Tilda Dreams of the Nutcracker Sweet
I hope everyone is having a good week. It has got very cold here. They are talking about snow tomorrow. So not looking forward to that....
Today for GDT project for 7 Kids College Fund Challenge "Bling" I created an altered cigar box. I just love this paper it is so festive and beautiful. I covered the box with Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet paper and inked the edges of the blue paper with broken china and the cream paper with antique linen distress ink to give it a vintage feel. The border was created by twisting pearls with the navy blue translucent ribbon and a rich burgundy rose trim as the outside border. I used the large flourish die from Cherry Lynne, frosty border & crystal snowflake from Memory Box and snowflake die from Marianne.
The ballerina on the front was cut from the Graphic 45 paper (lots of fussy cutting). One of my favorite parts of the box is the tag I created with Ballerina Tilda I thought the cutouts from the paper were perfect for the tag and this sweet Tilda. She was colored with Copic Markers Skin E000, E00, R20, Dress & Shoes B91, B93, B95, B97, Hair E31, E27, E50. I added glitter and bling to her crown.
I also added bling to all the snowflakes and there is a hint of glitter on the ballerina, nutcracker and ballet shoes more fussy work.
Here is a close up of Tilda the inside cover of the box:
