Fairy Tilda Card


This card was so much fun to make, I started by weaving part of the background paper adding gold stripes to some of the edges.  The lace edge is made from parchment paper cut with a Martha Stewart border punch, I then further embellished the lace with simple embossing, next I cut and punched a strip of pink card to match  the parchment.  After experimenting with the parchment lace border I decided to try cutting the centre circle with a nestabilities scallop circle and decorated the edges again with simple embossing, only this time I decided to use a needle tool to further enhance the decoration.  See the picture below for a close up.


I made the heart from various sized punches cut from scrap card and paper decorated with gem and glitter.  Ribbon and beige/brown roses complete the card.  Tilda was coloured with Promarkers with glitter added to the wings and dress.  I had forgotten how relaxing it is to work with parchment, I think I will have to work on more :-)  Hope you like and thank you in advance for stopping by and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges
