Art Impressions Fairy Flutter Card w/ Metallic Watercolors

Happy Wednesday Ai Fans!!!

In todays video and card we will be creating a funny and whimsical birthday card using some beautiful Metallic Accents to create our background! These metallic watercolors will give the background a beautiful shimmer and set the scene for our fun little fairy!

This stamp and die set is designed to create a fairy who’s wings will flutter (go up and down)…but we are going to do something a little bit different with it today.

I just love the little sentiment that comes with the stamp and die set which says “Poof! Your 29 again!”.

I know that my friends are going to love this card and that it will definitely bring a smile to their faces! I hope it makes you smile too!!!
