A Magnolia Tilda Father's Day Card

With Father's Day quickly approaching, I thought I better get myself into gear and make a card! So, I hunkered down and got to work! I used one of the new Sweet Rainbow stamps of Tilda and put a different spin on the card. Instead of having a little boy on the front, I put gorgeous little Tilda while continuing to keep the card masculine by using "manly" (LOL) colors - brown, green, and grey.

I chose to use Basic Grey papers, Bazzill cardstock, Robin's Nest dew drops, Prima flowers, machine stitching, embossing, punching, and anything else I could think of! I had some fake cattails, so I used them to help set the stage for the fishing theme of the front.

Here are the shots:









The little charm says, "World's Greatest Dad." Some elements are on pop dots. I love that little stamp! Tilda just is too cute!

Thanks for stopping by. Sorry for the quick post. I hope you liked my card and will come back soon!

XO,
Chris
