Natural Woman



Our challenge this week at Paper Sundae's is to create a card or project using a Woman image with the added element of Nature.  I chose SNOW as my nature element.

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Wags n' Whiskers.



  I was generously given this beautiful image Laila to design with.  I've been seeing all these beautiful Christmas/Winter fairies and wanted to try to do one myself.

Since I was busy last week getting ready for my trip, I needed a quick card design to get this card done.  I chose to try a Joy Fold card for the first time.  My first attempts at anything never go fast so I don't know what possessed me (LOL) but I'm so glad it did it because it really was fast and so much fun.  You're going to see more Joy Folds from me in the near future.  (My husband just wonders if the recipients of these type of cards will know how to "open" them without tearing them up!!)  I don't know why he has to stress me out with those type of questions!!!  LOL  

I've used My Mind's Eye Signature Christmas DP with a PaperTrey Ink Vintage Cream card base that I embossed with my Cuttlebug snowflake folder.  Because I didn't want the back of the embossing to show, I added a single layer behind the card itself so that you don't see it when you turn the card over.  I adapted my card size from the tutorial you can find on HERE.  I cut a tiny piece of foam that came in the snowflake brads packaging to Pop it up so that it can be used to hold the card closed, but still allow it to be opened.  (If they don't tear it up like my husband thinks they will...Grrrr)  

Don't forget, Paper Sundae's is currently holding a DT Call.  You have until this Tuesday, Oct 26th to apply!!  You'll get to work with a bunch of super cool chicks (like me, LOL) and receive occasional freebies too. Click HERE for details and to apply, but you need to HURRY!!!
