Here is the card that I have made for my daughters friend. It will be her 4th birthday so thought the Dottie Fairy would be appropriate. The backing papers and sentiment are from the crafters companions Girls CD. Dottie is coloured with pearly water colour paints that i bought from The Works. I love these paints and they are soooo much cheaper than H2O's, just wish there was a larger selection of colours. The letters for her name have been printed out and then clear embossed to give them a 3d effect.

The Challenge on Papertake weekly this week is to ma a Christmas card. No special instructions.
I decided to have a go at making one of these slide cards, and i like it so much i may just make some more.
I have used the penny black christmas critters stamp for this, coloured with watercolour pencils and highlighted with sakura clear stardust. i can't remember where the backing paper is from as its some scraps left over from last year.

I was inspired after looking through websites to make this Advent calendar. I found the idea on Make the moments last. They have some great projects to try. Now just got to find somewhere to store it safe until December so that it doesn't get damaged.

The Daring cardmakers challenge this week is to 'Use images, use colour, use embellishments that make you feel cold and remind you of winter.'
So here is my card
The backing papers are by Marie Johnstone, which are then layered onto matt silver cardstock. The snowman is diecut with my cuttlebug and then watercoloured with my whisper pens and the boddy glittered up. The snowflakes are die cut with my cuttlebug from white glitter card and then stuck onto acetate to give them a 3d motion effect.
hope you like it

Firstly take an A4 piece of card stock and fold it length ways down the centre. I then trimmed the card so that it was 20cm's wide (10cm's either side of fold).
