Castle Card…Fit For a Queen

One of the things I did this summer, was work at the camp at my school.  Each week had it’s own special theme, complete with activities and coordinating snacks.

Every detail was thought through, including how the classroom would look.  One of my friends scoured the neighborhood appliance stores for empty refrigerator boxes. Their purpose? To become appropriate structures for camp. 

For space camp, she constructed a rocket ship.  For science camp, they became an entrance to our “laboratory.”

For pirate and princess camp, she made a castle.  It was wonderful!

I just had to make her a birthday card that was fit for a queen…

I don’t know how Karen does it, but she never fails to bring us the most beautiful images.  I knew that I wanted the castle to have a magical and misty quality about it.

I printed it onto vellum paper and sprinkled glittery embossing powder over it, and set it with my heat gun.  Before it went onto the purple card, I backed it with white card stock.

So, I did things a little backwards here.  I decided that I wanted to use washi tape, and that it had to go under the white card stock {hand smacking head}.  Luckily, the edges weren’t stuck down…whew!

The “star” of this card is the castle, so I added just a little purple fiber for some texture. The back is so appropriate…

This crown is also from The Graphics Fairy…it’s very majestic!
