Apple & Cherries ~ Hugs and Kisses

Ooooooone more :-) just ooone more card using a image from my new stamps :-) okay.. promise tomorrow i will have something different. It is quite obvious this one of Magnolia’s new stamp releases “Tilda with apples” so i wanted to talk about the layout on this card a bit more.

As i stamped the image onto paper, i noticed that Tilda is a bit smaller than some other Magnolia Tilda images. Usually i would have scaled my card down to probably  5.5 x 5.5 size, but that would have meant that there would not been many apples visible from the Design Paper i wanted to use on this card.
I still made a 6x6 card, but instead layered my image with 2 additional mats (one from kraft cardstock and one from chocolate chip) to give the illusion the image is bigger and takes more space on the card front. I also filled the space with a bow using one of my wonderful delicious silk ribbons. OMG… this ribbon binds wonderfully and is soooo soft.

Die Karte ist wunderschön gestaltet und ich finde es gut, daß du bei 6x6 geblieben bist, so kommt alles gut zur Geltung.
Deinen leichten Schatten-Hintergrund hinter Tilda finde ich toll.
Wie hast du den gemacht?

Liebe Grüße, Nadine
