Hi there 🙂 I don’t usually make cards that are really fussy, but this one seemed to take a life of it’s own!! I colored up a beautiful fairy from the (now closed) Make It Crafty store with my Prismacolor pencils. After cutting it out with a pretty shaped die, I sprinkled some white and sparkly gold embossing powders over it, to give it a real fantastical look (the sparkles are so pretty, even though they don’t show up well in the photos!).
I then took 2 pieces of paper, dry embossed them, and slightly distressed the edges. I lightly brushed over the embossing with some clear ink, and sprinkled some more of the gold sparkle powder over that. I layered these pieces over a white card base, and added some pretty lace and a bit of gold ribbon to the top piece. I stamped a sentiment, cut it out with a die, then sprinkled a bit of the same gold powder on that, then popped it on the card. I went through my flower stash, and assembled some coordinating flower bunches, adding some pieces of the gold ribbon, and a few die cut leaves. Some gold adhesive embellishments finish this card off.
