Evie's Three

This is a card I made for a friend's grand-daughter and has Whispy, my favourite Saturated Canary image from Krista Smith on it.  Whispy was coloured using Promarkers in various shades of jade and sparkle was added to her wings skirt and leg warmers using a stencil cut from another print out of the image and Crafter's Companion spray glitter.  Spellbinders grand rectangle dies were used to cut a frame for Whispy.

The patterned backing papers and card used were from Nitwit Collections Snow Princess solids, Seraphina and Friends backing papers cd and Kanban card.  These layers were cut using Sue Wilson Noble square dies and Spellbinders grand rectangle dies.  Stitching was added to the Sue Wilson die cuts.

To personalise the card for Evie bunting was cut and layered using a La-La Land Die die which also cut out hearts from the centre of each flag.  Letters and numbers were added to the bunting to spell out Evie's name and age.  A Stampin' up punch was used to add layered flags at the other side of the image and a peel off Happy Birthday sentiment was added.

Extra embellishments added to the card were silver brads, jade satin ribbon, a bow coloured to match using a Promarker pen, crystal sticker dots, waste hearts from the die cut bunting and silver corners with sparkly gems which I found in our local Home Bargain shop amongst their bridal decorations section.  The corners were threaded together on a card but cut off individually they make nice embellishments.
