The weather has finally improved! After sub-zero temperatures and wind chills, the 44 degrees we had to day was a welcome relief! The house is back to pre-Christmas, so I had some time to make a card! Yipee! This is a birthday card using Tilda With a Gift for You. I embossed the bottom layer of paper with a polka dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug and then used some paper from the Bella Paper Pack. I thought it was so pretty!
Here is a look ……
And another. . . . . . . . .
I used Copics to color Tilda and some glitter pens to decorate the gift’s ribbon. I used the Flora Ovals to cut out a frame. I was going to cut out Tilda, and then decided to turn the card and cut out Tilda in an oval and add it to the frame. I added some lace to the frame and then hand cut the oval with Tilda.. I put some dimensionals on the frame and sentiment to pop them up a bit. I thought this was a little different than what I normally do and am happy with the way it turned out.
Here is a close-up of Tilda. . . . . . . . .
I added a sentiment at the bottom, and again tried something different. I used a punch from EK, but thought it was a little big. I saw someone on Pinterest show how to use a large punch and make a smaller tag from it. It worked great! I will certainly have to remember this! I used my Bow-It-All to create the small bows. I love the Bow-It-All. It makes perfect bows every time, and any size! I always made my bows myself, but this makes them perfect every time, and they are still “handmade”!
Here is one more look. . . . . . . .
