Clipart Fairy Snoozeville

Today I have two Snoozeville cards to show you, one is the ready to print kit, which works exactly as it says on the packet LOL!, you just print and put it together, adding you own stamp to the card with your embellishments, the second uses the interactive version. With the interactive version you get the same parts as the printable, plus 30 papers, and it's interactive because using your graphics programme you can change the size of all or any of the parts.

I have some friends who don't feel confident in their card designing abilities and don't have or know how to use graphics programmes, so they really love the printables, not only is the design done for you but they are quick and easy to make up and I always think it is handy to have some in, (even if you design your own cards), in case you need a card in a hurry.
The Snoozeville Large Frame printable kit costs 80p for which you get -  pdf and jpeg versions of the card base, topper and decoupage, and matching inserts (one editable to add your own wording and one containing wording) the finished card measures approximately 21 x 18cms so it's a good size.

I used gold glitter around the card base and oval, attached a couple of eyelets either side of the oval, threaded through and tied green and yellow string from MeiFlower, and added a couple of die cut shapes (spellbinders Ironworks Motifs) to the bottom corners.
The insert reads "but some habits are just too hard to break!"

On the other hand if you prefer to design your own card layouts then The Snoozeville kit is for you, it costs £2.65 and contains 30 Jpeg 12 x 12 papers; 1 frame with a transparent centre (so you can add things behind it) 1 frame with a white centre (so you can add things on it)  the word arts, The Snoozing Man Super Frame, this Super Frame can be re-sized to whatever you want and the decoupage bits will always fit. Please note the snoozing man only comes to you inside the frame. PNG card base; 3 PNG inserts including 1 with an image, 1 with a blank oval & 1 plain, so plenty of choices when designing your card.

I re-sized the card base to fill an A4 sheet and used it as a portrait card, I sized the oval frame topper to fit my card front, chose the blank oval which I made smaller and then added the appropriate word art to each. I also printed out a couple of the papers from the kit, which I used to decorate the front of the card base, I added Grosgrain ribbon from MeiFlower, around the strip of card before attaching to the card with foam pads. Both ovals were glittered and then I added brads (from Stash) and metallic brown string also from MeiFlower, to the smaller oval and a large brad to the main oval which I used to hold the hanging sentiment panel in place. The large oval was fixed to the card with foam pads, the smaller hangs free.

I personally like to print a design onto the reverse of my card, to give the inside some interest, I also used matching papers to make up a message panel.

So there you have it Ready to Print or Interactive, what's your preference?

Hi Colette, love this card, it is so difficult to find suitable cards for males, especially re: embellishments but you have done a grand job with these. The Clipart Fairy image and papers are fabulous and I love the Hanging Sentiment - it is just perfect!
