Funky Fairy challenge - Christmas!

WOW, made some very quick cards today for the Funky Fairy challenge this week . . . the theme is Christmas. I have used small scraps of paper and then embellished with eyelets . . . I so love eyelets and should use them more often (mental note to self!). I made a whole host of similar cards to this design last year for Aaron to give to his class mates. They are quick & easy to make & I think that they still look Christmassy.



Vey simple card design using white paper, chalked along the edges. The layered tree is made using papers from "Let's get Traditional" kit and decorated with candy cane eyelets & angel eyelet on the top of the tree.




Now how simple is this card!?!?! Again using white paper offcuts chalked edges (shimmer chalks) and then a few blue gems to create a snowy look. Finally silver tree eyelets mounted onto blue card with a vellum backing which has had a pale blue backing printed onto it from the FREE "Blue Xmas" kit.



I hand drew the baubles and then cut them out from left over bits from the "Let's Get Traditional" kit. Each bauble has then been decorated with panels (again using offcuts) and finished with various eyelet designs. Doodled to create the strings so that the baubles look like they are hanging down.

Will definitely be making more of these style cards again as they were so quick and also use up bits from my scrap box that I never seem to throw away!
