"Nothing can be truer than fairy wisdom"

Hello Crafty Friends!

It may be January but my thoughts have turned to spring.  I love the beauty of spring gardens as they are full of bright bulbs and cheep-cheep-cheeping birds.  Spring garden life is captivating.  Seeing the earth awakening from the winter sleep and new plants bursting from the soil carpet is amazing.  Life is truly magical.

Garden magic inspired today's card.  I wanted to make something bright, beautiful and magical.  Fairies are definitely all three and Suzanne's fairy stamp set, Nothing can be truer than fairy wisdom, was the focal point of the card front.

Nothing Can Be Truer, Set of 2 - Mounted
Card instructions:
  1. Create a top fold card base using white card stock.
  2. Cut and mat purple glitter paper.
  3. Cut patterned paper smaller than mat in step 2.  Outline using gold marker (optional).  Mount to card front.
  4. Die cut white card stock and mount.
  5. Cut and mat purple glitter paper to white die cut using double faced foam tape.
  6. Cut patterned paper smaller than mat in step 5.  Outline using gold marker (optional) and mount to card front.
  7. Use ornate die to cut purple card stock.  Mount.
  8. Stamp quote onto white card stock using purple ink.  Die cut and outline using gold marker (optional).  Mount to card front using double faced foam tape.
  9. Create bow and mount using liquid adhesive.  Adhere tag.  Apply Stickles at will.
  10. Apply sparkly gems.
  11. Decorate inside of card as desired.  (Below are the inside views of my card.  It is nice to create a pocket using patterned paper- just in case you would like to use the card as a gift card holder.  The white card stock is also not stamped yet- it is left open for a Quietfire sentiment stamp.)
The quote is so sweet!  
Isn't the stamp lovely?  I can't help but smile when I read it.


Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the happy card.
Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
