.... there was a beautiful princess, who lived in a sweet little castle.
When I saw this castle in the Princess Rosey digi stamp set at the Clipart Fairy store I knew it would be perfect for a side stepper card. I paper pieced most of the castle using papers from the Ice Queen Papers set, just colouring in the swags and roses. I layered up the front section and the roof of the castle. The princess sign comes in the digi stamp set and I used another of the ice queen papers on that. There is a princess that comes in the set too, but I also had the Princess Heart set, which are ready coloured so decided to use one of them. I printed out a plain lemon paper from the Beautiful baby boy set and one of the ice queen papers to use as backing papers. I embossed the lemon paper with the Craft Too daisies embossing folder and glamour dusted the pattern on the lilac ice queen paper. I made the happy birthday panel myself with paper from the same set. I mounted all my pieces, added tiny nail art crystals to the crown, silver glitter to the word princess, a few crystals on the happy birthday panel and some gold glitter and glamour dust to the princess. As usual with this type of card I added a gusset to stop the card from splaying open and placed the message panel on the back.
I have turned this card into a kit which is available to buy from the Clipart Fairy's Printables store
