My best friend's birthday is in a couple of weeks, and one of the sentiments from today's set, Fairies, expresses my feelings for her. We have been best friends for around 35 years, and we now share this addictive hobby of stamping. I am giving her this card for her birthday. I've put a birthday greeting on the inside. The smaller mushrooms are images from this set; I made the larger mushrooms, using both circle and oval Nestabilities, some patterned paper, a pair of scissors, a marker, and a little imagination.
Here is the inside of my card in which I used one of the silhouetted fairies. The sentiment is from the MFP Birthday mini set.
I used the Square Flip-Its Framelits dies today, as well as some pretty paper from Prima. I stamped and cut out the mushrooms, then colored them with Copics. Then I stamped the fairy silhouette on the DP as well as on the mushrooms, and lined up the cut-out mushrooms over the DP. This way there's no break in the ink as probably would have happened had I just glued on the mushrooms and then stamped the fairy.
On the inside I stamped the other silhouette and then added the birthday sentiment (from MFP Glad Glads) and the flourish.
Be sure to check out the "fairy" nice creations made by the rest of the design team. Remember to comment often so that you'll be in the running for a free stamp set.
