Too Busy!

I had so much going on last weekend that I didn't get time to do any Clipart Fairy cards, I have managed to catch up a bit and have a couple for you today, using some of her new Double Up kits, one a Ready to print version, which I have made up more or less exactly as the instructions included with the download say, (very easy to follow instructions with photos). My second uses one of the interactive versions and from the parts included I have made up a card of my own design.

Double-ups have a scalloped oval shaped front and then on the back there is rectangular card, which opens up to hold an insert and space to write your message..
Kit - Clipart Fairy - RTP double up card - Boy button it
the only extra things I added were lots of Glamour dust and some gorgeous little flower sequins from MeiFlower for the flower centre. I just splodged a big dollop of tacky glue (any wet glue would do) into the middle of the flower and then added the sequins one at a time with tweezers.
 Here's the reverse of the card, showing the second card on the back and also a side view to show how it all goes together. I used a concertina of card inside mine to stop it from splaying as opposed to the ribbon method that is shown in the tutorial.

My second card uses the Interactive Double Up card - Rosie 1, 
I will add a link as soon as it goes into the store.
I used parts of the kit to make up my card front, which I printed out on the right hand side of a piece of A4 card. I folded the card in half, and held it together with pegs, whilst I cut around the shape, through the two layers. I added the toppers and decoupage to the front using foam pads. The pearl swirl was made using a Bazzill Jewel template and self adhesive pearls  from MeiFlower and the rolled roses were cut by hand from pearl paper printed with one of the colours from the card. A small bow and made with love charm (also from MeiFlower) were added under the wording, and there is lots of Glamour Dust around the scallops and Rosie's outfit. I also added a small white flower sequin to her hat.

Here is a close up of the pearl swirl, charm and flowers, and a side view of the card to try and show the layers.

Thanks for looking,
