Summer fairies

As it is a new year, it is time to show off something new I tried. It was great fun and turned into one of my favourite cards thus far.

This card was made using very simple striped pink paper layered over a bright green plain card. I had ribbon matching the green card and tied a little bow for it. Then I made a floral border using a Martha Stewart puncher on deep pink card. The image itself was tricky. It is made with lots of layers of decoupage images glued together with gel glue. This is the first time I’ve used both decoupage images and the gel glue and it was getting tricky to align them properly when I got to the small bits at the top. The sentiment is a stamp from Lili of the Valley put on a pink scalloped circle. I made green branches with another Martha Stewart puncher and added several flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The different pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts as well.
