New LOTV fairies

Hello lovely people,

The fairies are here!

It's release day at LOTV for the calendar fairies, and also some gorgeous Christmas stamps.

So, just to tempt you a little bit more I have another card with the adorable February fairy.
I've chosen a buckle fold design and if you want to see my tutorial on it, check out this post, which is actually back on my previous blog, just in case anyone is confused!


I was delighted that I managed to incorporate some of the hearts from the border for decoration...it's the little things!
The strip cut off the edge of the card base is used to create a cute 'buckle' to hold the card closed and here's what it looks like with it popped open.


You probably wouldn't notice but I added a couple of extra folds to the main part of the dress this time and a sprinkle of sparkle that comes as standard with fairies - lol!


This was one of those designs where I faffed around for ages trying to decide where to put the flowers and what sentiment to add.
Should it be teeny tags, a circular sentiment or maybe none at all?!
Thank goodness I remembered this fab wavy sentiment...it was perfect cut into a wavy banner to match the shape of the text :-)

The faffing was worth it Kat!! This is such a pretty card and the design so unusual and one I will definitely have a go at!! I was so very tempted by February Fairy ( my birthday month) but was won over by some Christmas ones instead!! xx
