A friend of mine asked if I could make some placecards for her daughters 4th birthday party. Of course I told her I could and then I asked the theme. When she told me Disney Princess's I thought I was going to have a seizure after remembering the horrible time I had with Tinkerbell. I was going to do something simple with crowns but then in the long run I ended up getting Happily Ever After and Dreams Come True so I could cut the princess's that matched the plates for the party.
I have to tell you that the Cri-Kits came in so handy!! I wanted to make the names in something glittery and wanted the font to match a fairytale. I thought I could use Storybook for the font if it would work okay with the Cri-Kits. I was thrilled with the results!! I did go back and fill in a bit with my Stampin Up markers but the names came out wonderfully!
I was pleased that all the little swirls and notches were clear and precise.
Here is the whole set of the place cards all finished. I was told the little girls really liked the place cards, and my friend was quite pleased with the end results.
While it was quite a task cutting all the princess's I do have to say they weren't too bad to cut. Putting them together took some time and patience but it was worth the work.
Here is a picture of Cinderella. I wanted to show the shadowing I did. I used Stampin Up inks and blender pen to do the shading on the images and I think it really added to the dimension of the characters. I also added a little glitz to each princess, whether it was Stickles or gems, I wanted each to have a little sparkle.
Here are pictures that you can see a little better if you want to see more detail. Don't forget you can click to enlarge the picture.
I think I will be using the Cri-Kits for making details on my projects!
