Secret Tilda - Birthday Card

 I made this card for a family member who has a birthday coming up. I wanted to change the layout a bit from my most recent cards just to do something different. I sometimes make the card bases and then have them ready for when I need to make cards. Then all I have to do is pick the image, color it and embellish the card as desired. I made this card base a while ago so I forget which paper this is but the tilda stamp I purchased from the Magnolia Store and she is called "Secret Tilda". The sentiment stamps are from Close To My Heart and you can shop online here. The image is colored with copic markers

Enjoy and thanks for looking!


  1. How clever of you to have the card bases already completed and just waiting for an image! This is adorable! This little Tilda is just so versatile. Your coloring is wonderful and sure to be a hit with your family member.
