Card Keepers at Scrapware

Hi Everyone, I hope you are having a gorgeous weekend, I have been helping my hubby put up posts and beams so i am not having the best weekend ever LOL but hey we are making progress on our house, so that's gotta to be good right??
Any way yesterday i got a package from Miss Boss lady with my cardkeeper in there and lots of other yummy new products, wow you should see them GORGEOUS..
In my parcel there were three other pieces  that i loved straight away and as soon as i saw them i knew exactly what my card keeper was going to be transformed into, I have decided not to keep cards in here because i have something very special which my girls really truly believe in!! I think that it is a really special magical memory for them. This little card keeper is going to store all of my girls letters from their fairies. yep we have a fairy garden out the front and the girls receive little letter's every now and then, these letters come from the queen of fairy land, her name is Millicent,she talks of lots of adventures that the fairy's take and also what they have been doing of late, they also answer my girls letters too which is very exciting for them, Occasionally Millicent has to go and visit other fairy friends so that means other fairy's may write to my girls and tell their stories too.

Last night i got to work on my fairy keeper and this is what i ended up with
I covered my arched window card keeper CK03 in the ever pretty Pink Paislee paper , i hand cut the flowers and using a craft knife i cut out parts of the flower petals so that my petals can stand up and have a little height and dimension.
I cut out the window shapes and glued the paper in place, turned the front over and attached this gorgeous heavy lace using a hot glue gun, I then placed a light yellow paper behind that so we can see the yellow through the lace
I apologise in advance for the dodgy pictures It's not the best lighting here today

Fairy: CH445 Fairy 1 Flourish Wings
 The fairy has been coated with a shimmer paint and then i have embossed her with an embossing powder called poly sparkle, she has then been given silver wings and her wings have also been embossed, her wand has the same colours.

Don't you just love the little fairy door down the bottom, firstly i gave this a little shimmer with some purple pearls and then used the poly sparkle embossing powder again for a little bit of shine, which you can't see on the photo :( it does look very pretty in real life) ..
 Door: CH442 Toadstool House

 For the back i have used CH06 Chipboard Flower Swirls and have painted it a pretty yellow and randomly sprinkled silver glitter to finish it off. I have placed a cream pearl in the centre of the flower .

So there we have it one fairy letter keeper for my girls, they love it and have written a letter today for their fairies to read it is sitting in the garden awaiting a reply :) I think that the fairy's are a bit busy, as there is no reply yet !!
Happy scrapping

  1. Oh how cute your girls writing letters to the fairies ... beautiful keepsake for them to look at in later years ... love the lace behind the window and the effect of the mediums you have used.
