its your BIG day

Hi everyone! I’m back with one more project I created last Thursday for The Outlawz Challenges! That was the day that I set a record in my studio – ten cards in one day. I finished two that I had already started and then created eight more. Several were for The Outlawz, several were for two guest gigs coming up and several were with new products for another design team I’m on. Definitely a busy and productive day for sure! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! This card is for the Twisted Thursdays Challenge where Fabrika Fantasy is our sponsor. The challenges are always Anything Goes with an optional twist. This time the twist is Glitter! I used loose glitter, glitter paper and glitter washi tape for this birthday card!

This card features the Cottage Cutz Sweet Fairy die set. It has a gazillion pieces so I die cut them all from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and colored them individually with alcohol markers. It brought back childhood memories of coloring my paper doll clothes back in the day! The little fairy was created first and set aside. I used loose glitter on her wings. ;)

I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base along with a white layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and dotted and striped silver foil vellum panels which I adhered to the layering panel. I added a strip of red glitter washi tape to the seam and then adhered the panel to the card base. I punched several 1/2″ circles from Stampin’ Up Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and adhered them over top of the foiled dots in random places. I adhered the fairy on foam dimensionals and added a sentiment stamped in navy blue ink to pull in the color of her dress. The final touch was adding tiny iridescent gemstones to the stars on the sentiment strip and larger iridescent gemstones on several of the foiled dots.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock and embellished it with a wide strip of the striped silver foil vellum and a strip of red glitter washi tape, stamped the sentiment in navy blue ink and layered the panel on CutCardStock Red Wagon cardstock.

And one more peek… totally loving how this turned out! It’ll be set aside for a very special granddaughter’s birthday later this year! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
