Believe in Fairy Tales

Hi everyone and Happy Monday :) I hope you all are having a wonderful day and had a wonderful weekend. It was a nice restful weekend here and I got lots of time in the craft room so I can't complain :)



For my project today, I decided to ink up this adorable Lady Tilda from the Fairy Tales collection, available at Magnolialicious (link on my sidebar). I decided to create a card and a castle goodie box to go with it. I first created my card. I colored the image with copics (dress: V01, V12, V15, V17; skin: E00, E11, E13, RV21; hair: E33, E35, E37) and then cut the image out and added Stardust Stickles to her headband. Next I cut my ovals out using my oval nesties and ran the top oval through my cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then created my card base out of SU cardstock. The DP is from MME. I added the ovals and Tilda with dimensionals and then added a bow, pearls, Primas, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches.




Next I created my little castle box using my Cricut (the box base was cut out by me but the castle was cut out using the Once Upon a Princess cricut cartridge. I cut the castle out twice (one for each side of the box) at 3 and a half inches. I adhered the pieces of the castle together with lots of dimensionals. I added a little treat bag inside the box as a little gift. What do you think?




Well, that's it from me today, I must run to work. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a great princess set. Love that 3D castle to match this sweet Tilda card. Funny that I have the same cartridge set, but I haven't open it yet and it was bought over a year. Now I know which will be my next project to try. Thanks for the inspiration :o)
Hugs,
Cabio
