Chrissy, the Christmas Fairy at MPS

Wow, it's been weeks since my last post! I had been busy creating a leaflet design for my cousin's highschool reunion. And because of the unpredictable weather, I was not feeling so well the past few days.

Before I got sick, I won the "Name the Christmas Fairy" at Michelle Perkett Studio's new image. I suggested the name "Chrissy" representing the Christmas Spirit and I was so happy Michelle liked the name. I was able to color her but was not able to finish the card until now. I tried a new card fold technique called "Tri-fold Shutter Card" which involved a lot of measuring and scoring. There are various folds you can make but here's one tutorial you can start with. Here's my card:
I colored her in pink and red hues because I think she represents the true Christmas meaning of love and life. I colored her gorgeous wings with glitter. 
The sentiment is a part of the Snowman with heart image also from Michelle Perkett Studios and the frame is a freebie from Tiffany Doodles.
This is the Snowman with heart image and I added dots similar to the Christmas fairy image. I think it's cute in pink, don't you?

Your shutter card is GORGEOUS!!! (I had no idea that's what it was called...I'm so dense, I just call them "fancy fold" cards...heehee.)

Wanted to pop over to say thank you for stopping by my blog, too!
