Cinderella

Hello again.

My card today is inspired by the photo challenge over at Our Creative Corner.



I've made an easel card using Stardream cardstock. I trimmed the top edge with a Martha Stewart punch for crown effect. Wrapped the CS with a sparkly gold 'mesh' from a local fabric shop - it reminds me of chain mail worn as armor in medieval times. I stamped the beautiful Stampington image (Apron - 57342) on tissue paper, fussy cut it and glued to doily. Also stamped the lovely 'Feathered Swirl' (La Blanche 1252) and 'Cinderella' (Impression Obsession D6543). All images stamped with Delicata Golden Glitz and embossed with Stamp n Stuff Jewelled Gold. I propped the Cinderalla script as a mini easel. Added roses, bow and charms to complete.

Thats it! Not too sure about the whole 'Prince Charming' thing though!

Enjoy the rest of your day.

I'm entering card to the following challenges;
Our Creative Corner - Let's Be Royal
Crafty Ann's Challenge - 'Film Title' - 'The Slipper & The Rose' film
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Easel Card
Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenge - Anything Goes

  2. What a clever idea stamping on to the tissue and laying it over the doily, it's all very effective.

    Thanks so much for joining our first challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges.

  5. Hi PP...I think my favourite bit is the saying! It made me smile. I get the royal feel looking at this card and the MS crown edge across the top looks brilliant.

  10. Where do I begin Nicola??? Your little yellow roses, the embossing, the gorgeous dress centered on the doily, the flourishes, the AWESOME sentiment, the charm shoe, it's all so very regal and depicts the challenge wonderfully!
    Beautiful work on your interpretation. :)

  12. Oh, what an awesome challenge piece for the Let's Be Royal challenge at Our Creative Corner! LOVE the glittery embossing on the doily and I have to agree with Sharon that that is a wonderful stamp! And how clever to add the clock, tick tock, it's almost midnight Cinderella! So great to have you joining in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner, Nicola!

    Hugs,
    Linda
