First cut your card stock to an Artist Trading Card size (3.5x2.5”). I used my Silhouette Cameo which I created a template, for both the ATC and a card slightly smaller than the ATC.
I like my ATC nice and strong so I will generally always glue patterned paper to card stock to make it stronger. Using Distress Inks (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick) and TCW Stencil I created a subtle flower background on the ATC.
Next I stamped VLVS Fairy image with Memento Black on the card (slightly smaller than the ATC).
I used TCW Stencil and Distress Inks again to create the same flower background around the stamped fairy.
I then added some colour (Festive berries ink using a water brush) to the fairies dress.
I let it dry before I added glitter to the wings and dress.
Using my distress tool I distressed the edges of the paper and cut some slits on the side. I then adhered this to the ATC.
The quote was printed on white card stock from my computer and distressed inked using the same colour scheme. I also added glitter around the edges.
Then to finish it off - More Glitter, just around the edges of the ATC.
