Wanna Be My Valentine at Just Magnolia???
Happy Friday evening!! And the good news is that the heating installer has promised me that there will be HEAT when he leaves my house tomorrow...of course it is now 12 degrees F and will drop to less than 10 tonight...not only do I have every heat apparatus in the house running but also the washer and dryer humming and the faucets all dripping...lolol
On a much lighter note, this is my Just Magnolia card for this week where the requirement is Paper Pleating. We were instructed by the magnificently and unbelievably talented Mina over on the Just Magnolia blog in an extremely well written and illustrated tutorial on how to perform this technique. Thank you so much, Mina, for the excellent tutorial! I sincerely hope that all of you will join us and show us your interpretation of paper pleating!!! Please let me say that I did all of my pleating using the miracle machine (smile) Scor-Pal!!! I would never have attempted the precise folds without the Scor-Pal....this made it so much easier to fold to my exact measurements!!!! AND the pleats held so securely with Scor-Tape...reminds me that I better call Diana, because I am almost out YET again...lolol
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all double matting is PTI, and the DP is from MM Love Notes and the dots are 3ndypapir.no. I used the darling Valentine Tilda from the 2009 Collection from Magnolia-licious and colored her with Copics. The base panels are machine stitched and I added some trim with red cherry blossoms, a couple of heart pins, some very narrow satin ribbon and bows for Tilda to sit on and finally a heart gem to match the hearts at the bottom of her dress...
The inside uses the same papers as the front, a grosgrain ribbon and slide on the first panel, and a satin ribbon with heart charm for the jotting spot. I also made a coordinating canister using the same trims and filled it with yummy chocolate truffles for some lucky winner!! All you have to do is leave a comment and a winner will be selected on Monday, January 11, at noon EDT
Thank you so much for dropping by to see what's happening in my Magnolia world!!! I hope you will come back often!! I hope your world tonight is a bit warmer than mine is...lol...Great big Maggie hugs for everyone!!!!
