unleash your inner sparkle

Hi everyone! Happy Fri-YAY – hope you’ve had a great week! I’m delighted to be back on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created an adorable CAS fairy birthday card featuring the most adorable fairy castle – complete with fairies! I apologize about the angle of the first photo… foil is SO hard to photograph so I thought I’d angle downward from above which did help a little bit.

I created a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock, along with a gold foil cardstock layer and a CutCardStock Basis Pink cardstock layer which I adhered together. Using the ScrapMan Fairy Castle die, I cut the fairy castle from gold foil cardstock and adhered it to the upper left portion of the front panel. I added one green fairy and two pink fairies, and some iridescent gemstones. I then added a gold foil strip across the bottom and stamped the sentiment in black ink just above the foil strip. You’ll probably laugh when you notice that I used a unicorn stamp set from my stash – but it yielded the same fantasy/magical result so I went with it! ;) The final touch was adhering three medium size iridescent gemstones to the strip.

The inside panel consists of a gold foil cardstock layer and a CutCardStock Basis Pink cardstock layer which I adhered together and embellished with a stitched rectangle die cut that I cut from Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock. I added a narrow strip of the gold foil cardstock horizontally across the top portion of the panel and stamped the sentiment in black ink.

And one more peek… I’m absolutely smitten with this fairy castle! Such an adorable card! ;)

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
