For my card I used Gwendolyn, one of Crissy's exquisitely gorgeous fairy images and I have to say that this one is my fave at the moment! I think the fairies have a very Celtic feel to them and I thought this one would be great for a Celtic inspired St.Patrick's day card for my Mom and Dad! My Dad is from N. Ireland and he will definitely be celebrating on Wednesday! He plans to go into Toronto and meet up with friends...I'm sure he will be frequenting some Irish pubs, smile!
So, I made my cardbase 6x6 from American Crafts embossed Damask cardstock and used BasicGrey Origins 6x6 pp as I thought the patterns had a bit of a Celtic looking pattern and I used a co-ordinating fabric tag that I stamped the sentiment on...this sentiment comes with Gwendolyn.
Gwendolyn and her beautiful horse are stamped on Neenah card and coloured with Copics. I used the "out of the box" technique to cut the image out with my Nesties and left the image in the die and used Distress ink to colour in the background. I also added some sparkle that unfortunately, isn't visible in the pic with a clear Sakura Stardust pen and a Yellow Stardust pen was added to the ribbon around the horse...it looks very sparkly and pretty IRL! I used this gorgeous green basket weave ribbon that ties in nicely with my Celtic inspired card and some green velvet ribbon.
Here is the inside...I printed this on my computer...it says Happy St. Patrick's Day to you in Gaelic! I think my Mom and Dad are really going to like this St. Patrick's day card!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card and remember to leave a comment so that you can be entered into the draw for stamps from the new releases! Now hop on over and visit Krafty Girl Andrea!
