Faerie Poppets and Cameo Creations

Good morning everyone

Like I said yesterday, I managed to sneak in a card on Friday.  I have just received a set of Faerie Poppets die cut decoupage and a copy of Tina Fitch's new Cameo Creations cd and was itching to play with both of them.  As time was very limited I decided to try and combine something from both of them into one card.  Here it is

Now I'm not normally a fan of fairies (apart from the original flower fairies) but decided to give these a go and of course, as you can see, my first choice to make a card was a faerie poppet flower fairy!

The card base is made from a piece of cream card I have had in my stash forever, so I have no idea where I originally got it from.  The whole base was cut in one piece using one of the files on Tina's cd.  I have added some gold mirri paper behind the words to make them stand out, and a piece of coloured parchment behind the aperture.  I stuck my fairy onto a circle of gold mirri paper which I had embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder and then added this to the circular centre of the card.  I finished it off with little flowers and leaves cut using a punch and some scraps of vellum and pearlised paper.

I love the effect the light has on the vellum - it almost looks like a window.

Thank you for visiting my blog.
