A Fairyopolis weekend

My mom recently had a birthday (the 10th to be exact), and I made this card for her (and thankfully can share it as I was finally able to present it to her yesterday...I made her a delicious birthday lasagna followed by chocolate truffle cake. YUM.) The Fairyopolis Complete Cardmaking Kit makes it all possible, and in a matter of minutes, too!

I started by decoupaging the lovely fairy, and the kit makes it super easy to achieve this layered beauty...that and the Collal decoupage glue. Perfect for making dimension and keeping everything where it is intended to be! While she was drying, I selected one of the card bases contained in the kit and chose some border stickers, one of which I covered in Stickles. I felt it was missing something still, so I cut the circle from another card base. Perfect! (All except for my cutting skills...that's ok, Stickles to the rescue, hiding my mistakes.) Some rub ons seemed like a good addition, and a pretty Stickle heart.
I used the stylus contained in my Ultimate Tool to curl the banner the fairy is "holding", attaching it with more Collal glue...and adding more stickles! The sentiment is a rub on from the kit. See, it really is the COMPLETE cardmaking kit! Of coures, I had to add some sparkle to those fairy wings, too!

That's about it for today...unfortunately, I can't craft at ALL. Between a bridal shower and a housewarming party, I'm being pulled in too many directions for crafting. Watch for a post tomorrow, though, showing off not only the card I made for the new bride, but a picture of my CANDY! Yay!!! It will be a mystery no more :)

Have you entered the current challenge over at the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog? You should! Always great prizes to play for each month :)

Hope you all have a great day!

Great card! Love the twinkling fairy wings- I have so many bottles of stickles and I rarely ever use them- time to break them out I think! I'm about to go on a 2 week trip - again- it's crazy but it was a last minute thing and we are simply too bored at home to pass that up. Take lots of pictures in those family gatherings!
