I Love You This Much, Tilda!



Happy Thursday Everyone! This is a very simple card because I did not do much on the card front, mainly because I wanted to preserve the beautiful colors on this DP. The card base is 5.5" square and I decided to use a black mat so Tilda's wings would pop out while still carrying the color theme of the DP. I cut Tilda out and also her antennae and used a flower stamen colored with Copic in place, then popped her on foam tape. With her arms wide open, I thought the sentiment "I Love You This Much!" was befitting. It is computer generated and I punched it out with my SU Word window punch. I used a new EK Success mini double scallop border punch that I love because I have no problems punching cardstock vs. most of my MS punches that get jammed. A little lace trim and a delicate butterfly applique is all I used with a bit of turquoise organdy ribbon. On the inside, I tried to carry over the scallop border and colored the butterfly applique with Copic markers to give it some color so it's not too stark white. I used a SU! Top Note die for the message section and colored the border again with Copic to give it some definition apart from the DP. That's it! Very little stamping and coloring (just my speed LOL!). Thank you for stopping by today and now it's my turn to do some blog hopping to see all your wonderful creations!
Recipe:
Stamp: Butterfly Tilda/Chasing Butterflies Collection/Magnolia
CS: CTMH black
DP: NRN Designs/Reflection Scroll
Ink: Copic markers (E50, R00, E00, E15, E35, V06, B02, BV02, BV01, B000)
Others: EK Success border punch, flower stamen for antennae, sentiment was computer generated

Our 20 month old granddaughter does this...so I was going to use the butterfly Tilda to make her an "I love you this much" card! You beat me! Although, mine will be the other image that came w/the Spring Club kit. It's fun to see yours and be even more inspired to get it done and sent!!!
thanks!

Linda said...

Hi Cami! OMG - I can't believe you cut out the antennae! Wait - I reread what you wrote. You cut off the antennae and replaced it with the flower stamen, right? Let me know, cuz, if you actually cut out those antennae, I'm gonna scream! LOL! I just love everything about this card - your design, the color combo, and the sentiment matches so well with her arms wide open! TFS, and you have a wonderful weekend, k? xoxo, Linda
