This card is really all about this horse and carriage die. When I first saw it, I knew I just had to have it – I think it’s perfect for a little girl! Knowing that a particular little girl loved princesses and the color pink, this card was pretty much a no-brainer.
I did have to make it larger than the usual A2 card, in order fit the full image. Usually I stick to A2’s (5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″… or exactly half the size of a standard 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper), but I keep a handful of cards in different sizes to use as templates. Ever get those “free” blank gift cards in the mail? I get quite a few of them from various “save the animals” charities. (I have trouble saying no to anyone helping little fur-balls.) When I get one in an unusual size, I save it and its matching envelope. I just carefully pull the envelope apart and then I have the perfect template for future use. 🙂
I cut the wheels for the carriage out of glitter cardstock, and added some clear Wink of Stella to the top of the carriage. A die-cut flower and sentiment, and just a few drops of Liquid Pearls, and it was done.
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
