Fairy Cards, Toadstools, and Weekend Crafting Time

A pair of Fairy cards with Rinea Foiled Paper and plenty of toadstools occupied my weekend crafting time. I’ve been salivating over Graphic 45’s Fairie Dust collection while I waited for my paper pack to arrive. It came in last week and I spent spare moments fussy cutting to prep for a creative Saturday.

First up is a Fairie Queen, chatting with butterflies in her garden. This fussy-cut beauty has a crown and armband enhanced with copper Stickles. The butterflies are heat embossed and embellished with Stickles.

The inner frame is cut from Rinea Jade/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. I overlaid it with toadstools attached with foam tape for depth. The paper details are inked on the edges.
Rinea Jade/GoldGlossy Foiled Paper embossed with a butterfly folder from Darice sets the stage for the second card. The foiled paper is matted with a rectangle of Violet Vale. These papers are centered on a 4x6, cream card blank.
A trio of toadstools grace the bottom border while foam tape helps the center medallion pop. A pair of fairies are tucked behind and dots of copper Stickles pick out the details. The layered butterfly stickers are a gift from my Australian pen pal.
For the first card I used a Sketchy Saturday prompt. There is plenty of time to play along at Laurel Seabrook Designs. Here is a peek at that sketch.
