Totally Tilda DT Call Challenge- Tilda with Snow Heart Christmas Gift Box and Tag

Good afternoon. First of, I would like to welcome all my new followers and also thank everyone for your lovely comments on my previous posts. Your comments are truly my inspirations.

Totally Tilda is having a DT Call challenge. They are looking for 8 new DT members. The challenge is to make a Tilda card or project using the following photo for color inspiration.


I made a star-shaped Christmas gift box and tag with Tilda images using the above color inspiration.


The box measures about 6"(H) x 6"(W" x 3/4"(D). The stamped images were colored with Copic markers. I added some white flocks to the hats on the tag and Polar White Flower Soft to the main image's hat and snow heart.


I decorated the box with DPs (Basic Grey and Memory Box) and die cuts. I embossed the trees and added some white liquid applique to the picket fence. The lid is attached to the box base with a brad and ribbons; the brad works as a swivel.

The poinsettia is handmade using 3 Magnolia DooHickey poinsettia die cuts. I distressed the die cuts with water. When dried, I sponged the creases with ink, glued the petals together, sprayed with pearl glitter mist, and added a half pearl in the center.


So I will keep my fingers cross and hope they consider my entry :).

Hope you enjoy this visit and thanks very much for stopping by.

Hugs,
Katie
