Fairy Dust … and it actually works!

I totally adored making this little card and had such a lot of fun making it.   It was something I’d wanted to make in order to send to one of the younger members of my family (a 6-year-old little girl) as a surprise through the post.  She’s completely dotty about Fairies, bless her heart.

A handful of Fairy Dust was carefully decanted into a teeny tiny glass bottle.  I popped in the cork,  added a label and then tied it up with ribbon.

The picture for the front was printed out onto cardstock. Thick enough to take the dark colours but still thin enough to cut and hold the curl, where the bottle of Fairy Dust bursts through the page.   I measured and cut the picture and curled back the centre sections, then I stuck the picture to the card which I’d already cut and made to size, and already done and decorated the inside.

Once the bottle of magical Fairy Dust was tied onto the card …. ‘Voila’!  – one magical, very special, Fairy Dust card.

Just to accent the card and give it a bit of a magical twinkle, I used a very fine nib glue pen and sprinkled a little glitter dust in all the right places.

My six years old relative totally loved the card,  and I loved the way it turned out!

Author: The Art of Cobwebs - aka:- thecobweboriumemporium

Hello. I'm 'Cobwebs'. I live in a wee little cottage in the South of England, aptly called Cobweb Cottage. This little dwelling really is a cobweb factory. Not inside (well, occasionally) - but outside - flipping heck! This information should give you a clue as to why my blog is called The Art of Cobwebs aka: The Cobweborium Emporium. I've been arty and crafty from a very young age, and although my crafts have sometimes turned a corner and taken me in another direction, I've always crafted in some way, shape or form. One day, in the blink of an eye, life changed somewhat for me and the consequences were many. I had to find a new way of being 'artistic'. Card making; scrap-booking; producing ATC's and ACEO's; needle felting; Polymer clay; painting- but in a more relaxed style than I had before, and sewing, - are all things which I visit, as and when life allows. I've fairy recently become a Textile Artist and am enjoying this new creative outlet very much as it offers me so much scope for letting my imagination run through a grassy field and feel the wind in my hair - (mentally, of course). I love to create. To make things. I truthfully believe that the best gifts in the world are those in which you've given your time, rather than your cash. Thank you so much for visiting. Please visit my blog (link below) and have a look around. I'm sure you'll find something to enjoy, even if it's only a handful of jokes! (yes, seriously - there really are jokes!) Wishing you a truly blessed rest of your day! ~ Cobs. <3
