Fairy ~ Marigold

Hello bloggers today's card is of a fairy who goes by the name of Marigold.

This card began as a white 8x8 card blank.  First I added a strip of orange vellum to the right hand side of the card.  Next I cut some floral patterned paper to size and added this to cover the rest of the card front.  The topper was stamped onto white card stock using Staz-on ink black and Crafter's Companion ' flower fairies friends marigold' stamp set.  The image was then coloured with ProMarkers and die cut using Spellbinders 'grand labels 11' die set.  Next a mat from black card stock was cut using the next size die in the set.  An orange mat was cut with the next size die.  The mats were added to the topper.  Using some faux stitched ribbon I added a strip down the join of the two papers.  The topper was then adhered over the top.  Using Spellbinders 'eyelet pendants' die set I die cut a piece of orange felt.  The pattern in the center has embossed into the felt.  I then stamped the sentiment 'magic' into the center of the felt die cut using staz-on ink black and the same stamp set.  I then stamped some floral sprigs around the sentiment.  The felt pendant was attached to the card in the bottom corner.  Finally I made a cross over using the same ribbon and adhere it into place. A genuine vintage orange button was then adhered at the cross over point.
