Cinderella Storybook Card

Cinderella is the second card in my Disney Storybook collection. Honestly, I love the storybook aspect of these cards. It reminds me of Fantasyland in Disneyland. Plus, since I can't be there this year, it is nice to have these projects to take me back to some of my favorite memories.

The First Panel:  Cinderella

As with the previous card, this is a 4-panel flip card. I used the same base as the first card and modified it with the Cinderella storyline, so I didn't need to start from scratch. The digital images were purchased from Etsy, and the cut files are from Cricut Design Studio. Luckily, I owned the Cricut cartridge Happily Ever After. 

The Cruel Stepmother

The backside of First Panel: The Cruel Stepmother

The digital pattern paper is by RessoStudio on Etsy. I did add a bit of Distress Oxide in Faded Jeans to the edges and front of the paper to give it an aged look. The lace is a Tim Holtz Die

A bit of trivia, do you know Cinderella's real name? It is Ella. They called her Cinderella because she would get the cinder ash on her when she would clean the fireplaces. 

The Second Panel: The Fairy Godmother

I love how the little spool of thread in this panel reaches over to the scissors to be cut. Instead of using the cut-file 'as is,' I decided to wrap blue thread around the spool. I think it adds a nice touch to the project and gives it a bit more flair. I appreciate different textures on a card.

The Third Panel: Cinderella Heading to the Ball

To cut down on the bulk of the card, I left this panel flat and did not use any foam dots. It is just the individual digital clipart, and the Design Studio cut files. Typically, I would want to add more dimension, but I found with the first card, I needed to cut back a bit on the thickness of the card. Either way, I still band the cards to hold everything together. 

The Fourth Panel: Cinderella and the Prince

As with all the rides in Fantasyland, our story comes to a fast conclusion in the final scene. I trimmed the castle to fit the panel using the slice feature in Design Studio. The castle was initially much more substantial, so I had to cut off the excess on the sides. I couldn't just scale it down because I wanted the height. I did this same process for most of the digital images. 

Here is a final full look at the card in its extended form:
