Good afternoon. Trust you all had a wonderful Easter. We had a few lovely sunny days here in Vancouver over Easter weekend and now is back to the grey raining days again.
One of the ladies I used to work with in our company is retiring end of month. I am always fond of her needle-work skills and her attention to details. She is also an avid gardener. I made this spring fairy card for her retirement.
This is a shaped easel card using Webster's Pages diecut DP. The fairy image is a photo stamp from Stampsmith. I stamped it on glossy paper with Jet Black Archival ink and lightly colored the dress and wings with pastel green and blue. Dies used here are from Memory Box and Spellbinders.
I made the 4 larger flowers. I love WP's princess petals but they are just too big for cards. Since I have some WP lace and rolls of sheer ribbons I bought from dollar stores and Hallmark store, I decided to make my own sheer fabric petals. It is best to use materials with synthetic content so when you singe the petal edge over tealight/candle flame, it will curl up to form cup shape. The dimension of my knockoff princess petals ranges from 1" to 1 3/4" in diameter. So, give this a try, it is quite easy.
Thanks very much for stopping by, and have a great afternoon.
I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
