All day to make one card!


All day I've been trying to make this fairly elaborate (for me!) card for an order, it's no easy task with my two little darlings trying my patience!  I finally managed to finish it this evening and I'm quite pleased with it :o)  I've taken lots of pics to try and show the fold properly - the first photo is the front view obviously.


The second pic is of the inside of the card opened out - my customer requested the fairy on the front, but wanted photos inside so I've made this zig zag design.


And this pic is from above, just to try and show the fold - terrible pic really!

The image is from from Stitchy Bear, coloured with promarkers, extra shading added with koh-i-noor pencils and glamour dust for sparkly wings.  The papers are Funky Fairy downloads (shop closed now), printed onto linen card, with black coredinations and pink linen cardstock.  The flowers were punched using x-cut punches, with pearl centres added.  Used my new go-create circle dies - this is the smallest one, they're huge!  Lace from stash, computer generated sentiment, numbers cut with sizzix 'night & day' alphabet.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
