Morning Crafty friends, Hope you are all well!
Whilst most of you guys are starting to think about getting ready for returning to school, I am only getting round to sharing these cards that I made for Piper’s teachers at the end of term. I decided to skip over the apple themes, mugs and pencils galore, and just give the teachers a gift card so they could treat themselves. But I wanted to make the present special by incorporating the gift card into the design of a handmade card.
For these cards, the Fairy Friends stamps from Lawn Fawn were perfect, and the sentiment ‘thank you fairy much’ worked a treat! Because I knew that I needed to do three cards, I stamped a selection of fairies and flowers off camera and coloured these with my copic markers whilst indulging in a little Netflix action one evening. For the card, I used some dies from Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches, and I also used some stamps from @HoneyBeeStamps on the tag that went inside. Also, I used an alpha stamp set to stamp the word ‘pull’ onto the tab, but unfortunately I don’t know the manufacturer of that stamp set – but if you see it in the video and recognise it, be sure to let me know. 🙂
Here’s a close up of one of the cards!
Orange seemed like a summery colour scheme to go for! I actually don’t use orange very much, and i like to challenge myself every now and again to work outside of the box!
I stamped the bluebell image and then fussy cut the individual flowers to create another style of tulip flower for the background. I actually did this before i realised that there was already a tulip stamp in the set! Silly billy!
For the little fairy at the front in the centre, i created my own wobbler so that she could be ‘flying’ – well, it kinda does look like she is floating above the surface of the card and its nice that she has a little movement. For more details on how i made this, check out the video.
Behind the framed scene, I created a pocket big enough to fit a cute tag where I could attach the gift card, with a little pull tab on the top, where i attached a flying fairy.
Of course I had to get little miss PrincessPi to write the teachers names on the tag! For this side of the tag i used some #honeybeestamps images to embellish it! The heart is from the Beautiful Life stamp set, and the ‘to’, ‘from’ and ‘from my heart to yours’ stamp is from the Special delivery stamp set.
Well, I will leave you guys with the video! enjoy!
