Fairy birthday card

I made this birthday card for my niece who was a bit like Agnes from the Minions movies when she was little, and likes unicorns!

I used an 8 x 8 black card blank and the Hunkydory Twilight Kingdom kit, plus some marble Adorable Scorable card as a mat for the topper. Then I added some lilac pearls to finish it off.

I forgot to take a photo of the inside and have already left the card for her! However what I did was use an insert on the right side and put a matching border down the left of the insert. I also cut a unicorn from white card using the Magical Kingdom Moonstone die set and added that to the left side of the inside.

Happy halloween

these are my cards for the Fairy and Unicorn October Challenge, also the first Halloween cards I've ever made!

The first one is made using the Skellie Gossip stamp from IkesArt which I mounted on to black card and then added cobwebs to the corners. I created the background and sentiment using Craft Artist and some Halloween digikits which I then layered on to the same card, then added the skeleton image using some foam pads.

The second one is also from IkesArt and is called Trick or Treat. For this one I made my first Z fold card. I coloured the image using Promarkers in Orange, Terracotta, Gold, Almond and Black, plus Spectrum Noir CG3 Green. I cut the image with an oval die and layered on to black card. I decorated the Z fold piece with orange card which I'd embossed with a dotty embossing folder and layered it on to black card. I used green card to match the dress for the top panel. To finish it off I drew a cobweb and added a Trick or Treat sentiment and a pumpkin.

I hope you like the cards, please join us at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge this month.

Another anniversary card

this is an anniversary card made for my bother and sister-in-law.

I basically used two 8 x 8 cards with the backs glued together, I then scored the two fronts down the middle to create a folded back gate fold card.

To decorate the inside I had chosen a page from the Hunkydory Little Book of Anniversaries which I layered on to silver mirri and then I created a mat of pink patterned paper to co-ordinate with the image. 

On the two front panels I matted and layered the same pink patterned paper on to silver mirri to create two panels. I decorated the panels with the Tonic Happy Anniversary sentiment, Affections heart and initials cut using the Tonic Clarice alphabet, all cut from deep pink card and silver mirri layered together.

Thanks for stopping by, if you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it.
