Fairy Good Friend

Hi Crafty Friends,

t's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog.  As challenge hostess for the month I continue to issue the challenges.

Our challenge this week is ... More than 1 Fold - Create a card that has more than one fold… Gatefold, Z Fold Card, Easel card etc. 

I had thought about creating a different style of card for this challenge. However I finally received my Hello Bluebird stamps & dies that I ordered way back in August a few weeks ago. Ever since getting them, I have been busy with Design Team stuff or the challenges I had to do didn't work with my new stamps/dies. 

Fellow Design Team member Lois Bak recently shared a Portrait style Slimline Easel Card she created.  I have made a Slimline Easel Card before, but that was a landscape one, so as one of the Hello Bluebird dies I was wanting to play with was this Fairy Glade Scene Vertical die, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to use it.

For the background of my card I created a colorful sky using Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick; Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet. I then splattered some Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust all over the background to add a little magical shimmer.

This Slimline die is a little like a jigsaw puzzle, so it was easy enough to add color to all the pieces using a variety of inks and Copic Markers.

I decorated the card using Hello Bluebird's Fairy Garden stamp set.

I used the mushrooms from Hello Bluebird's Fairy Glade Scene Horizontal Die to add the mushrooms to the bottom panel of my card.

I added a fairy themed sentiment to the top portion of this panel.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.
