Every little boy wants to be a knight battling dragons and every little girl who settles for a pony most likely wants a unicorn… after all all princesses need a unicorn to get from A to B.
Unicorns and dragons are the things of fairytales, I for one love both! I remember a great wee family movie growing up called Pete’s Dragon, such a lovely movie. When the myths and magic was revealed at the stampin’ Up! Convention last November I immediately fell in love, I knew above all else I had to have this set! I was so disappointed not to get it early during prize patrol.
I’ve played with set and shared a card or two previously but this is my WOW card… it was my nephews 4th birthday a couple of weeks ago and I knew I had to get crafty with this set for him….
Isn’t this just the cutest ever?!? I am BIG into making pop up boxes, I have another best selling design with a Knight and dragon but this one is even better, it took a while to create but worth every minute.
The knights and dragons i fussy cut from the wonderfully sparkly designer series paper. The smoky slate base was embossed using the brick embossing folder and the pretty little princess is made from the mermaid stamp and a partial punch so her hair flows beautifully.
The hardest part of making this card was actually handing it over… to a four year old… a very enthusiastic four year old, thankfully a supervised opening and it stayed in one piece!
I’m in the process of preparing a step by step photographic tutorial for this card, if you would like a copy it’s free with all orders over £50 this month or available to buy as a PDF for £4, this will include a full list of supplies and templates for the castle, the only thing you won’t be able to buy sadly are the little letters and numbers dies…
Anyway must dash, heading for a late valentine dinner with my very own knight in shining armour… not sure he’s taking me on a unicorn so I suppose four wheels will have to do… this time anyway!
