Tilda's Out of This World!

Good morning everyone,

I have a fun Tilda card to share with you today that I made when my Magnolia Club Kit first arrived. I held back sharing it because I didn't think it was very good. It wasn't girly enough. I was torn because the astronaut was a girl and the theme was more boyish. So, I just put it aside. I didn't even put it up on Etsy. So, I'm swallowing hard and hoping that you will enjoy it (or learn from my mistakes, LOL).

I kept the cardstock navy, yellow, and red. On the card's cover, I created the frame using my Nestie dies. Then, I popped up the frame so that Tilda could sit on the edge. Someof the papers are glittery while others are shiny or just plain. On the front, I used plain and shiny papers. I had the silver stars already, so they got put to good use. I took the sentiment and backed it on navy blue glittered cardstock. Tilda's little helmet was lined in Crystal Stickles.


I chose to make the inside playful. I used a rustic pointillism technique for both of the moons. The paper on both the top and bottom have glossy elements printed on them. I added red and orange Stickles to the flames coming from the rocket ship as well as adding crystal Stickles to the porthole. For the bottom section I repeated the frame I used on the front panel. I also added the same silver glittered stars and a cute little gel rocket.


Thank you so much for stopping by. I am so glad you visited! You are such sweethearts for doing so. I hope you will come back soon.

Christine aka blankiefinder said...

This is really cute, Chris! I don't think it's too masculine for Tilda, some girls aren't into 'girly', so this would be perfect for them. I love how you did the inside!

Sandy said...

You're the one that is out of this world pretty Lady. This is such a fun card Chris - I love watching the master at work. Speaking of masters, I cooked a meal the other night that when we sat down to eat it I though -"Chris would be so proud of me!"
