Bea makes her début on Free Craft Downloads

We have a new character on Free Craft Downloads this week
Bea the fairy

I have made a couple of cards using some of the papers

The first one is this one 

I used

Bea decoupage

Bea backing paper

Present backing paper

Flower template  printed on back of one sheet of the fairy backing paper


I also used a small piece of silver metalic card  (5"x7")

Starting with the decoupage I printed it once on a sheet of A4 smooth white paper
I then printed it again on a sheet of A5 smooth white paper
I then mirrored the decoupage and printed it again on another A5 sheet of smooth white paper

The Bea backing paper I printed on two sheets of A4 smooth white card
On the back of one of the sheets I printed the flower template

The present backing paper was printed in draft on A4 white paper  I chose to print  it in draft as I only wanted a pale image to show through the apperture in the inside of the card
I printed the frame on an A5 sheet of smooth white card

To make the card up  I folded one sheet of bea backing paper in half to make an A5 size finished card

 The second sheet I cut out the flower shape from the back of the card then folded it so it would pop out when the card was opened I stuck the faded present sheet to the middle of the main outer card and trimmed the top and bottom
then stuck the folded aperture pop out centre to it

I cut out and made up the two smaller decoupage sheets and stuck them back to back with a piece of silver grey thread between them  so it would hang from the centre of the inside of the card


I suspended the Bea decoupage from the top and stuck it down with a small piece of tape then stuck the two small presents to either side at the bottom of the flower shape


For the front of the card I cut around the frame and cut out the centre then stuck it on to the small sheet of silver metallic card  I cut around the main Bea image on the A4 size backing sheet and stuck it in the centre of the frame


This was then stuck to the centre of the front of the card

 I chose not to add a greeting to the card

The second card is this one

Mirror mirror on the wall ......
Bea fairy card 2
For this card I decided to combine old and new
I used the pink version  of Bea decoupage
present backing paper
the 5x5 square frame resized to 7cm x 7cm
Fairy decoupage
a small piece of silver mirror card
a speech bubble with words mirror mirror on the wall......

 I printed the present backing paper onto a sheet of
 A4 smooth white card and "tent" folded it
I printed both the old and new fairy  decoupage A5 size on white smooth paper
The pink speech bubble on to smooth white paper

I printed the frame on to smooth white card, cut it out and stuck it on to a small piece of silver mirror card
In the centre I stuck the  fairy decoupage (we had quite a while ago on FCD)

This is the finished card
I stuck the small present from the decoupage sheet on to the bottom right side of the card

Again with this card I chose not to add a greeting
