As I started to look through my stamps, I had very few stamps that were old/new similar positions. That was hard to believe since I have 5 storage bins of Magnolia stamps :D :D I am a happy woman!! I had two that were very similar - Study Tilda from 2008 So Heavenly/School/Travel collection and Editor Tilda from 2012 Turning Leaves. Perfect!!!
Then came papers. Since I have several new paper pads that I'm not yet very familiar with yet, I sat down and looked through all of them. Editor Tilda was pretty easy to find the perfect DP. Study Tilda took a lot longer.
After finding just the right paper, I colored the Tilda's and something for each of them to sit on. After all that, I still didn't have any idea of how to pull the two Tilda's together. Then I ended up deciding two cards would work better than one.
Here is the first card and I love it!!
The base is Stampin' Up Crumb Cake. The second layer is an old paper from Prismatic Herbal Garden Multi Pack. The designer paper is from my brand new The Primrose stack from DCWV. This page was perfect - newspaper print on the bottom and beautiful roses and swirls on the top with a diagonal line of glittery triangles separating the sections. Love it!!
Editor Tilda is sitting on Books from 2008 So Heavenly/School/Travel collection and is mounted on the 2 papers from the Prismatic pack cut using Nestabilities Labels One . The gardenia, which I've had for a long time, is from Magnolia; the tiny Gypsophil and roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and are brand new.
I really liked the look of the papers offset to one side rather than trying to get an even margin all around.
The little tag used for the sentiment is from the Primrose stack, mounted on the Prismatic paper. The sentiment is old and I've forgotten where it's from. the corners were punched using a Fiskers punch that has 4 corner designs on it. The tiny pink Gypsophil flowers are brand new from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Thank you for sticking with me through the long description of the creative process for this card. I am entering this card in Tilda's Town Challenge #52 - Something Old, Something New. Please leave a comment to let me know what you think about this old/new card!!
