Darling Maisie at Lili's Little Fairies Challenge
A very happy day to everyone!!! I hope you are having a splendid week and that you are having loads of crafting fun!!! Isn't it strange how sometimes we get on a real roll---and at other times we can't have the first creative thought??? Well, let's just hope we all get on that ROLL!!!! smiles!!
This week at Lili's Little Fairies Challenge our theme is LAVENDER and LACE so I hope you will get your little Lilis out and come on over and play along with us! You know there is a delightful prize for some lucky participant!!!!
I made a card and matching mini accordian folder using that darling little LOTV Maisie Two Balloons. For both projects I used Bazzill for the base and all double matting, the DP is from the Wild Rose Studio Lilac Mist Paper Stack, and all background panels are machine stitched. The images were colored with Flexmarkers, Promarkers, and Copics, adding a bit of Prisma Glitter to the hairbows and Glossy Accents to the Balloons.
For the front of the card I used some lovely pre-gathered lace (a gift from my sweet friend Suzan) for the vertical panel. I also used some WOC Lilac Organza Ribbon for the double flat bow and all of the floral treatment is from Wild Orchid Crafts: 1" Open Roses, Hip Rosebuds, Carnations, Heather, and Aster Daisies resting on MS punched branches. The front was finished with several Self-Adhesive Rhinestones to soften the corners.
On the first panel on the inside I used some pink and lavender balloon buttons (sorry the picture does not capture the color correctly) tied with Divine Twine. For the jotting panel I used a MB Diecut with another bow and a few more rhinestones.
To make the little accordian file I used the directions by Maria Bell at the Scor-Pal site. And of course Scor-Tape was a necessity to hold everything together! Before I put the front panel on I used the same lace as the card to edge the panel. I also used the same flowers, diecut, ribbon,and rhinestones as the card.
In this picture of the file opened, you can also see that I edged each of the envelope pockets with an EK Success border punch. AND I did clip that stray thread after the picture was made...hahahah
I hope you like my little creation and will decide to bring your LAVENDER and LACE over to the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge and show us your lovely creations!!!
