Snuggle up

Hello lovely people,

Here we go again with a new challenge at Crafty Little Fairies and very sadly, it is our last ever challenge :-(

Our final theme for you is... HOLLY AND/OR IVY

Well, it pretty much had to be another Christmas card with that theme didn't it?! 
I've done a stepper design and there is holly both on my image and the little charm I added.


These stepper designs are great for using up quite small bits of DP and I love adding a little detail to the top of the front step with a border punch.


I always add a strip of card in the centre of my stepper designs so that it can't slip open when standing so I thought I'd show you, just in case you're interested!


And this post wouldn't be complete without a close up of the sweet bunnies all cosy in their stocking.


Card recipe;
Image: from LOTV but now discontinued
DP: Vintage Frost Basics - Maja Design (available from Live and Love Crafts)
Tag: Christmas sentiment tags - LOTV
Punched edge: Cherish (punch around the page) - Martha Stewart
Kraft letters: cut with my Cricut

I fell in love with your card when I first saw it on our Admin blog, Kat. Your colouring of the sweet image is truly amazing, and thank you for the fab tip about the 'brace' to support the steps.

Hugs,
