Terracotta Magnolia Easel Card
As you can see the colour has varied according to the light, the picture above is the truest colour to the actual card, whilst the card below is slightly darker.
Hi Everyone, I thought that I would make an easel card for a change and also use a peachy/terracotta colour combination, that I do not use often, so I thought that it would be a nice change to combine both.
I have used both the full size and mini Tilda with Butterfly Dress,for this easel Card, the die cut Tilda tag is removable from the main card and embellished with shabby seam binding and pearls. This is one of my favourite stamps, as it was one of the first that I bought, I bought the mini stamp around a year later to use together, so it has been a long time coming (using them together!).
The Stunning papers are Magnolia from the summer collection and Signs Of Spring Pion Papers and I have used a thick glitter embossed paper across the central panel.
I have used on the edge die cuts, which are double layered, so that the wings can be the wings of the top set can be lifted up and most of the florals are from the Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts, as are the shabby seam binding, Venice Petite lace and the mini bark heart on the left hand side of the card.
I designed the base layer to be distressed, so cut out a double layer magnolia flower, from colour core card (which as the name suggests, has a different coloured core). I sanded then shaped the flowers and used a diamonte button in the centre. The Two Ovals Were embossed and I creased the cream layer to give a crinkled effect, they were then distressed with liquid chalk.
I thought that using some skeleton leaves, was a nice change too and adds a lovely effect to the base. Included is one of my hand made pins, with a tiny butterfly charm attached, which I made myself and I distressed some of the white flowers with dried marigold distress inks.
I hope that you like my card and thank you for dropping by my little blog.
