Snuggle Little Fairy

Today I am sharing a card I made from a cd by Creative Crafting which was previously known as Cupcake Crafting.
Its called At the bottom of the garden
Have to say the artwork is lovely and as you can imagine the designs are mostly fairy based.
So when you select the design you get lots of options like toppers, decoupage, digi stamps etc or as I chose this time a plate design
I simply printed off the 2 sheets and stuck one sheet to white card using Crafters Companion Stick & Stay then started cutting it all out
When I came to the back plate I realised my error – it had printed with ADD YOUR OWN TEXT HERE
Had I looked it this properly before printing out and before sticking it to card and before cutting out all the small bits I could have removed that text and either added something that would be printed on or just print the blank and stamps something
So I had to improvise – I traced the star shape and transferred the shape to white card, cut it out, stamped All Girls Are Princesses and a crown using stamps by Debbi Moore, then stuck the panel over the original – sorted!!!
All the decoupage was lightly shaped and added to the design.
The stand was perfect – I will use that in future for my bookatrix type cards – it doesn't matter that it is patterned because I can cover it up or just draw round it onto my chosen card.
This is such an easy card to make – only downside I can see is the excessive amount of flowers and leaves – I left 6 flowers and 4 leaves on the sheet as I already had more than I had space for.
And on a positive side it folds flat for posting – I used very thin sticky pads so if this was put into an A5 sized envelope it would go on a normal stamp!
Would love to know what you think to the card!!!
For the to use or to sell box
See you next time
