Fairyopolis frame cards

14/08/11

I saw some gorgeous frame cards over on the American Crafter’s Companion blog, created by the lovely Carmi and I wanted to share them with you as a step-by-step tutorial. Here’s how Carmi has explained so well how to create these fab frames…

Materials…

Fairyopolis CD

The Boxer Board

Neenah cardstock

Spray and Sparkle

To create…

These frame cards start out as artwork you print from the CD. I printed my set on white cardstock.

The fairy in each frame is a 3D paper decoupage. I cut out all the parts and used 3D glue or foam pads to layer the images into place.

The frame itself was my favourite part of each project. It is a marvel of maths! I cut out the main box image and immediately noticed the white dash lines indicating where I needed to make score lines.

The boxer score board was perfect for this task! I was able to line up the dash marks with score line easily!

The frame builds itself when everything is scored!

This is the back. I then attached the main image, the extra pieces to complete the inside frame and of course, my fairies.

A little Spray and Sparkle glitter gave it some shine!

Voila! Stunning Fairyopolis Frame cards!
