Good Morning! I have a very special card today. This is a card that I made for my granddaughter’s birthday. She will turn 2 later this month and I chose the Stampin’ Up New Wonders cling stamp set for her card because the fairies remind me of her so much – she has the same round face, big eyes and baby curls. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I started with a panel of Sparkle glimmer paper which I ran through the large Stitched lace die and adhered it to a Highland Heather card base. I stamped the little fairy with the the flowing hair from the Stampin’ Up! New Wonders stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a panel of Whisper White. I then rubbed the lower left corner with the embossing buddy and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in VersaMark ink. I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set.
I colored the fairy with Soft Suede, light Petal Pink, Highland Heather, So Saffron and Pool Party Stampin Blends and colored the hearts with the dark Real Red Stampin’ Blend. I cut the image with the Stitched Ovals dies and cut a matching mat from Highland Heather using the Layering Oval dies. I adhered the panel to the mat with liquid glue and added some gemstones which were colored with the dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend.
I cut some leaf sprigs from Old Olive vellum with the Frosted Frames dies and glued them to the back of the oval. I attached the Oval to the card front with dimensionals. I wrapped a length of the Whisper White polka dot tulle ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.
On the inside of the card, I stamped some hearts and stars a couple of times from one of the fairy stamps by carefully inking just that part with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with the dark Real Red and Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend. I added a Mint Macaron mat and adhered it to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up! New Wonders stamp set is one of the host exclusives that are available only with Stampin’ Rewards that are available on orders over $150 or workshops with sales one $150. The fairies are so sweet and the sentiments are great too. I hope my granddaughter likes the card – she likes shiny and sparkly things, so I had to use the Sparkle paper for the lace. Thanks for visiting!
