Fairy Birthday

Hello there, today I have a card to share that I made for my niece for her birthday. She is a girly girl so I wanted to go with something pink and purple and glittery. The front of the card was inspired by Nichol Spohr but I also wanted to do decorate the inside, so I went with a pop up design.

For the front, I started off by cutting a rectangle of cardstock and then blending over distress inks to make a sky. Using the LF Puffy Cloud dies, I cut some clouds from white cardstock, along with a piece from vellum. These were adhered to the front of the distress inked panel. The sentiment, from the LF Scripty Sayings set was stamped on the bottom cloud.

The fairies from the LF Fairy Friends set were stamped on to white cardstock, along with the wands. These were coloured with Copics Markers and cut out with the matching dies. These were adhered to the front of the card with foam tape. I then added a sprinkling of confetti from Little Things from Lucy's Cards. I adhered them with Multi Medium Matte.

For the inside, I first took a piece of white cardstock and blended Broken China Distress Ink on to it, to follow on the sky from the front. This was adhered to the top part of the inside. I then added another cloud cut from white cardstock. I took a piece of green paper from the LF Let's Polka paper pad and cut this using the ME Grassy Border Trio dies. I then cut two pop up pieces in to using the ME Pop Up dies. This was then adhered to the bottom piece of the inside.

I took a white piece of cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Fairy Friends set on to it. I then cut the top of the panel using the SSS A2 Card Curved Edge die. This was adhered below the grass piece. I then stamped the flowers, along with another fairy, coloured them in and die cut out. I already had the house stamped and coloured from the 30 day colouring challenge. The fairy and the house were adhered on to the pop up pieces and then the flowers behind. To finish off, I added a liberal coating of Wink of Stella to the flowers, the house and all the fairy's wings.

I used so many supplies on this card! My desk was a mess afterwards but I think it was worth the extra effort in doing the inside as well. I am hoping that my niece likes it! Thanks so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a great week!
