Fabulous fairy fun card

Hi folks! Here's another card I made using my Enchanted Forest Joanna Sheen stamps. This time I used the larger fairy from all three sets and an unusual card fold. Now the way I created the base was to make two diamond top cards,(tutorial here by Jilly) lay them down, overlap them and glue them together. I then added the extra panel for the fairy at the top and held it in place using the eyelets. Alternatively I have just found this great tutorial, by Meredith, which shows the whole card made as one, with some great flaps added to the front.
Once the base of the card is completed this is a fairly simple card to put together. I just stamped, coloured (using Promarkers and Copics), cut out and glittered the fairies. I used some DCWV glittered floral background paper. I stamped and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and just mat & layered it up.

I used green eyelets to thread some ribbon through and tied them into big bows.
This turned out to be quite a large card, for me. My photography leaves a lot to be desired as I can never quite capture the shimmer and glitter on it. Ah well, I shall just have to leave that to your imagination.
Have a great weekend.
Ciao for now!
