For Somebirdy Special!!! Wonder who that may be????
A very happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope your weekend has been a delightful one and that your week ahead is even more wonderful!
I didn't want little Tilda to feel left out since I made a matching presentation box for the darling Maya in my last posting. So this time I also attempted another envelope box for little Tilda!!!
I used Bazzill CS for the card base, Prismatic papers for the matting and BG Wisteria DP for the rest of the card. I used Tilda With Birdcage from the new Pet and Animal Collection 2009. You can find her at Magnolia-licious. I stamped Tilda 4 times and colored her with Copics with a touch of Gold Spica on the birdcage. I then cut them all out -- 2 for the front, 1 for the inside, and 1 for the envelope box. The front panel was stitched in Old Gold and for the left panel I used a metallic gold crochet ribbon from Quixotic Paperie, a Seafoam organza ribbon from Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, and a gold metallic eyelash trim from Honeysuckle Hollow here in this little town. I added a gold chain with tiny brads to hang the birdcage charm...of course all of the charms are from Michaels and were silver so I had to primer and spray paint each one a gold color. Two of the Little Tildas were propped up on dimensional tape, Finally I added a seafoam bow with pearl center and pearls on the corners.
The inside of the card is just more of the same...after taking the pictures I think I should add some pearls to the corners on the inside. I did use the For Somebirdy Special text stamp from Magnolia-licious on the jotting spot and added a gold bird on the top panel.
For the presentation box/envelope box I used the Easy-To-Use "Thinking Inside the Box" Thick Envelope template from PriscillaStyles. The papers are 12"X12" BG Wisteria papers. I cut out 2 of the bases and adhered them to each other so that a pretty lining would be apparent when the envelope is opened. And of course I used the requisite Scor-Tape and would not even consider making this box without it. No other tape that I have ever found will hold as securely as Scor-Tape--that I can promise you!!!
On the front of the box I used another Tilda, added the same chain and charm treatment as the front of the card but this time a charm of a glass framed birdcage, and a seafoam bow with pearl center. Finally I added an addressee panel and used pearls for the corners. For the back of the box I hand stitched the tab with DMC Gold Precious Metal Effects and added pearls to each of the corners. I used tiny seed pearls to hide the seams on the bottom. Finally for closure I used Velcro corners.
Thank you so much for dropping by to see what we are up to today. I hope you will let us know what you think of this little Tilda and her very own presentation envelope. Please come back again real soon!! We love having you visit us! Have a delightful week and until we meet again, hugs and more hugs!!!
