Snow White

This card is in my design team gallery at the Gecko Galz website for the June 2014 releases.
Please visit to see inspiration from all the design team Galz.




Materials:

Gecko Galz:
Ever After individual collage sheet
Carnival Digital paper pack

Papers:
2 of  8.5 x 11 " Stampin' Up Night of Navy
1 of 12 x 12" Colorbok Textured Cardstock Earthtone Warm: orange

Trims:
2 widths of 2 colors of Orange ribbon
1 red ribbon
Starfoam Glitter Stickers:  Glitter Red
orange Doodlebug Design doodle twine
Metal birdcage with heart from Michaels A Place in Time metal embellishments

Misc:
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Cracked Texture Fade (embossing folder)
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 17 dies
red line tape
dimensional adhesive (pop dots)
adhesive
black marker for outlining images

Directions:

Ever After collage sheet:  crop, print and fussy cut Snow White image, outline with black marker
Carnival paper:  select Forbidden Fruits from digital paper pack, resize to 6-5/8" high by 5-3/8" wide
Night of Navy card stock:  Using score board, crease down middle of 11" length and fold in half.  Your card now is 5-1/2" wide.  Cut off excess so card measures 6-3/4" high.  The excess is called a "scrapling".  Put aside to use for another card. Adhere patterned paper to card.

Using another piece of navy and your orange card stock, use label dies to make two mats.
Run orange mat through an embossing folder for texture and added interest.  I chose the cracked folder to mimic the Wicked Queen looking in the mirror asking, Who's the fairest of them all? Adhere Snow White image to label mats.  Use foam dots from torso up.  Use glue for skirt.

Adhere orange trims with red line tape so that they fall within the bottom one third of your label mats and so that they are just below the cluster of forbidden fruit.  Place red glitter sticker strips on top of orange ribbon. Make bows from red ribbon and twine and attach metal charm.  (I chose a charm to represent the woodsman's mission to bring back Snow White's heart.)

Adhere label mats to card on top of trim, positioning in right 2/3 of paper to show off clusters of fruit on patterned paper and high enough so trim on skirt flows into ribbon trim on left side.  To have label mats lie flat, use foam dots on top one third and under ribbon trim.  Adhere bow to ribbon trim placing it at base of cluster of forbidden fruit.

Orange always works so well with blue and this lovely piece is no exception. Your layers add depth and the small amount of bling is just right!
