Today the Guardian of Glitter and I decided to visit the fae court and seek an audience with the Spring Sprite. We were rather sick of the winter and all the snow and were hoping to win her favour and perhaps speed up the changing of seasons. We packed our travel sacks with gifts as we would surely need to bribe our way in to have her see us. Many people have attempted this before, and none have succeeded. We however, had a trick up our sleeve, so to speak. Using the tome we recovered, we crafted a forbidden spell called Razzle Dazzle which would render the victim unable to refuse your requests. Because the Guardian of Glitter’s sparkle level was so high, she was confident she could successfully cast the spell.
apologize for my ink pad in the picture, but I needed something to keep
the card shut. I planned this card with few challenges in mind. I was
going to be following a sketch, but also making a “fancy fold”, so I
needed the card to follow the sketch when it was all folded up. My image
piece ended up being a little wider than I had hoped, covering a little
too much of the floral strips...ah well.
I started making this card by
stamping The Greeting Farm’s “Daisy” and colouring her with
Prismacolors. I subtly stamped some swirls and swooshes around the edges
with Distress Ink. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut out the
flower and the tab where I stamped the sentiment using Lawn Fawn’s
“Sophie’s Sentiments” set.
what the card looks like opened from the front and the side. This
earned me +692 folding exp points, which allowed me to level up! [insert FFVII fanfare]. I embossed all the panels with the Cuttlebug and inked them to make the flowers stand out more.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set.
On the envelope I stamped a flower using the My Little Shoebox “Garden Party” set and quickly coloured it to match the flowers on the paper with Distress Markers.

chance would have it, the Razzle Dazzle spell was actually invented by
the Spring Sprite, and by trying to use it against her, I do believe we
angered her...a lot. The Guardian of Glitter and I fled the fae court
before the Spring Sprite could cast anything on us. I have a sneaking
suspicion we may have earned another couple months of winter. *sigh*
