Fairy Tale Wishes

Hi!  It's Jeanne sharing my card today.  I love the Wedding Horse & Carriage and Wedding Chapel dies - they remind me of Cinderella! So I wanted to create a birthday card for a girl who loves fairy tales or could be used as a wedding card (just change the "wish" to "celebrate"!)

I cut the cardstock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 and scored it at the 4 1/4 mark to make a top folding A2 card.  All pieces except the word "Wish" are cut from the same vanilla cardstock.

The die cut images are colored with Copic markers.  (You'll see double in some of my pictures because I often make two of the same card at one time!) I used several shades of brown for the horse and cool greys to shade the carriage and wheels.

The chapel was colored with two shades of very light beige and warm greys for the roof. The rose was colored in the same manner using pinks and greens.
To create the horizon line in the background I cut a free form mask using scissors. Then I used a sponge to create the grass and sky.  The white panel is slightly smaller than the front of the card.
I cut another panel out of vanilla cardstock the same size as the card front.  From this I cut an oval using the largest oval die from Basics Oval Set.  I decided to emboss the front to give it some additional interest.
 I played around with the arrangement within the frame and decided to have the steeple of the chapel outside the frame.
The last things added were the word "Wish" and the rose.  I did need to trim one set of leaves off the rose to fit the space.  I also added rhinestones to the center of the wheels.

I hope I've inspired you to be creative!  See you next week.

What a delightful card, Jeanne! I like that the steeple is outside the circle; it balances out the rose on the opposite corner.

Love how you shaded the chapel and the sparkling sentiment is just perfect for this fairy tale scene!
