Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team has a new challenge for you and this week we want to see those lovely creations with “Gingham.” It can be paper, ribbon or fabric as long as we see gingham.
Hop over to Midweek Magnolias for inspiration from the DT’s gorgeous creations and leave some love on their blogs. When you join us for the challenge you’ll have a chance to win a fabulous Mystery Prize from Magnolia Sweden.
I chose to make my card with the adorable “Tilda with Dot Bow” from the 2013 Love Collection. You can get her at the Magnolia-licious store. She is colored with Copics and I used the no-line coloring technique. I need some practice but this was my first try with Memento Angel Pink ink. I used a fabulous template from CREAlies for my card shape. However, I increased the largest template size by using my Silhouette Cameo to create and cut the shapes for me.
I distressed a bit around my paper panels with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and my cardstock panels are from Bazzill. My flowers are from WOC and Kort & Godt. I added my American Crafts gingham ribbon across the center of my panels and a small pearl on top of the bow knot. The LOVE sentiment was created with my PC cut and distressed in a block formation.
My easel card base has similar elements from the front and I heat embossed the “To My Valentine” sentiment with pink embossing powder. I punched it out with a circle punch and distressed with Frayed Burlap for dimension. I also used foam tape to pop up my sentiment and Tilda.
I kept my Valentine card light and simple…here’s a close-up of Tilda.
