EMERALD FAERY GARDEN CHALLENGE

The theme this week in the Emerald Faery Garden is ANYTHING GOES...my personal favorite! I hope you find my pop-up tag card fun and something you'd like to try. The instructions are very easy and available at Splitcoast Stampers. It is interactive and sure to tickle anyone! Of course, you'll want to run right over to the brand new Emerald Faery Garden Challenge Blog for this first challenge too. AND best of all...you can win 4 digi stamps of these wonderful little creatures!

The card was made with a digi stamp of Emerald Faeries Kenz & Tilly, Bazzill embossed cardstock, Basic Grey cardstock, May Arts striped twill ribbon. Flowers were cut using the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge with self-adhesive pearls. Sturdy double stick red tape in 1/4" and 1/8" widths hold everything together.

I chose Kenz & Tilly for my Mother's Day version because it so sweetly depicts a mother's love to me. The faeries were colored with Copic markers: flesh - E00, 50, R00, 11, 20; dress - R00, 02, RV21, 23, 25, C1; scarf - R00, 02, RV21, 23, 25; hat - G20, 82, YG00; shoes - RV23, 25, 29, pants - C1, 3, 5; stripe pants - G20, 82, E50; hair - Y00, E50, YR21; wings - YG00, BG0000, RV000, G20. Lots of coloring, for sure!!

To make it possible to add a note for mom, I made my tag into a pocket by adding a thumb notch on the top with a circle punch. A square piece of white cardstock was scored and folded in half then corners rounded an eyelet added on the front of one half and a May Arts ribbon tied for easy moving in and out of the pocket...I think this would work well for a gift card holder too. Mom will love you for this imaginative card!
