Make Your Own Fairy Tale
Hi there! This new stamp set from Sweet Sentiment has me fully submerged into the world of fairies and fairy tales. As I was colouring up this sweet spring fairy, I pictured her flying over a patch of snowdrop flowers. So, that was my inspiration for my card today.
First I stamped my fairy image onto Sweet Sentiment Premium Colouring Paper. I then coloured her using Copic markers and die cut her out.
To make her appear to be flying, I created a gate fold card. I scored the front of a white A2 sized (4.25x5.5") top folding card base 1.25" from the bottom. Then I ink blended Catherine Pooler ink in Pink Champagne and Clay Mask above the score line, and Garden Party below the score line.
Next, I stamped just the flowers from the fairy stamp a bunch of times. I coloured them, fussy cut them out and then adhered to the bottom, green portion of the card front. Then, I trimmed the flowers that extend past the bottom.
Cut a strip of thick acetate (able to handle the weight of this large die cut) then I adhered one end behind the flowers. I added 2 strips of double-sided clear adhesive, .25" wide, removed the backer paper and placed my fairy on.
Next, I stamped and die cut my sentiment. I also die cut 5 extra, blank die cuts and adhered them behind the stamped one.
adhered my sentiment stack to the inside of the card, near the bottom. This gives something to hold the fold in place.
I think it's so cool how she appears to be flying over the flowers! I hope I have inspired you to create a flying fairy as well! Thanks for visiting!
