Pop up Tilda Card

Hi all...
Wish everyone is in their best of crafting spirits !! Today I am here to present my lovely Pop-Up card.
Its everyone's favourite Magnolia's beautiful Tilda.. I am in love with her expressions of life. Wish my daughter grows up that sweet and lovely too.. :P
This is a Pop up card, where two Tilda's are busy celebrating life and best season in life.. Spring...
My tilda's are busy playing with flowers, butterflies and happiness.. 

Being in Love with yourself and your Life .. is the best thing one can achieve..
My card tries to showcase that..
I less prefer light or white skin Tilda.. My Tildas' are more of Indian origin..
Sometimes Indo African, sometimes totally Indian ;)

Check out the different views of my card, then later we discuss the details of its making...

So everyone !! Hope you all liked it.. A lot of work has been done to make this card so vibrant and lively.
Loved making it..

Materials used (a long list indeed. ;) )

  • Cardstock Blue , Brown light and Dark.. Stack is bought from Michael's , U.S.
  • Magnolia's Tilda Stamps 
  • Coloured them using Distress Ink Pads..  (I don't have markers as yet, next buy for sure)
  • Crochet Lace, Pearls and Prima Flowers....
  • Floral oval dies from spellbinders...
  • Monarch butterfly punch, Lace heart punch from M. S., and few from Jef
  • Few Itsy bitsy stickers for tree and flowers
  • Grass is hand cut..  :P
  • Tim Holtz visual artistry collection stamp
  • Embossing folder from Itsy Bitsy
  • Last but not the least... That hand written phrase.. Sorry about that , as I didn't have a matching sentiment stamp, few r on their way... but still its hard to have enough of them... you r always short of those sentiment stamps...

I still feel a lot of refinement can be done, and the outcome can finally be improved.. I love to keep trying things.. Your suggestions are most welcome...
