TILDA WITH FLOWER POT


Hi fellow crafters!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are resting up for the start of a new week.  November kinda snuck up on us and the holiday season is a busy time for all.  Today I would like to share a card I made back in September for my Card And Tag Swap (CATS).  I wasn't able to post it since my partner was taking a blog break but I'm sure it's okay now LOL!  Anyways, the theme for September was "Flowers" so I decided to use my sweet Tilda With Flower Pot for my swap.  Still one of my faves among all my faves LOL!
This is the front of the card and I've used a SB tag die to keep the "window" closed.  I made a little flower box beneath the window.

When you open the window, you'll see Tilda with her flower pot peeking out.  My awning is made using SU! word window punch.  I saw this idea several years ago when this punch first came out and didn't make a note of the creator, so I apologize. I embossed the window panels with TH woodgrain embossing flolder (not sure of the exact name of this folder). And here you see Tilda peeking out, holding her flower pot.  I paper-pieced her coat.  Coloring was done using Copics.





This is the inside of the card, and again I've used an old SU! sentiment stamp and on the right I've left a blank spot for jotting a note to my partner.  We also had to make a tag to complete the set and this is what I made:
The cover swivels open so a greeting can be written on the inside.  
Thank you for stopping by today.  Now I need to really get started with my holiday cards as I'm always late!  Have a wonderful week and happy crafting to you all.
Warm Hugs,
