Tilda say's 'just for you' so charmingly in orange.

Hi buddies and bloggers,

Is it afternoon already? Amazing how time flies when you're having fun. Getting a few girly cards in before I have to do BOY ones again. ( 2 more, ahhh ) Today's card is similar to a rocker but isn't!!  It's one of my new spellbinder shapes that I bought last week and haven't got round to playing with yet. I got to use one of my multiple coloured Tilda's from a few weeks ago too.

The die is Grand Labels Eleven. I used the largest size to make a landsacape card with a piece of white A3 card. None of my card blanks were big enough, even the 8x8 ones. The rest of the dies I used in portrait. The backing paper is from the Craftartist spring in your step digikit. There are some beautiful papers in the digikits and the thing I love about Craftartist is that you can choose which colours you want, without having to troll through every single backing paper. I printed this mat on supersmooth 220gsm, because it's at the back and needs to support the rest of the layers. The smallest mat is textured white card, distressed with Tim Holtz shabby shutters and then matted onto core'dinations just peachy.

I made the flowers with the spellbinder daisy topper die using both the backing paper and just peachy card. The centres are material covered button brads from my stash. The floral flourishes were made in the same cards and two pearl hat pins were placed in between the layers, to hide the sharp points. Tilda was coloured with promarkers.

To add the finishing touch,  I used some peach ribbon with a faux bow and threaded an orange craftime charm onto some jump rings, which I put through the knot.

I haven't made a support bar with this card, I'm not sure if it needs one. It seems more stable than the rocker cards, but the jury is still out on that one. I was left a comment on one of my posts about my liberal glittering and it made me smile. Yes, I own up, I am a liberal glitterer, all over the card, me, my craft table, the floor, the whole house.........
