Doo Bee Pops Tilda Goes Mini at Magnolia-licious!

Good Morning Sweet Readers,

Today is Mini Monday at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog! I just love working with the Mini Magnolias! They take no time to color and look soooooo cute! Mini Mondays are set aside for you to get out a Magnolia Mini Stamp and ink it up! I made an adorable hanging tag card featuring #3004 -- Doo Bee Pops Tilda. Let me tell you a little about my hanging tag card.

I didn't really want to make a card this time, so I thought I'd make a hanging tag of sorts. I began by creating the base. It was easy - just like a card! LOL Included on the base is a pocket. Inside the pocket is a hidden tag. I used alphas from my stash. They are a pretty apricot color, too. I pulled some apricot colored seam binding, some dies, and pretty flowers from my supplies. I painted Tilda and added green Kindyglitz to the balloon for some sparkle. Here is a photo of the base:

Here's where my humor comes in! For the hidden tag, I used a Sizzix die that I've had for years. To the tag's surface, I added a lattice Cheery Lynn Die. I trimmed the lattice to fit the tag and made sure I glued each little edge really well. Then, I pulled out my Quickutz alpha dies and cut the letters. I did triple the alphas so that they look like chipboard. Next, I added some die cuts (bird, vine) as well as a couple of teeny tiny flowers. For the finishing touch, I added a metal charm and centered a pearl.

Here is a close up of Doo Bee Pops Tilda:

Hi Chris,
Your cards always inspire me so much.
Love the beautiful colours you have used on this one and all the gorgeous die cuts :o)
Tilda is perfectly coloured and I love your pop up tag!
You could mail this one to a friend so she has to make one for you and go back and forth for a long time :o)
Big Hugs, Candy
