A new inspirational challenge for December at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. One week earlier! Don't worry though if you're still working on a project for last week's colour challenge, because that one is still open for another week. So we have the 2 challenges open at the same time for an entire week. We're starting this today, so we can concentrate on Christmas as we get closer to the big day. This new challenge will run until January 10, 2011, the day before January's first colour challenge. This is Chrissy's month and she has chosen the theme white-on-white--at least that is how I interpreted it, so I went with that in mind...LOL.
I had wanted to do something like the card below ever since I saw all the Tilda angels in the pre-order list, but what I had imagined in my mind was...navy night sky, golden moon and stars. Hmm...maybe I will still do that at a later date. But for now, this being a white-on-white theme, this is a tri-shutter card that I came up with.
This is what my card looks like if I flattenned it out.
If you haven't made a tri-shutter card before, this is an overhead view of the card. There are quite a few tutorials on the internet. Here is a link to just one of those tri-shutter card tutorials.
I used white bristol board paper. I have a Sizzix die cuts (Stars #2) that cut out 4 different sizes of stars: the smallest one, the 3rd largest one and 2 others in between those 2 sizes. The rest of the stars--there are 9 stars in total--I cut them out by hand using a ruler and a craft knife. I made them in 1/8-inch increments until I have the star big enough for Tilda to sit on.
To make this into a crescent moon--so Tilda have something to sit on--I used a smaller circle die cut for the hole/opening in each of the 7 circles. I used the same size on each and made sure that at one point, the edge of the smaller circle met the edge of the large circle. When I gluing the circles together one by one, I lined them up by this hole/opening.
I used lots of glitter on this card. I've added them to the moon, the big star, the angels' wings, the star at the end of Tilda's wand and her halo.
