When I asked my granddaughter what she wanted on her cake for this birthday - she replied "Three Musketeers" - fine I thought - Google for some inspiration. The other day I sat and prepared the idea for a card, using the Disney Three Musketeers, and was really quite pleased with the ideas I came up with for a cake and a card. HOWEVER .... last night I discovered that she wanted Barbie Three Musketeers !!!!! Oh heck! mega rethink - and googling wasn't a lot of help. I eventually found an image of Princess Corrinne, and with my lateral thinking head on - grabbed my Debbi Moore Masks cd. This is the result:
Card is Papermania Shimmer Textured cardstock, with some of the same in a different shade for the matting and layering of the main image which I produced in Publisher. Princess Corrine is decoupaged, and the flowers use the same main colour cardstock, cutout with cuttlebug and a Marianne die. Gems added to flowers and Princess Corrine's dress, which has also had glitter added.
The insert was a backing paper from JS Enchanted Dreams, and I made a pop-up mask from Debbi Moore's Venetian Masks, printed on to the same cardstock as main card, and added a few gems and glitter. (The mask idea came from reading up about Barbie Musketeers and the fact her and her pals wore masks). Hopefully it looks a bit like the mask that Princess Corrinne is wearing in the image on the front of the card - she is wearing it like a tiara in that image!)
Hopefully a 5 year old will love it. Now to set to work on the cake ......... (watch this space, later this week)
