ID: MC Mar16 - Easel Paper Dress - ECD Happy Birthday - Fairy Whispers - Some People card
size: 7"w x 7"h (easel closed)

Created: March 22, 2016

I've been on a roll making these dress type cards... blame it on my quilling friends.

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Happy Birthday" 2pce die), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

I'm also using part of a quote on the front and a quote on the floor stamp  from Quietfire Design  

("Raindrops are Fairy Whispers"); ("Some People Come into Our Life..." companion 2 pce set); ("We Cannot Tell..." 2 pce companion set); Silhouette file ("Butterfly Circle Frame")



Scored and folded my cream toned cardstock to create the easel. Adhered a solid piece to my front. Adhered a piece of fuzzy leaf inclusion mulberry paper edge to edge.

Die cut the borders (Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Gemini series "Ursa") from white cardstock and adhered to the edge of my front piece.

Created the dress using only paper. First dry embossed the dress form using Cuttlebug "Divine Swirls" and sponged with Distress "Antique Linen". Die cut various pearlized, mulberry & chiyogami papers using my new dies from Joanna Sheen (Isobel Lace Border & Harriet Lace Edger). Rolled, glued edges and adhered to form. Added a Sari brown/silver ribbon to the waist and a double fork bow.

I found the dress blended in to the background too much, so added a face to this one using Ching-Chou Kuik's "My Buddy" stamp, fussy cut around it, colored with Prisma colored pencils and added some Stickles dry glitter "Star Dust" on the fairy wings. 

Die cut a bunch of greenery from white cardstock colored with Distress pads. (Cheery Lynn "Pair of Ferns"; Creative Expressions "Maidenhead Ferns"; Memory Box "Fresh Foliage"; Memory Box "Lavish Branch" adding tooled florets of Impression Obsession "die 140-D")

eCut the mushroom cluster (Chocolate Baroque "Autumn Poppy"), stamped using Versafine "Smokey Grey" and colored with Prisma colored pencils.

Stamped the "Fairy Whispers" using Versafine Black Onyx.

Adhered all my greenery and mushrooms to the card and then adhered the fairy dress.

Final touch added tiny amber rhinestones to the center of the little florets.



On the floor: Die cut a piece of Paper Bee "Bogus Sketch Paper" using Elizabeth Craft Design "Stitched Rectangles" largest die. Adhered to floor.

Die cut the "Happy Birthday from Frosted shrink plastic, colored with a deep pink Winsor & Newton Pigment marker, then shrunk.

Die cut the Fancy Tag (Spellbinders) from white cardstock, sponged with some pink and yellow, adhered the shrunken words, 

Positioned the tag and before adhering stamped the "My Friend" using the black, then adhered the tag to floor using 3D foam tape.

Stamped the quote using Distress Picket Fence and embossed with fine white embossing powder.

Added all the left over bits of greenery. Adhered the glittered butterfly (eCut file "Butterfly Circle Frame").
