Wish Big Petal Card

Hello!  So, I don’t usually go the technique route on my cards but I saw the most adorable Petal Card tutorial created by Beate for Split Coast Stampers. So cute that I immediately added a petal card to my To Do list!  Of course, I needed the perfect image and thought the Pure Innocence – Believe in Magic would do the trick. :)

And here is my finished project…


I stamped the little girl in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with Copic markes.  I paper pieced the upper portion of her dance outfit with some designer paper and added glitter to her wings.  Next I cut her out and added a sparkly pink rhinestone to her wand.  Once I finished decorating the belly band that keeps the petal card closed I attached her using foam dimensionals dots.


Here is a shot of what the card looks like without the belly band holding the petals closed.


And finally… the inside of the card!


So much fun and I think I will have to add this to my list of favorite techniques! Have you made a petal card?  I’d love to see your take on this fun project! :)
