Fairyopolis is coming!!

Happy Friday everyone! Here's another wonderful card style that you can make using The Ultimate Tool from Crafter's Companion. This card opens in the center. You may not be able to immediately tell that from this photo here, but see the photo below that shows the card open up. This shows how it will look when the recipient receives it. I used some wonderful clear stamps from the newest Fairyopolis clear stamp sets, as well as some beautiful paper from the 12x12 paper pad for Fairyopolis. I made this card in a 6" square size, which means I could cut my 12" sheets of paper in half to make 2 cards per sheet. I selected a beautiful pink butterfly sheet from the Fairyopolis pad. These items are about to be released from Crafter's Companion! Aren't they beautiful? (read about it HERE) I colored the Fairy using Copic Markers and trimmed her out using Spellbinders Nestabilities in Scalloped Oval shapes. I stamped a wonderful saying on the front of the card "Do you Believe in fairies?" as well as adding additional butterfly images stamped onto the printed paper in two different pink shades of Colorbox Chalk ink. Stamps I used: Fairyopolis Spring Collection-Primrose Fairy, butterfly; Fairyopolis Fall Collection - Saying "Do you Believe in Fairies?", "Have a wonderful day", butterfly; On the edges of the card, I added ribbon in pink and brown to highlight the seams of the card. I also used the same ribbon inside the card to add a matching touch with the saying, "Have a wonderful day." Here's the final card image that shows how the card will open up and appear to the recipient when they get it. Fairyopolis is a wonderful collection and all the pieces go well together. There's also a great card making kit that comes with a wonderful selection of cards, die cuts, vellum, flowers, and everything you can imagine, including a booklet full of ideas! I can't wait to make you something with those goodies....until next time!

There's some wonderful blog candy available from my blog that was a gift from Crafter's Companion. Be sure to go sign up. In the USA (CLICK HERE); Outside the USA (CLICK HERE). Have a fairy nice day!

  4. I thought I left you a comment on this but don't see it. Boy am I loosing it! I love this card. I love the way it opens and you put the fairy right there in the middle. That is so nice and the colors (love the butterfly paper) as well as your coloring is out of this world.
