Sweet November Preview "Christmas Fairwees" Day 1

Welcome to the first of three days of Sweet November October stamp previews. Do you remember the Fairwees collection introduced in August? Well, they are back in a holiday version! Today we are featuring Tree Trimmers with Jilly and Daphne.

Jilly and Daphne are busy little fairwees stringing a garland of popcorn and cranberries. Although things would go a lot faster if Daphne would quit sampling the popcorn. After stamping and coloring the images, I followed the thread of the stamp with baker's twine. The sentiment is also in this release and after stamping and cutting out with Spellbinders Nestabilities, I added some more popcorn and cranberries. I used the The Cat's Pajamas Cloud Border to cut the popcorn (thanks to Amy Rohl for that suggestion!) and a punch for the cranberry. The paper is from last years Basic Grey Jovial 6x6 pad.

  15. Gorgeous card - What a fab way to use twine! It's lovely to see how you've used the image in a different way to the other girls and teamed it with more old fashioned style paper yet it still works so well.
