The Tooth Fairy…

| Blog, Card Cupids, The Tooth Fairy, Wings and Willlows

For the Card Cupid Design Team Challenge this month we were kindly given a Digi Stamp from Wings & Willows.  I chose this lovely Tooth Fairy image as she was just so sweet and I know how my children would have loved to receive a card from The Tooth Fairy!

Recipe & Method

  1. I used a pre-scored 8″ x 8″ scalloped White card.  I then mounted brown card stock and Beige Patterned paper.
  2. I coloured the Image and then covered it with sticky back plastic, I cut it using the circle die and peeled off the top of the sticky back plastic.
  3. Sprinkle glitter over the image, it will stick to the sticky back plastic and cover the image lightly.
  4. Attach the image to a Brown scalloped circle and attach the circle to a mounted square.
  5. Stick a Doily behind the square so that only the frilly edges are showing.
  6. Adhere to a 6″ x 6″ square mounted onto Brown card stock.
  7. Print out the sentiment, cut and round the corners.  Attach to 6″ x 6″ square.
  8. Embellish with flowers and leaves.

To colour the image I used Promarkers:

  • Almond
  • Dusky Pink
  • Rose Pink
  • Tea Green
  • Vanilla
  • Caramel
  • Sandstone
