Karen here today. I am sharing a card today that I made with the Fairy 1 die. I love the sweet “Once Upon a Time” release from Joset! The sentiments that go with it are very sweet.
To create this card, I cut an 8-1/2″x11″ sheet of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock in half and folded it to create a top-fold cardbase. Then I cut a piece of pink cardstock at 4″x5-1/4″ and another piece of Soft Finish Cardstock at 3-3/4″x5″ for the card front.
I cut the pieces of the Fairy 1 dieset with 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I usually lay them all out in order to help me figure out what needs to be colored with which colors. I then colored this sweet fairy with Copic markers as follows:
- Skin: E000, E01, R20 (for blusher)
- Eyes: C7
- Mouth: R4
- Dress and shoes: R81, R83, YG13, YG17
- Wings: YG00
- Hair: Y23, Y26
- Wand: E23, Y26
I used the Once Upon a Time Sentiments and the Stitched Hexagon Dies in varying sizes. I figured out what sizes by simply laying them out. (Note that once I got the pieces all ready to lay down, I moved things around just a bit!)
In assembling the card, I added some twine wrapped around the white piece and a couple jewels near the sentiment. That’s all! Fun and easy. Thank you for stopping by today!
Craftily yours, Karen
