Tilda Gift Card

Hi, I`m back with another Tilda card, this image is Tilda with Balloon from the You are so Special collection.
I`d like to enter this into the new Inky Chicks Challenge, this time around it is Mothers Day or Birthday.

I`m trying to get ahead with my Birthday cards for the year ahead and this one will be for my friend Sally who reads as much as I do and she`s always asking for people to give her book vouchers for Birthdays and Christmas. She`s not a crafter so she won`t see this on my blog!

I`ve coloured Tilda with distress inks and markers and added a bit of glossy accents to the balloon. The backing paper is K&Co water colour bouquet.

I found the sentiment on a website that has free verses for card makers and I just used my home computer to alter the layout of the verse and add a different font.

The front flap under the Tilda image lifts up and I`ve created a space you can slide in a gift card, this one fits any of the credit card size gift cards that are popular nowadays. I just punched two holes with a crop-a-dile and used a craft knife to slit in between them to create the slot for the card.

I also decorated the inside of the flap using an SU sentiment, nesties labels four and Cheery Lynn small fanciful flourish dies.
This isn`t the gift card I bought her, this is one I was given at Christmas and haven`t spent yet! how restrained am I? LOL!! I just used it for the photo.

Products also used are WOC flowers, hobby house flowers SU taffeta ribbon and dotty scallop border punch.

Thanks for looking in, bye for now and happy crafting xx
