Fairy Hugs Zelena and friends

Hi there and welcome back to Fairy Hugs!  Joy, here today with a magical slimline Christmas card to share with you. featuring Zelena, Corwain, Wilwin, and the Musical Walkway!  

But, first I would love it if you would subscribe to our email (on the side bar) so that you stay up to date with our latest products and events.   

This card was a blast to make!  I don't typically do grunge, but this one I did and I love it!   But it's still classic Holidays!   For the main panel I stamped the Musical Walkway, Corwain, and Wilwin with Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink and heat embossed them with clear powder.   I used the same method with Zelena, but on white paper and fussy cut her out.  I added just a hair of watercolor to her wings to make them look transparent and then popped her up on foam tape in the center of the Musical Walkway.  I distressed the cranberry paper with Distress Oxide Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo.  The sentiment is a retired set from my stash, but thought it was perfect.  

The background layer was made using the negative space of several snowflake die cuts.   I sponged several Distress Oxides through them and heat embossed with clear powder.  I then added Vintage Photo to obtain an embossed resist look.  From there I distressed the edges with a scissors blade.  I mounted this on gold mirror card stock so that it would pop and finally onto a kraft card base.   

Ok... I just love how Zelena pops!!!  What's your favorite part of the card?  I'd love to know!
