I just love these papercraft fayres but always spend too much money and then spend several hours rearranging my craft room to accommodate it. Even if there are only a few items it effects everything else and so many boxes are emptied and refilled with something else which then has to be relabelled, is it a chore? Absolutely not I love it, trouble is after the rearranging I can find nothing!!! Anyway I did have time to make a few more Xmas cards this weekend and here they are

I'm having a break from Christmas card marking thro necessity since I have lots of birthdays at this time if year. This card is for my brother in law and is made using a Sheena Douglas stamp stamped with distress inks (walnut stain) and then a damp paintbrush to blend. For highlights in the water and on the sails I used h2o's. it was mat and layered on coredonations that has been embossed.

This one started out with an idea that i would make a card and envelope combined so that the folder would be opened up and the image would be part of it. it seemed like a good idea at the time but my mother-in-law, who this is for, loves verses and where would I put it? so the topper was added to an 8x8 square card and the folder has become a rather nice container for the card.
The background of the topper is stamped with flitter glue using an indigoblu poppies stamps and gilding flakes have been applied. the background is pan pastels but i sprayed it with a gold glimmer mist to set it and add a bit of a shine.
The butterflies have been cut out on my grand caliber and i used the darker pan pastels to colour them and again sprayed them with glimmer mist.
I hope she likes it.
