Princess Birthday

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

We are still featuring cards using the new Magical Fantasy release.  If you haven't seen the Magical Fantasy release yet, you have to drop by the online store and check it out. These new dies are all so cute and whimsical. There are 27 new designs, and I am in love with everyone of them. They are currently on a Memorial Day sale at 25% off.

Today, I am featuring the new Fairytale Castle + Little Princess & Roses dies to create a birthday card for a little girl. The princess theme is so popular with little girls, and I have plenty of friends with little girls and friends with granddaughters. I used a inlay technique for this card. So let's get started with some details on how I created it. 

Step 1: I selected some patterned paper that had a cloud like background. I used a white card base to keep it neutral since its going to a little girl.
card base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
designer paper layer: 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

I used the 2nd largest stitched circle die (3 3/8") to cut my circle in the designer paper.
I built my castle on the die cut circle. Used the colors on the packaging because they were perfect for this card. 
Stamped the birthday sentiment in grape ink. I knew I was going to angle the Princess sentiment so the card corner was the best spot.
I decided at this point to start some card assembly. I used a double layer of mounting tape on the back of the image panel. I wanted it to be raised up enough so the castle image would sit flat against the card base. 

I cut the Princess phrase in pink cardstock using the Little Princess & Roses die. I cut 2 phrases to make it stand out more on the designer paper. 
I adhered this to image panel with Ranger multi matte medium. I also used the crown that is part of the Princess die. The Princess wand is from the Once Upon a Time Die. 
Well that's it for me for this Saturday. I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend and that there are some fun plans in your schedule. See you next time!
