Believe in the Magic

Happy Last Sunday Before Christmas to all my Blog Peeps and I do hope you are all doing well. 
Here's just a little bit different card from me. No designer papers in layers. A2 sized, background stamped directly on card base. The yellow strips of glitter paper was one leftover 12x12" strip. The silver stars were cut out of a large envelope I'd been saving using a Verve die. I fussy cut the fairy perched on a snowy pine bough from a Gecko Galz digitally printed collage sheet image. 
I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch and followed it as is except I kept the middle star in line with the others to better accommodate the fairy image.
The Technique Junkies star background was stamped in Platinum Brilliance ink. The Creative Expressions sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat-embossed with an embossing powder mix of Ranger Gold and Marigold. I Stickled the pine bough snow and the fairy's skirt and Santa hat. I used metallic glitter gel pens on her wings and wand.
Inside, a Stamplorations sentiment stamped in black Versafine ink.
On back, more of the stamped star background and gold heat-embossed Kaiserkraft siggie.

Some close-ups to show all the shimmer and shine!
And a final view. Thanks for visiting and until next time, stay crafty and well! xoxo

I adore the colours on your card - so bold and eye catching and perfect for the fairy. Definitely not your usual style but it's good to step out of our comfort zone every now and then!
