Texas Tilda


Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start :). A card to show today which I'm entering into Cute Card Thursday whose them this week is 'let's get krafty', Papertake Weekly where it's 'bloom and grow' and Creative Card Crew with the theme 'cute and girly'.

I die cut my card base with a GoKreate die from kraft card then cut the with the die next size down and used this to stamp and colour Tilda and the cactus with pencils for the CCT element. I added swirl roses that I die cut using a sizzix die for the PPTW element and then decorated with eyelets, twine, punched leaves, pearl pen pearls, rub on letters and black and white gel pen doodling. 

Enjoy your Saturday and thank you as always for the lovely comments, I always appreciated them :).

Hi Chris, this card is gorgeous! You have really piqued my interest with your wonderful work. Can you tell me how you achieved the card shape without cutting off the top of the shape? Also, did you do hand stitching on this card? I would appreciate any information you can spare me.
