With Love Secret Tilda
I needed to make a card for my MIL's birthday which is coming up next week and opted for Secret Tilda, hiding her present and a medley of soft pinks for my colour palette. I coloured her as usual, with Promarkers, giving her a pretty, lacy mat and used a combination of papers from Celeste Knight to bring all my elements together. I chose the layout over at Totally Tilda for those delish floral based papers and cut my 3 flowers from them too. They were cut using my Cameo & both designs of flowers were the roll-up variety - which means too, of course, that I did battle with my glue gun! LOL. The pearly highlights were not actual pearls this time around but Cosmic Shimmer Pearl glue dropped into half spheres to give that illusion. I was quite pleased too, that I managed to get them of uniform size & shape.The white lace running along the top of my cut horizontal border is by Offray & which is also suitably subtly floral in design. Having cut myself an extra banner sentiment when I made my last card (to use all my available space on my card as it went through the printer & Cameo, LOL), I utilised that on this occasion though I needed to cut it's mat to match this one's colour scheme. This banner, along with Tilda's lacy mat, were attached to the card using Pinflair glue-gel to raise them up & add a bit of dimension.
For the inside, I went for a regular paper insert with chosen verse, but I emphasised the lacy, girly theme by adding wavy edges on 3 sides and by punching along the bottom with a Martha Stewart punch.
