Gift Giving Tilda Birthday Card

This is the image I had used for the watercolor background example. It is from Magnolia stamps: Gift Giving Tilda. I used Spellbinders Nestibilities to cut out the image and the purple Fleur de Lis frame behind it. I printed the sentiment, stamped the circle of hearts and cupcake (colored with Copics) and cut it and the lacy border out with Nestibilities. The fancy white design I cut using my Cricut (Art Philosophy Cartridge by Close to My Heart). The flower layers and leaves I cut out using Sizzix Dies (Tim Holtz, Tattered Florals, the leaves were from Sizzlits Decorative Strip Die Autumn Gatherings). I painted them with Distress Crackle Paint. The card and envelope were both cut with Sizzix Pro dies (A7 size). The card stock is from Bazzill.
