Midweek Magnolias - Colour Blue

Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team has a new challenge for you and this week we are playing with the colour “Blue.” That’s easy right? 

Go to the Midweek Magnolias Challenge Blog for inspiration from the DT’s gorgeous creations and leave a comment on their blogs. These girls are such talented artists. 

When you join us for the challenge you’ll have a chance to win a fabulous Mystery Prize from Magnolia Sweden.

I decided to make a Crisscross card for the challenge to inspire you and used lots of pretty blue and I added some pink colors for a girly card. “Tilda with Love Cake” from the 2013 Love Collection is my main character from Magnolia-licious and I decided Birthday had to be the theme. This will make the perfect Birthday card for a young girl.

My papers are all from Magnolia and cardstock is Bazzill. I machine stitched my panels with blue thread and it stands out nicely. The lace is from a Scrapbook Expo I attended last October with my daughter but I can’t even remember the store name. I used some fun Magnolia die cuts for my crisscross trim and Tilda tag. The frames are from Spellbinders. I’ve had these for a while but never used them.

The inside features mini Tilda with Birthday Cake also colored with Copics. I die cut her with my Magnolia tag die so that you can pull the tag and the entire base come out of the crisscross pocket.


Here’s close ups of my Tildas.

Stamps: Tilda with Love Cake, Tilda with Birthday Cake, Magnolia; Sentiments, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Bazzill
Designer Papers: Magnolia
Dies/Punches: Magnolia; Spellbinders; Marianne Designs; Nellie Snellen
Ribbon: WOC
Pearls: Simplicity, JoAnn’s
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts; Kort & Godt 

I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:

I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Have fun creating…
