Squidgy Castle and Unicorns

birthday-cards-46

Well, I have another of those February birthday cards to share.  I actually made two of these as I have two great-nieces who both turned 3 this month, about 11 days apart, and they both live in Florida!  Word of caution, there are a lot of photos of this card.

I used some new images from Stamping Bella, Squidgy Castle and Set of Unicorns.  They both have matching dies.

I wanted to make a different style card as the castle was a rather large image and would take up the entire front of my regular size cards.  On the Stamping Bella Blog, they have a feature called DT Thursdays where one of the designers shares a project and gives you the step by step instructions (with photos!) on how to create the project.  She had a project several months ago where she featured making a “Z-fold” card.  (Double Z-Fold Card with Sandiebella)  I wanted to try one and thought that the images I choose would be perfect for the card.

I colored all of the images using my Copic markers and then cut them out using the matching dies.  I have listed the colors I used at the bottom of this post.  I did refer to the color maps provided by Elaine Hughes.  There were so many details in the castle that my eyes became a little crossed.  I wasn’t really happy with my coloring, so I added some additional details with my colored pencils.

After attaching all my images, I adhered everything to my card.  I used some sentiments from both the Set of Unicorns and from Simon Says Stamp, It’s No Secret.  I heat embossed both sentiments with some black embossing powder.

I added some Wink of Stella to the Unicorns and then added some Sherbet Shimmer Nuvo Glitter Drops to the card for some additional sparkle.
