Once Upon a Time...

Hello, Friends! I hope you are all enjoying your summer. It has been very warm here in Colorado which makes us stay indoors with the air-conditioning and allows me to spend time in my craft studio. However, we are heading into our monsoon season and that will help keep the temps down in the afternoon.

I made a card earlier this week and I’m just now getting around to posting it. I’ve had this “Tilda with Apple” forever it seems and finally made a card with her. She reminds me so much of Snow White that I tailored her dress for the character. I don’t know about you but I am a huge Disney fan and always have been. 
I used some pretty Magnolia papers with Bazzill cardstock. I distressed my butterfly paper and several of my die cuts with Forest Moss and Faded Jeans Distress ink. The green cardstock panel was embossed with a Cuttlebug Flower Embossing folder. Then I sponged Faded Jeans over the flowers to make them stand out and distressed the edges with Forest Moss.
For Tilda’s frame I used some white acrylic paint to distress the edges of my blue pattern paper then mounted my image with foam tape for dimension and added a strip of lace under the frame. I used my Memory Box, Meridian Border die as a banner by cutting slits between the scallops to allow it to bend naturally. Finally, I added my distressed fence and Honey Blossom die cuts and flowers.
I die cut my Magnolia Scalloped Tag, distressed with Faded Jeans and ran it through my printer for my sentiment then attached a seam binding bow.
I replicated some elements from the front of my card for the inside, ready for a personal message.
These are the Copics I used to color Tilda.

Cardstock – Bazzill
DPs – Magnolia
Flowers – WOC & Magnolia
Dies/Punches – Magnolia & Memory Box
Lace Trim – JoAnn’s
Embossing Folder – Cuttlebug
Distress Ink – Ranger
Seam Binding – WOC
