No One Is Too Old For Fairy Tales

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lynn McAuley our challenge hostess for the month is continuing to issue the challenges.

Apparently today is Book Publishers Day  So for our challenge this week we are to create a card which features characters, a theme, or a quote from one of your favorite books!! Bonus points if it is on the current best sellers list!! 

Seeing it was a book theme, the first thing I decided was to use Divinity Designs' Book Fold Card with Layers die set to create a book fold card. This die was released in December and I was so happy that it did!

This was the perfect time to use the Clearly Besotted's Fairy Tale Maiden stamp set. I have had this stamp set for some time now and I was so happy when I found out that it would fit onto one side of the "book panels"

I stamped all the images and cut them out and then arranged them on the panel to create a scene.

I wanted to have a prince to rescue the princess who is stuck in the tower, so after going through my stash, settled on this one from Waffle Flower Crafts Level Up stamp set, it was the right size to go with the one of the other side of the book.

I again used the shrubs to create my scene. I also added a sentiment which is from Stamping Bella's Fairy Tale Squidgy stamp set.

For the front of the card I added a Castle using Karen Burniston's Castle Pop-up die set. I love that this can be used flat as well as on a pop-up card. I also added the Happily Ever After sentiment which I die cut from Teal Glitter Cardstock and layered onto white cardstock, offsetting one of the white layers.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
