Hunkdory Fairy Card

I bought this Hunkydory fairy image yesterday.  Have mounted it on a Craftwork Cards frame  and added spots of Diamond Dust to the image.   I then stuck some pink spotted paper on to some card and cut out a number 8 using some templates I have  (the spotty paper was a freebie with a craft mag).  Edged the 8 with matching promarker, double embossed it and added some spots of Diamond Dust, and mounted it on clear pads.

The front of the card has been scored with parallel lines on my new Hougie score board, although the photo doesn't show the scoring that well.


The card was then mounted on to more of the same burgundy card and turned into an easel card.  Sentiment from the image sheet, some paper lace, flowers (both from Joanna Sheen) and card candy (Craftwork Cards) added and Ellie cut using cuttlebug, pink foam and Go Kreate's Rome Alphabet.  I scored a couple more lines either side of the paper lace.  (I am liking this new board!).  Finally a small pink jewel added for the stop for the easel.

I then added an insert.  I do find easel cards can be difficult to find somewhere to add a message, so the way I have created the card enables you to put in an insert.   This one was from Joanna Sheen's in Other Words cd.  I liked the sentiment so much, that rather than use the interactive version, I copied the insert into Publisher and added my own greeting to it as well.
