Hey friends, it’s Christy here with a vibrant design inspired by some patterned paper. I loved this print so much that I wanted to build an entire card around it. It reminded me of a fairy garden with its colorful mix of florals, strawberries, and ladybugs, so I pulled in images from Fairy Dance, Fairy Garden, and Strawberry Patch. I colored them all to match with my Copic markers and trimmed them out with their coordinating dies.

I knew that I wanted to create an arch with the strawberry and bluebell images, so I decided that an oval was the best shape for my focal panel. I trimmed down a piece of Bristol Smooth Surface Cardstock with the fifth largest of the Nesting Ovals and did a simple watercolor background on it using Salvaged Patina and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped a sentiment down at the bottom in black ink.

I trimmed the patterned paper to fit my A2 standard size card and added a second layer over top running vertically, then popped the focal panel up with foam tape. I adhered the images with liquid glue and gave it some sparkle with a few touches of Stardust Stickles. I also added the seeds back into the strawberries using a white gel pen. If you’d like to see how this card came together, you can click the video thumbnail below or find it HERE on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

I really hope that you enjoy it! Wishing you all a magical day!
