Birthday Card

I was trying to think of something a bit different as a birthday card for a great niece who is six, mainly because I have no idea what sort of things she likes.  I just hope she is aware of the Roald Dahl books because I decided to make a card based on James and the Giant Peach, printing all the separate elements using Craft Artist before assembling them in the usual way.  I've made a personalised insert with some faded out images on the same theme.

Pixie Snippets Challenge 191

I've managed to make a card for the Pixie Snippets challenge this week and apart from the background everything else was made using snippets from the bits boxes.  The background was Centura Pearl card embossed using a lovely folder which was actually a freebie (again) which came with two sentiment stamps as well - couldn't resist!!  After embossing I rubbed some amethyst gilding wax over to bring out the design, then simply die cut the rest of the elements and stamped one of the free sentiment stamps.

Background - free embossing folder with amethyst gilding wax
Sentiment - stamp which came with free folder
Shaped layers - Sue Wilson Greek Island dies
Flowers - Britannia flower dies
Leaves - Crealies die
