Hello, today's card is a fantasy card of a fairy named Ruby.
This card began with a shop brought 8x8 white card blank. From some textured silver holographic card stock I cut a mat smaller than the card base and adhered it to the card blank. Next from Fairy Gemstones CD I printed out a backing sheet and a topper sheet. Using Spellbinders Labels 1 die I die cut the toppers and sentiment. From silver holographic mirror board I die cut a mat for each topper and sentiment using the labels 1 die. I adhered the toppers to the silver mats. Next I cut down the backing paper from the CD to make a mat and adhered it to the silver mat. The toppers were adhered to the card bottom left and top right. Using Spellbinders Asian Accents die I cut two corners out of the silver mirror board. Through the corners I threaded some red bakers twine, this part was a bit tricky so I ended up threading part of it and then adhering the corners down and then finished of threading it whilst they were attached to the card. In the centre I knotted the twine and wrapped it round all the strands to pull it together in the middle. Finally I attached the sentiment topper over the knot using foam pads.
I hope you enjoyed this card the photograph really doesn't do it justice as it looks better in real life.
I am entering this card in to the following challenge
