Country Tilda Sitting On Grandpa's Porch | By Donna

by - 8/22/2017

Hello, everyone!
I'm here today on Swedish House Crafts blog with my "Tuesday Craft Smorgasboard" DT creation.
I have made a card featuring Country Tilda masked with Grandpa's Porch. I have used lots of other gorgeous products from Swedish House Crafts on my card.
Links to the products used are in the text, and can be found at the end of my post.

For the shape of my card I used GoKreate large frame frilly #5, and Maja Design "Walking In The Forest" papers.
I have die cut, and layered the papers using Gummiapan stitched squares, and Gummiapan stitched banners, and matted them onto the base to create the layout of my card.
The pretty lace that I have adhered behind the image is from my craft stash.

I coloured the image with Prismacolor and polychromos pencils, and used Gummiapan Angelpost to stamp the top left, and right corners.
I used a Gummiapan stitched square die to cut the image.
I die cut another of the stitched squares using the design papers, and stitched around the outside using white top stitch thread. I then matted the image onto it with 3D foam tape. I die cut a third square, again using the design papers, and adhered that under the second stitched square.
The butterfly that I have cut out is included in one of the sheets of "Walking In The Forest" papers.
The pearls are from my stash.

I used Gummiapan flowers die, and "Walking In The Forest" papers to make the flowers.
To make the flowers crumpled, I first sprayed them with water, then curled them together, and let them dry. Once the flowers were assembled, I used a pricking tool to make a hole in the centre, and pushed some stamens through.
I used Doohickey country leaves dies to cut the foliage that I have placed between the flowers.

I filled a corked glass bottle with Pikaby mini beads, and tied a bow around it with vax cord.

Inside the card is decorated too.

I hope I have inspired you to get creative?
