Happy Bird-Day! aka Tilda with the Bird Cage

Finally I got a chance to make a card with the Tilda stamp from the new Pet Collection by Magnolia!! This stamp is called Tilda with Bird Cage, you can buy her and the other stamps in this collection here. The stamps in this collection are just so adorable!! Oh, and don't forget that with the purchase of two or more Tilda stamps your purchase ships FREE!!

This is one of the cards for my upcoming "Tilda - Pet Collection" card class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. We will make two cards in this class (still working on the second one) plus we will make custom envelopes using the Enveloper. This class is scheduled for:

Thursday, July 30th, 11 am to 2:00 pm
Thursday, July 30th, 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Please bring foam tape (pop up dots) and your favorite adhesive to the class. All other supplies will be provided.

$30, 10 participants max

Class Kits are available until July 30thth, $35 each.

Please call Cranberry Hill Mercantile at 408-736-9151 to sign up for this class and/or purchase the Class Kit/s.

This card measures 6" x 6".

I used metallic cardstock for the card base. Designer paper is by My Minds Eye, it so gorgeous with all the embossed glitter over it!! Tilda was colored with Copic Markers and cut out with Nestabilites Label Four set. I wanted another layer of the metallic cardstock behind it, but this was the largest shape in the set.. so, I glued it to the cardstock and cut it out by hand.. I stamped the cage one more time and popped it on the foam tape for dimension.. Beautiful Borders on the sides of the card are from Cuttlebug. Ribbon from my stash.. Sentiment inside of the card is by A Muse.

Envelope was made out of Basic Grey paper and I used Enveloper to make it. I used Hero Arts background postage stamp on the corners of the envelope.

All of the supplies used to make this card are available for purchase at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. If you don't live in the area, you can place your order online (for some of the supplies, including Tilda stamps and the Enveloper) or call the store at 408-736-9151 during business hours to make your purchase.
