Melissa's Fairy Tale Card

So I wanted to show some new products that Cutters Creek now has and what better way than making a card!  I started with the Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime Paper.  I have never used their paper before and  I can honestly say I cannot wait to buy more!  This card was a learning curve for me and I loved it!!

I have a tendency to lean towards mythical in stamps and papers and this just fell right into my element.  I loved the fairy and butterfly theme in this collection and was trying to find the perfect stamp set to complement it.  I came across a new stamp set from In Style Stamps; Fairy Tales.  Perfect!  There is an image of Thumbelina that would work perfectly with the fairy theme.

I wanted to make the wings pop from the paper and also just add a shimmer effect to the stamped image but I wanted something more popping than the subtlety of Spicas; Stickels!  They were the product of the month for February and I have never used them before.  I really like how it gave the fairy wings a realistic look and added a fantastic feel to the Thumbelina image.

I love how I was able to blend the Graphic 45 paper with some from my stash for the inside of the card.

Let me know what you think!!
