I am excited to share with you my "king" card made into a princess card. It could be made king, prince, queen, or princess. While making this I started to even think of a cute little monster theme. something like the Muppets would have.
All I could think of when I saw this card was pink, blue. As if I could hear the fairies in the Disney movie, Sleeping Beauty fight over the color of the dress. What little princess that you know doesn't love the Disney movies and pretending she is the princess. Grab your cup of tea or coffee and lets look at this wonderful card.
I used American Craft card stock in colors lip-gloss, sky to cut the card out. I used silver glitter paper from Michael's to add the glitz to the card but keep it elegant. This is a small glitter grade and not a large one. I prefer to use something a little less tough on my blades and my machine. I like the weight of this card stock as it is not thick. Glitter is a must on something for a little girl or even a big girl loves glitter. To add this to the card I used Tim Holtz, star dust stickles. I used it around the windows, on the shingles and around the gate or greeting opening.
Looking at the card, I felt that the card needed some texture. I cut a second center castle and using my scissors I cut the portion just below the tower and just above the windows for the smaller towers off. I ran the lower portion through my big shot using Tim Holtz bricked emboss folder. I used the same bricked emboss folder on the castle opening. For the roof of the center tower used Cuttlebug tiny bubbles emboss folder. I adhered each piece with kool tak clear 3D foam adhesives.
On the vellum window I wanted to continue the pink, blue theme and made half of the window pink and half blue. To achieve this I used Tim Holtz distress inks colors, pickled raspberry and salty ocean. I blended the pink first and then the blue. You can add more to each color blending to the middle to get a more vibrant look.
I made the gate white and added lines to it using my Martha Stewart score board. To give the "boards" some depth I used my Copic marker C3. There was never any question about using rhinestones, this was also a must for me as I thought about the jewels that go with being a princess. Stamp or write a greeting under the gate and you have a wonderful card that will make any princess happy.
As I put this card together I was extremely impressed with the design aspect of it and yet it is so easy and fast to put together. As with any project the tough part is choosing the papers. I look forward to seeing your rendition of this amazing and yet simple card. Thank you for stopping by and reading my blog. I hope you enjoyed my princess card and may all your dreams come true! Happy Craftin' Y'all!
