Try It Out Tuesday #12 - An Enchanted Gift Set







Hello Everyone and Happy Tuesday :) It's another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge over at Susana's Store Blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was to create a gift set containing one card and two other gift items. I decided to make a little gift set for my niece.

I decided to use This Castle and Natasha for the main images on my card. I stamped the castle three times for added dimension, colored the images with copics, and adhered them to the image panel with lots of dimensionals (if you would like to see my tutorial on how to create this scene, click HERE). I next created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Pretty in Pink. I layered Perfect Plum on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV's Once Upon a Time stack. I added a pink ribbon, and then I adhered my image panel with dimensionals. I added my sentiment (which is from Studio G) and Primas and pearls.

Next, using a technique I found HERE, I made my bookmark and slid it right under the image panel on the front of the card. I used Mini Natasha as my main image on my bookmark. I colored her with copics and cut her out with my circle Nestabilities. I added purple glitter to her wings using my Sakura glitter pen. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella.

Finally, I made a little boxy bag, which I filled with candy. I again used Mini Natasha as my main image. The sentiment is from a new Studio G set.

What do you think? I hope my niece likes it, I think this would make a darling set for any little princess :) Thanks so much for stopping by. Make sure to check out the Follow Your Heart Blog to see the other amazing creations from the rest of the DT. I'll see you back here tomorrow with another project.

Lots of Hugs, Christine :)
