FAIRY “MAKE A WISH” CARDS
By: Melissa Merritt
“I made some 4 x 5½” Birthday cards using Graphic 45’s Fairie Wings Journaling and Ephemera Cards. I fussy cut the flowers and fairies from the Journaling Cards and then created soft backgrounds to attach them to. These cards turned out adorable, but I had some help with the Magic Iris die from Lawn Fawn. Below are steps to show how I fussy cut the cards and created these soft backgrounds.
The Fairie Wings collection makes some magical cards.
The “Make a Wish” center is stamped and then I used white embossing powder.
You can see by the pictures that I choose my Journaling cards and cut out the flowers and fairies.
I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxides: Speckled Egg, Picked Raspberry and Shabby Shutter. I inked the entire card. Then I took the same ink on my craft mat, added water and used a paint brush to add splatters onto the card.
Once the background is complete, I added my flowers and fairies, and then assembled my cards.
I hope this inspires you to make your own magical fairy cards.
