Hellooooo everyone, hasn't the weather been lovely? It's very spring-like here, and it's just the right temperature for me - warm enough not to need to wrap up all the time yet still cool enough for a hot water bottle at night.....perfect!
I have a Tilda card to show today, it's been a while since I made one. It's actually a gatefold card which is also a little image wallet and I thoroughly enjoyed making it, once I'd coaxed my mojo out from it's hiding place. I chose very spring-like colours of pink, green, yellow, blue and white.
This little rubber stamped Tilly is one I've never done before, she was a gift from everyone's fave crafting gent, Kevin, so I'm not sure what she's called. I chose the spring colours and portrait layout especially for the TOMIC challenge (which had ended by the time said mojo would deign to make an appearance...doh!), but I managed to include some other challenge themes in there too.
|Tied closed, but I havent pulled it tight so it's fallen open a bit|
|This is what the right side looks like, it's mostly covered when the card is closed|
The 3 gorgeous papers are all from Prima's Annalee pack, there's the main green paper, some pink paper which I used for matting, and some floral paper which was actually a little scrap piece. I made a tag from the papers too which you can see on the front of the card.
All the papers were handstitched, and because the card is a smaller one than my usual (C6 sized) I scaled the stitches down to a smaller size.
The inside is decorated too, and you can see I've put some ready-coloured toppers in the wallet for the photos.
|The wallet contains some toppers|
A Prima leaf, some roses, a butterfly, some pink ribbon and some white lace finish it off.
Even the back is decorated!
|Not often I decorate an inside, let alone the back of the card!|
