Cinderella card

I’ve already blogged about my love of Disney movies, so I won’t go on – but for some reason when I was using my new Memory box ‘Great Pumpkin’ die to make some Halloween decorations I just couldn’t shake ‘The Magic Song’ from Disney’s Cinderella from my mind & I was humming it for ages, so I decided to make a card!! 🙂
I probably did this the wrong way around, starting with the die and attempting to choose the colour of the base card afterwards, but as I was already in full Halloween swing it had to be black. I die-cut the Cheery Lynn Designs ‘Fanciful Flourish’ die from dark green card to go with the pumpkin.

Using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in ‘Vintage Photo’ I inked the stalk of the pumpkin, then I drew on the ridges of the pumpkin in Promarkers ‘Orange’. I attached the pumpkin and flourish to the card with SNAIL and then I had to start thinking about glass slippers…

Cinderella’s glass slipper (a bit soft-focus!)

For the glass slippers I found a Clipart image I liked and edited it in Paint to turn it into just outlines in grey, then I printed this onto acetate. I fussy cut the acetate and painted them in Glossy Accents so they were more shapely & you got the impression of layers or outisde/inside of the shoes. This took ages to dry!!! Then when they were dry I attached them on top of the card with more Glossy Accents. Last but not least I added those wonderful words that had been going round in my head the whole time I’d been making the card in silver pen (unfortunately it was only after I’d written them that I found out the correct spelling is “bibbiti-bobbiti-boo” – oh well, you learn something new every day!)

I’m so proud of this card because I think it turned out really well and could be really versatile – either a Disney Princess’ birthday card, or an invite to a Disney-themed party or as a gift card for tickets to the panto!
