My cousin turned 5 last week and had her birthday party over the weekend. I wanted to make her a special card that she would love. What girl does not want to be a princess and live in a castle? I put together this castle card for her.
I designed each of the pieces and then cut the castle svg with the Sizzix Eclips. I used patterned scrapbook paper in pink and green with pink card stock as the backing. I then assembled all the pieces and added a sentiment on the inside of the card. I used dimensional adhesive to adhere all of the pieces. I also added magnets so that the castle doors would stay shut. The entire card wouldn’t fit in a regular envelope so I had to use a catalog envelope that was 6 1/2 x 9 1/2.

The castle card SVG file is free for download so you can cut and make your own castle cards. This download does not include a printable version because the pieces are a bit intricate and detailed.
Download Castle Card
The download has three different SVG files. The card base, the decorative elements and interior of the card and then a file called card back. I added the card back file because when I originally cut my castle I did not use thick enough card stock. I didn’t think it was strong enough to stand up on it’s own. So I cut the back section out to give it strength. The card now stands on it’s own easily. If you use thick enough card stock you probably won’t need the back section.
