Fall is in the Air


I finally have a new card to show you. I've been working on this one for a while, but kept getting distracted. Sometimes--not often, thank goodness--I find myself working on a few (too many!!!) projects at a time that nothing gets finished...LOL. Anyway, got a fall card here.

Doesn't this Tilda look like she is having sooo... much fun? She is called Tilda in Leaves from the Magnolia's Fall Collection 2010. I wanted the stamp right away when I first saw this image. You can purchase her from Magnolia-licious, Diana's online store. Diana can also supply you with the Fall Background and the sentiment Fall is in the Air stamps that I've also used here.

I think they call this a side step card. Saw this style of card on Marinanne's blog--she has so many beautiful creations, I get a lot of inspirations from her. I couldn't find a template for this card style anywhere on the internet (and I got tired of looking...hee hee), so I had to make up my own measurements, but it was simple enough to do...LOL. The ones I could find online had the centre panel going back instead of staying at the front. I like this style much better.

I am entering these few challenges with this card:

All That Scraps Magnolia Challenge #3 - Fall with a Fold.

Double Dutch Challenge #55 - Fall has fallen.

A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge #128 - Relish to Embellish.

Creative Card Crew Challenge - Let's Punch It!

I've decorated the inside of my card this way, with another older version of Tilda. This one is called Windy Tilda. I didn't put any other embellishments in the inside, because if I do, I wouldn't be able to close the card flat.

That's it. Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I appreciate your visit and even more for your comments. I just luvvvv reading them. Enjoy your day!

Stamps: Tilda in Leaves and Fall is in the Air sentiment from Fall Collection 2010, Fall Background from Autumn Collection 2008, Windy Tilda from Fall Stamps 2007 Collection--all these are Magnolia stamps and they are available from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. If they are not stock items, Diana will order them in for you. The other sentiments are computer generated.

DP's: Provo Craft Fluttery Things, the skeleton-leaf design paper is from Making Memories Autumn Splendor Collection.

Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Thirteen, a couple of Punch Bunch leaf punches, EK Success retro flower punches medium and small, Joy! Craft cutting dies Branches.

Misc.: Recollections Autumn pearls, Tim Holtz distressing ink pads Vintage Photo.

These are my measurements, if you're interested:

The paper size is 6 inches x 12 inches (15cm x 30cm).

Edited (I finally figured out how to add pdf's...woo-hoo)

Hi Norma!
You are a very clever gal. This is beautiful. The DP's are perfect for this Tilda. Love the color and the inside of the card is like having two cards.
Thanks for the pattern. It's nice to have it all worked out cause I would never be able to figure it out myself.
