Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of pursuing dreams. I’ve never really been a dreamer (too much of a worrier and effects of being an immigrant perhaps), but I admire it in others. As my nephew is graduating college soon, I’ve been hoping for him that he can continue to chase his dreams. I mean really, not just follow them, but CHASE them. I think he is doing that, and I am so proud of him.
I made this little card in a box style card with that theme in mind. I used a really cute Tiddly Inks image as the focal point of the card called “Everyday Princess,” and imagined that this little punky princess is daydreaming about running a circus. I used mostly Graphic 45 paper, 1 sheet from Steampunk Spells and another borders sheet from Le Cirque. To decorate the top part of the box that flips down, I used cloud paper from my stash. I did a lot of fussy cutting and popped up some images on foam adhesives and even used a bit of acetate to make it look like a couple of the clowns/tumblers were flying in the air! I love how it came out.
The following is a video share of the card:
