Nellie Snellen - fairy on present (christmas card

Thought I had better get started as Christmas is not far away ... only 61 sleeps. So made a Christmas card to share with you. Ive had this little stamp about a month sitting on my desk. Its a Nellie Snellen stamp and shes just a little cutie.
I used lots of glitter in this card Yet picturing glitter and getting it to sparkle on my photos is difficult to show you effectively.
The fairy image was masked off. Then the  background was stamped with a
 Great Impressions wooden stamp.
I stamped it with chalk ink pixie pink. Then I added holographic embossing powder I have had for years, Heated it to set the embossing powder. Then I coloured fairy with copic markers.
Added lovely bronze gold coloured glitter to stars on image and glamour dust to fur trim of her jacket
layered my lace, ribbon and daisy trim that I think looks like snowflakes,added button clusters.

Don't know if you can see from pictures. I used some of this organza glittered snowflake fabric
over the top of my design papers. I have had it a year, seen it thought it looked lovely, bought it then thought what do I do with it. Then had a light bulb moment... I will layer it over the papers and it worked well with this card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Please feel free to leave comment or ask questions about the cards I make. All comments are truly appreciated.
