Just Magnolia Monthly Challege - August - 3D


Hi everyone, another scheduled post which I hope you're reading :). I thought I'd blog a card wallet that I made recently and sent to my friend Larissa, I know she's received it and that I can show it now, I'm also entering it for the Just Magnolia monthly challenge which is 3D and I'll pop my name into Mr. Linky in a few days time. There's a great tutorial by Debby who is so expert at 3D and who has generously shared all her tips for getting it just right. I particularly liked her tip for cutting out those difficult inner bits by cutting on glass instead of a cutting mat, I often end up with a raggedy mess when I do these bits with a craft knife so that was very helpful, thanks Debby. I made up the wallet with navy blue bazzil card and used BasicGrey June Bug papers which I love and thought would go well with the Ladybug Tilda. I've coloured Tilda with markers, 3D'd her head and her hand with the ladybug, only time for one layer I'm afraid! I've sponged some distress inks on the background and matted on some more of the navy Bazzil. There are three layers of MS heart punched borders and a wide yellow ribbon which has a pretty sparkly thread going through it. To finish I stuck some red gems in the corners. TFL. Chris x
