I know I said in yesterday's post I was done with Winter projects but I had this one on the go for the last week and just put the finishing touches on it a couple nights ago! I hope you don't mind - it's for a good cause I promise - my Niece is turning the big 3 next week and she is Frozen OBSESSED (as I am sure every little girl is!).
I wanted to make a card that was a little unique to some of the others I've seen out there and as usual the idea came when they always do...when I'm trying to sleep LOL. I envisioned Elsa's beautiful ice castle and I think the finished product turned out pretty darn close. My validation on kid related projects almost always comes from one of my boys so when I asked Griffin what he thought it was and he immediately said, "Elsa's Castle!" I knew I had a winner :) I wish you could see it in person - it sparkles and shimmers just like real ice! Given as a gift it would be a nice touch to add in a battery operated tea light; the castle REALLY comes to life then!
And the best part of the ice castle? If you guessed that its a Card in a Box, you'd be right! I made the tag as an addition so I could write her Birthday message on the back of it instead of cluttering the walls of the castle.
As I'm fairly certain that there might be a few other little girls out there that might enjoy Elsa's Castle as much as I'm hoping my Niece does, I thought I would make a Template and Tutorial available.
