It's Tickle a Teapotter week, when we make cards to send to another person playing in Teapot Tuesday. Check here to join in: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...y-t585709.html.
This week's challenge was to incorporate your birth flower and/or the fairy for your birth month in your card. I guess I've never checked before, because I was somewhat surprised to learn January's flower is the boring old carnation. (anyone have a carnation stamp? Thought not.) Then, when I googled "January fairy" I found it was the Snowdrop fairy. I decided that the flower this fairy is sporting could be a snowdrop (if I made it white anyway). I put together a couple of Primas to try to create a carnation, just to cover my bases.
The card is a slider, for last week's Free 4 All. I'm not sure why only about 6 people have uploaded cards for that challenge, because this is really just another simple pocket card, and Dawn's measurements are perfect.
The fairy is colored with pencils. On her wings, I used superfine glitter in a pale yellow. There are Stickles on her lantern and on the stars on the card inside.

Love your "faux" carnation and snow drop fairy. What a sweet card full of glitter and shine. I too thought carnations were just ordinary flowers until I worked in a greenhouse where we only grew carnations. They have some gorgeous varieties, plus miniatures that are out of this world pretty. Too bad no one has made a stamp. hehe Love your card. TFS :0)

Back in the seventies, the craft craze here was to make carnations out of Kleenex tissues and 'paint' nail polish around the edges....I digress, your card is gorgeous, I love your sweet little fairy. You are going to make a Teapotter very happy!!
