Jam Tilda - Regal Rose and So Safron


Wow, a whole week has almost gone past again and I have not done much crafting at all.

But I have managed a card tonight that I am quite happy with. It came together very quickly (love it when that happens)

I decided to try my hand at getting a little more creative with my flower this time instead of just using them straight out of the punch so to speak. I used three different sized scollop circles of So Safron cardstock for this flower and inked around them with SU So Safron Ink. I then cut almost to the centre at each scollop all the way around the large one. Using my bone scorer I rubbed the underside of the large scollop circle to give it more of a curled shape and then layered the two smaller ones on top securing them together with a brown brad.

Both the flower and the matted imaged are popped up on dimentionals.

The ribbon is a white satin? ribbon that I coloured with a SU So Safron marker an idea I got from my friend Edna. Pop on over and check out her blog she makes the most stunning cards.

I created the white strip under the ribbon using the SU eyelet border punch and I also used this punch to create the corners for the image.

Tilda's skin is coloured with Copics and the rest is done with water colour crayons.

After noticing a VERY big smudge on the inside of the card (how I missed it before I started working on the card I don't know!) I decided to decorate the inside of the card too.


Linking this card to:

Just Magnolia - In The Garden ( hoping floral BG and one big flower makes it fit!)

Thanks for stopping by today to take a look.

Lindo! Adorei.


A beautiful card Michelle - your colouring is stunning and I love the clever way you have created a "wall" for Tilda to sit on. The inside of the card is just as pretty as the outside.
Love, Sylvia xx
