I made this card for my great-niece's 5th birthday. I'm entering the Cutie Pie Challenge 'Spring Cuties', Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'. As the paper and card are from my snippets mountain I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Magical Fairies' Art Pad
Stamp: Ultimate Crafts L'aquarelle Designs 'Sentiment'
Die: Memory Box 'Classic Numbers', Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Wonky Rectangles'
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Ink: Versafine Deep Lagoon, Brilliance Pearlescent Purple
Snippets: Making Cards 'Springtime' paper (magazine freebie), white card
Other: Wink of Stella
I trimmed the purple paper to a square. As it was a snippet there was a chunk missing from one of the corners but I cut the largest square I could and then attached it to the card front. To hide the missing corner, I cut four triangles from a co-ordinating striped paper and attached them to the corners of the purple paper. I die cut and embossed the precoloured Art Pad image and die cut the number from the lower edge. The 'Today' stamp was part of a larger sentiment and I carefully cut the word away from the rest of the stamp (it can easily be pieced back together if I want to use the whole sentiment). I didn't have the right colour ink, so using my MISTI I stamped 'Today' once in Deep Lagoon and a couple of times in Pearlescent Purple to give the colour I wanted to match the backing paper. I die cut two smaller wonky rectangles from snippets of white card and attached them to the back of the image before attaching it to the card. I attached another small snippet of purple paper onto white card, die cut the number '5' and inlaid it into the topper. To finish I highlighted the fairy with a Wink of Stella.
