I am so in love with the artwork on the Once Upon a Princess cartridge that I received from ScrapbookPal.com! It's very cute, with just the right amount of spunky-ness to keep it fun and un-cheesy. I also received great embossing folders that are made to coordinate with the artwork on the cartridge (what a great idea!) and these neat Smooch inks. They come in what looks like a little nail polish bottle, and they have a fabulous metallic finish that is great for accenting.
For this card I first embossed the background and then sanded it to bring out the details. I then cut the little fairy at 3 1/4". These multi-layered cuts definitely take a while to cut and assemble, but they are so adorable it's worth the extra time! I used the apple green Smooch ink to add the little metallic dots to the edge of her dress and hat, which was such a nice touch. The little cloud-shaped label and the phrase "Magical" are also from OUaP. I used my SU scallop border punch to create the grass below.
Here's another sweet little cut from this cartridge. I cut this angel at 3 1/2" and paired her with a great quote to create a bright, happy card for someone I know who needs a pick-me-up. I colored her halo with the olive green smooch, which comes out a nice deep silver color.
