Princess Birthday

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this Memorial Day weekend 2019.
It's another sunny and warm day here in Pittsburgh. Such a perfect start to the summer season. We don't have any particular plans for the weekend because I will be getting my Preschool projects ready for next week.
We have 3 weeks of summer camp once our regular school year ends each with a different theme. This coming week it's Lego week. I found plenty of ideas on Pinterest and now I have to bring them to life. It will be a fun week for the kids.
Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.
Today, I am featuring the new Fairytale Castle + Little Princess & Roses dies to create a birthday card for a little girl. The princess theme is so popular with little girls, and I have plenty of friends with little girls and friends with granddaughters. I used a inlay technique for this card. So let's get started with some details on how I created it. 
I selected some patterned paper that had a cloud like background. I used a white card base to keep it neutral since its going to a little girl. Used a 3 3/8" circle die to cut the circle in my designer paper.
 I built my castle on the die cut circle. Used the colors on the packaging because they were perfect for this card.
Stamped the birthday sentiment in grape ink. I knew I was going to angle the Princess sentiment so the card corner was the best spot.
I decided at this point to start some card assembly. I used a double layer of mounting tape on the back of the image panel. I wanted it to be raised up enough so the castle image would sit flat against the card base. 

 I cut the Princess phrase in pink cardstock using the Little Princess & Roses die. I cut 2 phrases to make it stand out more on the designer paper.
 I adhered this to image panel with Ranger multi matte medium. I also used the crown that is part of the Princess die. The Princess wand is from the Once Upon a Time Die.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
