Card Design: Adorable Fairies #1 from Nicecrane Designs

http://nicecranedesigns.com/
Hello everyone!

Remember all those thank you cards that I had to make for my sister and brother in laws for their generous gift of money that they gave to us for our 25th wedding anniversary?  Well, I am still working on it.  Here is another one that has already been added to the pot but I'm just getting around to the post now.  I've got another one from this image collection that I'll be showing next week as well.  

This time around I've used an adorable fairy from the aptly named Adorable Faires collage sheet from Nicecrane Designs.  The images in this set are beautiful and when I get a chance I'm going to make some journal cards with them as well since the images are okay to use for commercial use.


For now though they were perfect for this thank you card.  The images are so beautiful that I wanted to keep the layout really simple and keep the fairy the focus.   
  
FRONT
Digital Image Details: 
  • Adorable Faires CS For this first card I used the image you see on the top right.  These little fairies are just so precious and would be great on a variety of cards.  I cropped off the writing that appears on the bottom of the image to make it suitable for this card.  Click on the name or the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.

Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • I added the text layer directly onto the image before printing.

INSIDE
Digital Sentiment Details:
  • Created by me.
Digital Paper Products:
  • The digital paper on the inside is one I created, matching the colour to compliment colours from the front of the card.
 
OVERALL
Paper Products:
 
  • Card base and matting behind sentiment: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, Passion Fruit collection.
  • Image and digital paper base: white photocopy paper.
  • Sentiment bases:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
 Challenges I am hoping to enter...
