Christmas Fairy Doodles

I made this card with one of the new christmas Fairy Doodles stamp sets from Buzzcrafts. I love these little designs and they are fabulous to colour too

I stamped the image on to white card and coloured in. I then chalked the image with Versa magic chalk pad then over stamped a swirl stamp around the edges of the image. I also stamped the swirls down the edge of the card blank and cut around the image to give the edge of the card a little extra detail. I made the buttons by making some matching backing paper in the same way as I chalked the card, then I punched them out with some round punches. Then I punched some holes in the centres with my Crop-a-dile. To finish them I heat embossed them with Ultra thick embossing enamel. The image was then mounted on Silver Miri card and I also stuck a piece of silver miri board on the inside of the card to show off the edge of the card.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
