Yuletide Greetings

Hello my crafting friends, hope this finds you safe and well, plenty of hugs to those who need them. 

I have another Elf & Fairy card for you today, one of my favourites, it was done in all sepia tone so an easy one to make. I do not think I have shown this one so apologies if I have.

I stamped my card with the brick work from The Enchanted Doorway using Vintage Photo and painted them in with a little water, spreading the ink out, the window was another stamp that I cannot remember who by but it fitted in well with what I wanted. I cut out the windows using a craft knife then placed Acetate on the back. I added a little flower-soft snow on the windows.

I die cut and embossed my Fairy & Elf and painted them using Vintage Photo DI.

I found an old vintage Christmas scene on the internet and placed this behind the Fairy and positioned her onto the back of the card as if she was looking out of the window.

For the Elf I made the back version then placed him in front of the window looking in. I placed more of the snow flower-soft at his feet.

I matted and layered this onto Black & Gold card using Foam Tape then stamped my sentiment again using Vintage Photo and made it into a ribbon banner and added this at the top of the card as seen.

I did enjoy making this and loved the finished card.
