a winter fairy

Happy friday dear friends!

I don't know about your area but here in my part of Germany the days have been cold and foggy. No snow yet, but I'd so wish for some! I have nearly done my christmas baking, the decorations are out and on sunday we can light up the first candle on the advent wreath, a german tradition where you light up one more candle each sunday until there are four the sunday before christmas eve. So some snow is all I am missing to get in christmas mood.

Well, they say there isn't any near so I thought I'd share a winter fairy card with you - maybe this will make her curious so she comes to my area to really see it? 

I used the special "Season's Greetings" image here, the one you were only able to get when ordering the whole set last weekend. And I think it was sold out really fast.

I love this image. I can feel the frosty wind playing with her hair and for sure there are some tiny snowflakes dancing around her. So I tried to bring this on a card - there are swirls and snowflakes, of course some lace and frosty colors. I also put  a frame from clear embossing powder around her. It's hard to see on the photo but it looks like a frozen window. And the white Distress Crackle Paint makes the frosty look perfect.

These are the Copic I used to do the coloring:

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


  1. Very beautiful! This card gives off the perfect winter feel. I can't wait to get my stamps and start using them, maybe they will come today! I'm a big fan of snow during the Christmas season as well, however we rarely see it here in Oregon(US) for Christmas. But I'll send out a prayer that you get yours, I'm sure that it looks beautiful over there when it snows!

  2. Beautiful card. I'm so annoyed that I missed the chance to get her at the weekend due to my busy schedule. I think it would have been worth buying the whole set just to get that one!!!
