Today there was a Pre Winter Festival Fair in the market square of the village. The Lady Commander of Copics and I went to see it we could find any hidden gems, bespelled baubles, enchanted embellishments, magical mysteries, or ...you know...Christmas ornaments. Even though the Guild Hall attics were overfilled with Winter Festival decorations, the Lady Commander and I could not help but purchase more.
This is another card from my postcard set series. You can see the first one here. I started by stamping the post card from the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set. The Christmas bauble, from the Lawn Fawn “Ornate Ornaments” set, was watercoloured with Distress Markers. I then decided it needed more bling and used some glittery Stickles on the swirls, earning me +444 sparkly XP points. I also clear embossed a shiny star and positioned the ornament so it looked like the shininess was coming from it. The postmark was stamped with the Kaisercraft "Twig & Berry Postmarks" set and the sentiment came from a Simon Says Stamp set (don’t know the name as I won it and it arrived without packaging...ooooo….mystery XP points).
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using The Greeting Farm’s “Holiday Blessings” set, tying in the ornament theme of this card.
The outside was stamped with the postage line things (I'm really not sure what they're called) from the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set and again with the “Twig & Berry Postmarks” set.
This card will have a ball in the following challenges:
Unlike previous years, we came away from the fair with our coin purses still half full, only purchasing a few new ornaments. I was fairly certain that one I had purchased was enchanted, unbeknownst to the seller. Time to head back to the Guild Hall and unravel its secrets.
