Pink Castle Birthday Card
by Sara Cook

A new Memory Box release is here and I am loving all the castle images.  There are stackable dies and a stamp set.  I got inspired to create a scene looking at a castle under a willow tree.  So many more amazing dies and stamps in this release.  Make sure to check them all out on the website.



Stamped the castle, clouds, and scroll images from the Majestic Achievements clear stamp set with Clair Versa Fine Nocturne and used Copic alcohol markers to color the images. The castle is colored with cool grays,C1,C3, C7 and violet pinks,RV02 and RV04.  For the clouds  just outline them with the lightest blue B000. For the scroll use browns, E00,YR20, and E33. Die cut the images with the matching dies.  Then add some white highlights with a gel pen and stamp the sentiment on the scroll image.

Card base:

Trim a matching pink card stock from the Vibrant Violet back to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  Die cut out the Pinpoint Burst plate from white card stock and then ink blended the sky with Distress Ink, Squeeze Lemon Aide, Broken China, and Salty Ocean. Die cut the sky with the largest die in the Nested Globe die set making sure the sun is in the upper center.  Hand cut a green hill from a green in the Lush Green paper pack.  


Willow Frame:

To create a frame use the 2 largest dies from the Nested Globe die set and die cut 4 frames from Kraft Woodgrain card stock. On one of the frame use Distress Ink Vintage Photo and add by running the pad, grain direction, over the die cut.  Glue just 3 of the non-colored frames together.  Die cut the Willow Globe from a green in Lush Green paper pack twice. 


Create a A2 size card and adhere the pink card base to the card.  Adhere the hill then castle and clouds to the sky background. Trim off any excess paper.  Then adhere the 3 stack frames.  Adhere the willow branches on the top frame to frame in the castle.  Adhere the colored frame to the top.  Adhere the  scroll image with sentiment to the lower right hand corner.  Adhere the scene to the card. Add clear jewels to the center of the flowers.







Delightful card for a little princess!

A perfect card for a young girl who loves fairy tales.
