Tilda Finally Graduates...Isn't she cute??
A very happy Monday evening to each and every one of you!! I hope that your week is going well and that you are enjoying beautiful weather, wherever you may be!! And NOW, back to my Maggies!!!!
I made this card for Just Magnolia using a fantastic sketch by the talented and inspirational Rachel Jakes, better known to many of us as Rach. Thank you so much Rach for providing all of us with such a lovely and interesting sketch!
I used Bazzill CS for the base, PTI CS for matting and the DP is all Making Memories Black Tie. All panels were stitched in Old Silver thread. Tilda was stamped twice and both images were colored with Copics with a tiny touch of red Spica for her tassel. She was then cut out and propped up on dimensional tape onto round nesties. I added a spot of Diamond Glaze to her shoes and made a diploma tied with red ribbon for the lower right corner to serve as the sentiment and embossed CONGRATULATIONS in silver on the inside. It is certainly easy enough to untie for the recipient to read the message. The wider ribbon on the front is also Black Tie. I made a red tassel of DMC floss and placed silver beads on the corners. All of the flowers are from Crafty Feeling in the UK...I love Jayne's flowers!!
The inside of the card is stitched and is a repetition of the round nesties and same ribbon from the front. The Tomorrow stamp is placed on the first panel and the Graduation Diploma is placed on the jotting panel, colored with Copics and a tiny touch of red Spica on both. Finally smaller silver beads are added to soften the corners.
All of the stamps I used are from Magnolia-licious and are from the Graduation and Student Collection 2009 which is in house at Diana's. She offers free shipping to all US and Canada orders over $50. She has recently restocked much of her inventory so NOW is a wonderful time to get those Maggies that you have been wanting!!
I hope you like this little Tilda and are as proud of her as I am!! Please leave her a note letting her know what you think of her. Thank you so much for dropping by and visiting with us and I hope you willl come back often. Have a wonderful rest of the week...Hugs!!
