Clipart Fairy Nature Boy

Four weeks today it's Christmas Eve, how scary is that?!!! I have friends and family who have bought all their Christmas pressies, have them wrapped and have written out their cards, but all I have so far is a couple of gifts. I was just about to type that next Saturday I am going out to do my Christmas shopping when I realised that I have a Clipart Fairy workshop that day, and of course crafting has to come first LOL! Thank goodness for internet shopping hehe!

Today I have two cards to show you using the Nature Boy Large Frame Kit, one for a boy and the other for a girl.

This large kit contains 28 Jpeg 12 x 12 papers; 1 frame with a transparent centre (so you can add things behind it) 1 frame with a white centre (so you can add things on it) the word art "Have an awesome day"The Nature Boy Super Frame, this Super Frame can be re-sized to whatever you want and the decoupage bits will always fit. Please note the nature boy only comes to you inside the frame.
PNG card base; 2 PNG inserts including 1 with a blank oval & 1 plain; 3 PNG circle sentiments for birthday & best wishes and all for only £2.65.

I printed out some of the papers from the kit onto card and then matted and layered them to make up my design. I used the super frame with decoupage for the front of card, and cut a slightly larger oval from one of the printed papers to mat it onto, I printed out the sentiment circle twice then added a plain blue circle with the 'awesome day' word art onto one of them. I inked around the edges of everything with a brown ink pad, and printed the designs for the inserts onto paper.

 I am entering this card into the following challenges.
Sassy Cheryl's - #91 Anything Goes
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes


There is a good variety of colours in the kit, including a bright pink so I thought I would show how versatile the kit is by making a girlie card too, I just added a girlie graphic, there are lots to choose from in the Clipart Fairy store, I chose a cute Butterfly Angel.

For my easel card I once again printed various papers onto card and used them to mat and layer my design. Using the frame in the kit as a guide I made up a pink version adding word art from Wendy's wordart 1 and the Butterfly Angel 3B. I aslo glittered around the oval and parts of the butterfly angel. I printed a sheet of pearl paper with  strips of plain orange and green from the kit, leaving part of it unprinted, and used this to die-cut the various parts of my flower. The flowers were made with a Die-namics Daisy Upsy Daisy die set and the swirl is from Sizzix flourishes and swirls set. I made up three little boxes for the inside, 1 decorative, 1 for the birthday sentiment and the other to write your message on. The stopper was cut with Martha Stewarts Deep Edge Punch Garden Trellis, and decorated with little coloured buttons from MeiFlower, which I thought picked up the spots in the backing papers.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.
