Fancy Folds with StampFairy

Good morning, I hope that you have enjoyed a wonderful weekend. We spent part of it at the lake enjoying the sunshine when there was some and hiding from the clouds when the sun had disappeared.

I did manage to get in a little crafting, good thing to as today is the start of another StampFairy challenge.
This week we are focusing on Fancy Folds so I hope that you will have some wonderful techniques to share with us.

For my card this week, I have turned to my favorite little snow friend George. Gerda created a fantastic new range of stamps with this old friend the other week and you can find them all here
I have coloured him using my signature George colours and added some half pearl tree decorations and some puffy liquid applique snow to embellish the image.

I have kept the card rather simple by following a wonderful sketch from Going Grey with Scrap Creations.

Because of the grid, this sketch was perfect for my Z-fold card. All of the papers are from a MME Christmas pad and I have only added a few little acrylic snowflake stickers as I really need to start making some cards that will go through the mail.

I hope that you will join us this week. I look forward to seeing your lovely works of art. Please be sure to stop by the StampFairy Challenge Blog and see the gorgeous creations that the rest of the DT have created to inspire you.

In addition to the range of Georege stamps that I have used for my card I would like to show you today's new release.

Be sure to keep an eye out. I am sure that George will be featured front and centre on my blog again soon.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
