Peaceful Tilda sticky notes holder

This Christmas card already reached it's destination so I can show it to you. :) I wanted to make something special for a good friend of mine. We met online through a crafting forum and then started to write to each other almost every day. Our first messages were only about crafting but now I feel like we know each other for ages and just can't wait to get a new email. :) This one's for you hun! I hope you like it (I must say you are the toughest critic I know). ;)

I made a sticky notes holder card. I saw a few pictures on the internet and wanted to try it. It's very easy, you can make it as big as you wish. I made it 13,5 x 13,5 cm. It's easy but it will take you a few hours to complete. The base of the holder is cut out of 300 g paper and then everything is glued and sewn together. Flowers are covered with clear rock candy glitter so they all sparkle!

For this card I used:

  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design - Vintage frost basics
  • stamp: Peaceful Tilda (Winter wonderland coll., 2013), We wish you a Merry Christmas sentiment.
  • die: Doohickey - spruce, Marianne design - snowflake
  • paper doily
  • flowers from I am roses, Wild orchid crafts, LLC
  • stickles glue (stardust) 
  • white lace
  • pearl string
  • clear rock candy glitter
  • TH crackle paint.

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Magnolia Down Under: Anything goes
  2. Bunny zoe's crafts: Wings
  3. Dutch magnolia lovers (WINNER): Birthstone (diamond)
  4. Time for Magnolia challenge: Anything goes

  9. hello tamika,
    very beautiful notes holder, thankyou for joining us at the magnolia mania, greetings from sonja

  10. Tale Tildika je pa moja, no, narejena zame. Tamara, hvala ti še od tu, ;). Že na fotografijah so tvoje voščilnice in drugi izdelki krasni, zdaj, ko imam tole lepotičko doma, pa lahko napišem, da jim tudi fotografije delajo malce krivice.
    Perfektno pobarvan motiv, papirji, izbrani z okusom, bogato okrasje, zanimiva postavitev, skratka vse štima. Jo vsi, ki pridejo k meni, občudujejo in hvalijo.
    Hvala, res, lp, Saša
