Olivia's Princess Birthday Card

Good morning friends!

Our Granddaughter turned 3 this month, and I had promised her a Princess card.  She loves anything pink and girlie, so I had lots of fun creating this for her.

The images were stamped onto white card stock, then I added double sided adhesive over that and removed the remaining liner sheet. I poured on the Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polished it in with my fingers. This brings up the shine and ensures that no glitter rubs off. Afterwards, I coloured the images in with Tombow markers and let them dry overnight. Once the images were fussy cut, I was ready to start assembling the card.

I actually printed the words onto white card stock using my computer, then die cut them out with this pretty label shape by Paper Smooches.

Here is the inside, complete with a castle, princess and another unicorn. All sparkly and perfect for our little princess! The clouds were cut using the White Velvet Self-Adhesive Sheets - one of my favourite uses for the white.

Olivia loved her card, and popped it right into her new purse so she could keep it with her.
