Tilda in Green and Yellow Longstockings


This style of card is one of my favorites--a front-panel side step card. (Template HERE if you're interested.)

I am featuring one of the many adorable images from Magnolia's newest stamp collection--
-Tilda Longstocking from the Once Upon A Time Collection 2013.
The background however is from an older collection--
-Tulip Walkway from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011.

The Tilda image was stamped separately from the background--not masked.  She was cut out and then placed on the background image on pieces of foam tape to give it a more 3-D look (only in real life though...LOL...I don't think you can tell from the picture).

The inside of my card was decorated like this...

and here I am featuring--
-Tilda With Little Pocket from the With Love Collection 2013.

Magnolia stamps are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious--an excellent source for both full-size and mini stamps. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for in the store, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.
