Start living the Fairy-Tale!
Did you ever dream of living in a fairy-tale castle like this? Or maybe the Chateau De Brabant was on your wedding venue short list? Ok, so maybe a bit too extravagant – you could have compromised with this beautiful cake by Bakerman Cake Design
I’m hoping we can pass on that dream to the younger ladies in our lives with this new birthday card design and we can re-live that dream while we make the card!
The castle stamp I use to make this card actually comes in sections…so you literally have to build your own castle! The sky’s the limit! Speaking of the sky, have you seen those clouds? They are inked/painted/drawn directly onto the card – so whimsical!
This new design will be part of a four-card kit – you can choose either the Beginner’s Kit or Advanced kit. The castles won’t all be pink – each kit will contain the stamped castles in pink, blue, yellow and green. Each one tones in beautifully with the rainbow clouds. Create four cards in the four colours or mix it up and make your own rainbow castle.
The Advanced Kit
I was very excited when I realised that a bottle of Liquid Pearls fits inside my kit boxes, so the Advanced kit includes your own bottle! It’s what I use to make the little silver bobbles on the castle but has so many other uses- it will be a welcome addition to your craft stash.
My Favourite Design Details
- The curved castle walls – I love this technique of curving the card and adding the foam pads to enhance that life-like curve.
- Those rainbow clouds – made with a beautiful array of inky sponges – each card will have a unique combination of colours.
- The little drops of liquid pearls to add that finishing touch of princess glamour.
So would you make one for your Princess or let her design her own castle?
