Tilda With A Gift For You

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. . . . . . . .

  1. Oh, me likey, Nancee! I love the shading on your Tilda's clothing! Well done! I am such a coward – my Copics just sit there looking all sad and neglected because I am afraid of them! You've done a great job and you card is darling!
