I love castles!

Hello and welcome!  Christmas celebrations are behind us and I am ready for a project that is NOT Christmas cards.  I needed to make a birthday card for a little girl.  Who doesn't like the whole castle and being a princess for a day?  So I made her a very detailed castle birthday card.  Let's start off with the lyrics...

~ScrappyDew Royalty Palz cut file #2 and #17
~Card base Core'dinations gemstones Amethyst
~Heidi Glace rube on stickers
~Costco Silver tissue paper pack holiday
~ScrappyDew Snowflake File
~Envelope Imaginisce Baby Doll

First thing I did was to take the base of the castle and duplicate it in Make The Cut.  Next   I mirrored the second castle and welded them to create a castle card base. Decorating the castle was the fun part.  The rub on stickers look so cute.

The borders were perfect

I love how the snowflakes fit the card
Now this castle has a very special door.  The Royalty Palz file for the castle has a door but I wanted it to open.  In MTC, I added the phrase to the door (an abbreviated print and cut) and then made another door.  I split the second door down the middle and added some grommets and threaded a pretty pink ribbon through to tie the door closed.  I very carefully barely glued the edges so the second door would stick to the first door.  Here is a pic to better explain.
Door open
Door Closed
Now for the inside.  This little girl is such a girly girl.  She has hair that in the summer goes white and she is just a firecracker!  So I made her a princess that I hope see likes.  On the other side is a happy birthday greeting.


The inside of the card
Now one last picture to show you.  I had the cutest package of paper from Imaginisce called Baby Doll.  This just made the whole card come together.  So here are the finished card and the envelope.
All done!
Thank you so much for joining me today.  I hope you had the very best Christmas celebration.  Now next week I have a gift tag to share with you that is for my DIL.  Tell you all about it then.

Happy and Blessed New Year 2015 to all!  Bright Blessings, Jana

  1. Having her name inside the door, she's going to love that! Carrying on with the snowflake theme on the inside of the card, nice touch!
