Christmas Card Club Challenge #3 - Angels or Fairies

Hi Crafters,

Today is a new challenge at our fun Christmas Card Club where we try and make Christmas cards all year round in order to alleviate some of the last minute panic nearer to Christmas.
Well today it was GranMargaret's turn to choose a theme and so we have ...


This proved rather tricky for me as I don't seem to have any dies that fit the bill or many images either and although we can opt for the Anything Goes option this year I wanted to try and follow the theme.
I then found a Mo Manning digital image of this cute little angel called Rafe that I had in a file which I'd never coloured up before and so here he is...twice!
I flipped the image in my design program and made it a little smaller for perspective.

Image - Rafe - Mo's Digital Pencil
Coloured with Promarkers
Paper - Craft Sensations 'Traditional Christmas'
Tattered Lace Pearl Rectangle Die
Craft Essentials Sentiment Die
Embossed Holly Berry Card stock
Wink of Stella pen on their wings

Challenges I'd like to enter:
I Love Promarkers - #351 Embossing
Fab n Funky - #379 Christmas
Cute Card Thursday - #515 ATG
CHNC Every Saturday - #371 ATG / Quick & Easy
Crafty Calendar Challenge - 2 or More Layers

I hope you are all keeping well so far this year, there have been so many bugs around and I'm afraid I seem to have caught a couple of them recently so that is why I haven't been around much. Hopefully I am on the mend now and robust enough to fight anything else off, I'm quite fed up with feeling run down now.

Well I will be back with my Passion For Promarkers card on Tuesday so I will try and visit you all before then.

Take care,

These are so cute Lorraine....that’s the joy of Digi images flipping and changing size and your card is so skilful...of course it’s beautifully coloured as always a real joy of a card
I know what you mean about the bugs I am in bed at the moment with this awful winter vomiting bug picked up from my 6yr old great niece really laying me low...hope you continue to get better and back to full throttle soon ..hugs xxxxx

I struggled too, but I think you've done a better job and I wish I was clever with digital images so I could adapt a little more. Yours are fab and fun. Zoe x

Oh my goodness, these wee angels are darling. I like the perpective you achieved by flipping and rotating the second bauble and making it smaller. Not sure I even know how to do that! But sure wish I did!

Beautiful card.

Marianne's Craftroom said...

Oh this is so cute and so clever with the perspective too. Hope you are fully recovered soon x

Christine Harrop said...

Sorry you are feeling unwell Lorraine. Hope you feel well again soon. This is a great image and a great card. This is why I love working with digi images because they are so versatile to change. Christine x

Sorry to hear you've been unwell, but certainly hope you're on the mend now, and don't catch anything else. So much of this virus & bug stuff is about everywhere. These little Rafe angels always make me smile...they look like they have just been up to mischief to me. Brilliant coloring on the ornaments too...great shading with the higlights that gleam. Love the way you've creating the beautiful framing on each layer, which really compliments the colors of the ornaments. Well done on meeting this challenge! TFS & Hugs

Hi Lorraine,
what an excellent card and your design is excellent too.
Love those images and your colouring is super.
What a clever person you are to flip the other one and make it smaller.
I just wouldn't know where to start on that one.
Sorry to hear you have caught the horrid bugs going around.
I am still coughing and into my 8th week, but have heard it takes for ever to go away.
Last night I was up every hour with my drey tickly cough.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

A super card Lorraine, such a sweet angel - I love how you have flipped one of the images and made one smaller, a beautiful gold frame and sentiment.
I'm sorry to hear that you have been poorly, I hope you are well on the mend.
