This next card made for my "Healing" art project used Tilda with Letter. While searching for greeting card sentiments, I came across "A hug in a letter to make you feel better."
Well, what a perfect match! So I began the card; this time I needed one with purples in it. I found a tutorial to make this Tri-Fold Shutter Card at SplitCoast Stampers so I decided to give it a try.
After doing a bazillion cuts and folds (okay, so I exaggerate; it was only a million or so) I finally got the thing put together, but not before my cat Dakotah knocked it around a few times, causing much swearing on my behalf.
The paper I used was My Mind's Eye Street Market Carefree "Graceful" Elegant Print / Poised Purple Paper (# 291048). I used Bazzil Basics Bouquet and Purple Palisades which was inked using ColorBox chalk ink.
I wrapped a ribbon around the middle bottom panel and added an old pressed purple paper flower I had picked up at an art store going out of business years ago. I re-painted the center, and added some Copics for highlights and shadows (Y000 and V12). The sentiments were printed off and coloured with Y000.
Four Martha Stewart punches were used: The butterfly, deco fan, branch and leaves punches.
My Cuttlebug was used with Spellbinders round and scalloped round dies for behind Tilda, raised on foam for some dimension.
Finally, a few pearls were added for a touch of bling.
Here are the Copics used in this project:
Skin: E000, E00, R20
Hair: Y11, Y21, E97, E99
Dress and tights: V09, V12, V15, RV000, RV00
Envelope: R20, C0, C1
