Little Claire - DT application entry

This is my card that I'm entering for the Little Claire Designs DT call. The stamp set I used for the fairy, flower background, butterflies and flowers embellishments is 'Blossom Fairy' by Little Claire Designs. I wanted to show how you could make a whole card with just one stamp set and that you could create your own backing paper and embellishments with it too.

The colour scheme I chose for the card was red, pink and white.

I stamped the fairy image, flowers and butterfly with a Memento ink pad. I coloured the images in with ProMarkers. To finish I added Glossy Accents to the toadstall dots, Stickles to the wings and centres of the flowers, and gold Sakura pen to the butterfly. I cut out the fairy and mounted her on red and silver card. I chose red as it brought out the colour of the toadstall.

The flower background paper was stamped with the flower from the Blossom Fairy stamp set. I used a scarlet VersaColour ink pad. I added the butterfly to the panel with foam pads.

I cut a large panel of red card for the background. I punched the edge with Martha Stewarts 3-scallop punch. I threaded white ribbon through the whole and finished it my attaching a bow, tied from the same ribbon, with PVA glue. The greeting was from the same stamp set. I added red Stickles to the hearts. I mounted this onto red and silver card.

I used the flower stamp to stamp white flowers on the red background panel. I used Stampin' Up white Craft ink pad. Once all the panel were attached the the card I added the cut out flowers to finish. These were either attached with double sided tape or foam pads.
