A Farewell to Magical Day | Fancy Friday Blog Hop

It should come as no surprise that I am in love with the Magical Day stamp set and coordinating products. I am so sad to see that it will be retiring in May.... :(
Today's Fancy Friday blog hop is all about casing the Stampin' Up! catalog. My inspiration comes from this castle - while I wasn't intending to re-create this castle, I most certainly was using it as my muse.

I started the card by embossing the Brick Wall Embossing folder (also retiring). #sadness
Since this is a "gate fold" card, you have to emboss each side separately. The ribbon shown in this photo is the ribbon that came in the glimmer ribbon pack during sale-a-bration. It matched so perfectly, I couldn't help by use it. Be sure to use glue dots to adhere it all together!

On the inside, I distressed the gray patterned paper using my nail file. I know, I am quite fancy. Of course all colouring comes from my Stampin' Blends. I couldn't help but include that dragon. 

Thank you for dropping by today.

Up next is Dani Dziama.
I am totally in love with her blog design so I can only imagine what today's project will be like!

  1. Totally love your "castle" card and how it opens! I am a little sad this set didn't carry over too!

  2. Such a fantastic 'castle' card Cathy! Love the gate-fold and the colouring of your little charachters is simply gorgeous! I think we might need to start a #bringbackmagicaldaystampset campaign. Ha! Just love your card! Rochelle xo
