Good morning crafty friends

I am sure you will have seen this particular die on many cards as I have and I've finally bought one, from China, unbranded of course, with no postage costs

I first die cut it on black card and added the purple background then layered it onto silver mirri card and finally the base purple card

The die is 10cm square and the finished card is 11cm square

I used a silver glitter marker pen (NUVO 'Silver Mist 183) to cover the wings and the bottom pieces at the base of the card

I had my box of silver/gold scraps on my worktable and decided to make a few more.  They are a cute size for a note card or, as a bundle as a little gift for someone or donation to a charity/craft fair etc 

Card number two was die cut from silver glitter card and adhered to silver mirri card.  You can see the correct silver mirri colour on the bottom right of the card, the rest is a reflection from the photographic box I use

Once adhered to the mirri card I added a slightly larger panel of black card then the white base card

This is slightly larger than the first one and measures 11.5cm square

Die cut again in black but mounted onto silver glitter card, then silver mirri card and finally a black card base

This one measures 13cm square

I will add an insert to all 3 cards at a later date, and will increase 'my bundle' to at least 5 or 6 cards in total.  I still mostly work with imperial measurements, hence 6 cards, 5 if I 'go' metric

Those eagle eyed may have noticed that on the last card the fairy is missing half an arm!.. it blends in well don't you think?

When I bake I always use metric and I still find that strange because I'm an old fashioned gal at heart!
