I found a set of card blanks and envelopes at the DollarTree and thought I'd whip up some sweet holiday cards. So I grabbed some Christmas Magic and set to work.
I say I whipped up this set, but I began by spending a night fussy cutting an entire sheet of "Santa's Little Helpers" from the 12" Collection Pack. (I was watching Filmworker which was a really great documentary btw).
Next I added some wee transparent wings to the little dudes. I can just picture these little fellas fluttering about, switching out burnt out christmas lights, taking care of all the tiny chores that go unnoticed.
A band of gold embossing power backdrops a length of holly from Christmas Magic "Gifting Gala". An iridescent acrylic snowflake is added and a sentiment from Christmas Magic "Gifting Gala" or the Christmas Magic Ephemera pack.
Finally, those sweet little winged helpers!
I mean, how cute! Right?!
Some of the cards have a bit of jute twine added and a smidge of stickles sparkle because... well... glitter!

And I've still got a load of these cuties hopping around the work table. They might be making appearances until Easter!
You must have so much working with these cuties - I do hope you will keep them around for a while. Delightful cards - they are so fun & happy with a bit of goofiness thrown in for good measure. thank you so much - always good to smile & giggle.ReplyDelete
