Hi Once Again :o)

This evening I have made a Magnolia Card for one of the people in my group.
This one has several things on it I have never done before - so I hope the lady will like it?

I have used Gina K 120lb card stock for the actual card base. Then used SU Whisper White for the rest of the card. The Gina K is so thick it is hard to cut with punches if you want to do a good job.

I guess we shall call this my 'White' Card. There is a touch of colour but very little.

I painted Miss Tilda with Copics , used a very soft purple ribbon for her to sit on. Today I made my own flower to see what it would come out like. I stamped a background stamp of tiny flowers on all the pieces before I put the flower together, and I also went around all the edges with a matching Copic pen. I wanted just a 'hint' of colour on this card. I have used my oval scalloped Nestie, my polka dot Cuttlebug embossing folder. Some beautiful new ribbon from SU, as well as a button from my stash., The inside of the card is very very old paper I had, that I thought would look nice with the plain work on the outside.

Here is a picture of the full size front of the card:


Here are a couple of close ups : you will notice that this time I left a small amount of white card stock all around Tilda when I cut her out - that is because I wanted to take my very light mauve Copic and put that as a shadow around her. It is barely noticeable in the pictures - but it does look nice on the actual card............



Here is one of my first hand made flower:



And of course the inside of this one:



As you can see it is a real departure from the last three cards that I have made!!!!

Thank you to everyone who comes to take a peek. I so enjoy hearing from you all.
Hope you all have a good week, now that holidays are over and it is time for back to school and work........

Love Candy

Oh my gosh this quite took my breath away. it is so, so dainty and so many elements make the card incredibly interesting, a sort of shabby chic. I don't have the heart nestabilities but I do have a scallop heart punch so I will try to make this flower. It is gorgeous!
hugs,
Diana
