Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Birthday's are generally magical when you're small - all those people coming to see you, and the party and the cake and the presents. As you get older, I've found that they start to become just another day. Which is sad when you think about it. There are so few things that we as adults get as excited for as a child whose birthday is nearly upon them.
Today, I wanted to share this super sweet fairy birthday card that I created for a little girl who is turning 6 very soon.
To begin, I stamped the fairy and the house from Lawn Fawn's "Fairy Friends" stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on 110lb Copic-friendly cardstock. I used the scallop border from MFT Blueprints #27 to cut the front panel.
I masked off the house and added the flowers and the little rock path from the same set and coloured everything with Copic markers.
I masked off all my images and the scalloped border and used Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn Distress inks for the grass, Shaded Lilac, Milled Lavender, Spun Sugar and a bit of Victorian Velvet for the sky.
Once the background was completely dry, I stamped the greeting (also from "Fairy Friends") and added the chunky star glitter by the fairy.
To finish off the card, I popped the panel up on some foam tape and adhered that to a piece of pink paper and then mounted the whole piece to the front of a standard A2 sized card base. For just a bit more sparkle, I used my Quickie Glue pen by Sakura on the petals of the house and on the fairy's wings then sprinkled them with Lawn Fawn's fine Prisma Glitter.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me on the right side bar or over on Facebook, so you don't miss any future posts. Drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
