I was so happy, proud and just generally chuffed to bits to be asked to join the Design Team on Crafty Cardmakers and this is the first challenge/spotlight I've taken part in.
I was asked to make a special card for a lady in my Mum's work for her 40th birthday and this is what I came up with. The card I used was printed using the Flower Fairy cd from Crafters Companion in two different colours. The little fairy is the Zinnia fairy also from the CD.
I cut the letters, numbers and the decoupage using my Craft Robo, I trimmed the white border on some of the decoupage so the fairy looked right. I used a Quickie Glue Pen on the edges and dipped them in some gliding flakes to get the nice edge to the letters and the numbers on the box. I added some flowers cut with a die and held together with a brad and the same ribbon I had used to tie the book together. I added some Glamour Dust to the little fairy for some sparkle.
I haven't done decoupage for ages so it was nice to do some. I am really looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing what you've done with decoupage, if you want an explanation and an example of how to make your own see the Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight Blog.
