Today I have two fairly identical cards to show you. A very good friend asked me to make Christmas cards for her daughter and niece, based around this card.
The girls are the same age, all but a day, but one is very blonde, while the other is much darker haired. So I decided to incorporate this into the cards, to personalise Pixie Holly a little more.
Pixie Holly was a freebie from Pollycraft earlier in the year before the shop closed. I have made several cards with her this year, she’s a pleasure to work with! As usual I coloured with Pro-Markers, adding some Stickles o the wings for a little magical sparkle. The spotty and striped background papers were from Digital Bake Shop on Etsy, and were a sale bargain! I cut the sentiment using some glittercard and my Silhouette, welding an offset version of the sentiment to a rectangle to create the red background. I matted the image onto a little green glittercard too. The little holly leaves have been abandoned in stash for ages, no idea where they popped up from!! Glad they’ve been put to good use now though 🙂
I based the cards around Sketch #225 from Saturday Sketch, in the current challenge, you can pick from a back catalogue of sketches – there really is one to suit every card!!
