Peppermint Problems

Today I received a raven from the village of Crimson Cream. A couple nights ago a candy cane fairy had passed through the village handing out her sweet treats. Naive to the dangers of eating food of the fae, several villagers have since fallen ill. I knew their healers would not be able to help them with conventional methods; a strong magical antidote would be required. I tasked the Guardian of Glitter and Guild Apprentice Lindsay with creating the antidote while the Lady Commander of Copics and I located the candy cane fairy to destroy her before she could cause any further trouble.

This card was started by cutting the white and red shapes out using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I then stamped the Kraftin’ Kimmie “Noel” image and coloured her using Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is the one that comes with her. Some crinkle ribbon and a couple pearly looking flowers finished off the front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the Unity “Everything Christmas” kit. The candy cane in the corner is also a Unity stamp.

The envelope was stamped with the same candy cane to tie it all together and earn me +90 peppermint exp points. I’m not certain how that will be advantageous whilst questing, but I am sure to have fantastic breath.

This card will sweeten up the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #68 (2-die cuts, 4-ribbon, 10-red/green)

As the Guardian of Glitter and Guild Apprentice Lindsay are very high in white healing magic, they were able to quickly craft a cure and set out to Crimson Cream to administer the tonic. Meanwhile, my sister and I had tracked the candy cane fairy to the Sticky Forest where she had taken refuge with a clan of peppermint goblins. We cast our defensive spells, drew our weapons and headed into the goblin’s lair. Unlike most lairs I have been in, this one smelled minty fresh. I idly wondered if there was a way to harvest and bottle the peppermint scent...that is until an arrow whizzed by my head, bringing me back to the task at hand...slaying foes.

As always, I am always so impressed that your card insides and envelope are as beautiful as your card. I may need to get some of that crinkle ribbon. Thanks for sharing with us with MFP's Simple Salutations.
