singing joyfully CD holder by lauren bergold

our dear pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe absolutely ALWAYS rocks the category of "paper combining" when putting together the fabulous pixie kits, but for this month'sCHRISTMAS IN PARIS kit she has totally outdone herself, see?

for this 6x6" card i've used pink paislee's green scallop print, that gorgeous rich crate paper plaid, and a few details snipped from the webster's pages' holiday print. but it's not just the sweet little bird who'll be singing joyfully; so will my recipient, once they've opened it:

by folding up a flap on one side of my 12x6" card base, i made a little pocket into which i could slip one of my favorite holiday cd's! i printed the track list--and a festive greeting-- on clear inkjet labels from the office supply store, and affixed them to the card. i love that like most paper in pixie kits, the green scalloped pattern was double-sided, so there was no need for me to decorate the inside further... but i couldn't resist a few fussy cut blossoms!

speaking of blossoms, there's a gorgeous copper silk prima one on my front-cover collage. you get an entire pack of those, and i predict you'll love every single one! there are some gorgeous glitz design cardstock diecuts, too; the large victorian posie is one of them, i've popped it up on a bit of foam tape for extra dimension.

finally i ruffled and attached a bit of soft pink signature pixie dust seam binding, to act as a closure, and now i will just sit back and wait for this card's recipient to sing my praises!!! :)

Kirsty's Note -
That is one fabulous project, thanks pixie Lauren!!!
