I knew I wanted to make something a bit different and found it on Debbie Dolphins blog - A flip flap card or whatever its called lol! Here's Debbie's Card.
Next I went searching for the right text stamps and found them at Stamping All Day I've used 3 from there - Fairy Princess, May your dreams come true and Princess circle. I think these go really well with the Magnolia fairytales.
I'll try and explain as I go along how I've made it! I started with 3 cards size 5 1/2" by 5" and used stampin up whisper white cardstock as its quite thin (HIGHLY RECOMMEND for Promarkers!) so wont be as bulky when I start putting the layers on. Two of the cards I cut one side in half and glued these to the base card. Ive decorated completely with a new Stampin Up set called Cottage Wall. I was round Helen's the other day and asked if she had any nice, pretty, princessy papers and she brought out this new set which is one of the new colour ranges, I was actually thinking of doing this card in pink but I really like how these papers work together.
I've coloured Tilda with promarkers in pale lilacs (using the blender) and maroon & burgundy and added glamour dust with a glue pen to the gloves, underskirt & waistband. The crown I stamped with stazon onto holographic silver paper and paper pieced it and added sticky gems. The shoes I've given a coat of aileens paper glaze so they're shiny like patent leather.
With Tilda I learnt a new trick to place the image outside of the frame. A lady did email me a while ago with destuctions but I couldnt twig how to do it. I finally saw a video on you tube and as I'm a visual learner I clicked straightaway how its done - The video is here.
I've used Nesties labels 4 and edged that with victorian velvet distress ink.
Flowers are all from hobbycraft and the leaf is a woodware punch (grass) I've given all of it a spray of glimmer mist (pearl) so its got a subtle sparkle.
On the inside I've repeated the Tilda and punched it out with a circle scallop punch, the reverse of that I've put the Princess circle stamp and paper pieced the crown with the silver holographic paper. I've made another circle to match the front and used some lace to make a border and added a picture of my little Princess, stamped some number 2's and the may all your dreams come true. On the other side of the flap I've put Molly in sticky letters and covered with silver holographic glitter.
The borders down the middle of the front and on the edge of the flaps is a martha stewart doily lace punch.
This card took almost 2 days to make, well inbetween the kids and whatnot but it was a looooong time but my princess is worth it :D
