SNS DT Monday challenge #10


This week the wonderful SNS Design Team challenge is to make a card with a Cinderella theme. I chose to use my CB Cinderella embossing folder as a Valentine for my 6 yr. old granddaughter. The entire family are Disney lovers, so this fits right in. I learned a few lessons in making the card. First is that when I used a VersaMark pen on the edging and added Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heat gun, I didn't get the effect I was looking for. So I then went over it all with 2-way glue and sprinkled SU blue glitter all over it. This worked better, but I still don't like the look the VersaMark pen left...next time. My cs is SU Bashfull Blue also the ink for the lettering. The birds are Brocade Blue. I used SNS sets for the words and birds: Special Women, Love Blooms and Winter Fun w/ Gretchen and Sam. I know Ellie will like it even though it isn't pink!
