Apple & Cherries ~ Hugs and Kisses

Ooooooone more :-) just ooone more card using a image from my new stamps :-) okay.. promise tomorrow i will have something different. It is quite obvious this one of Magnolia’s new stamp releases “Tilda with apples” so i wanted to talk about the layout on this card a bit more.

As i stamped the image onto paper, i noticed that Tilda is a bit smaller than some other Magnolia Tilda images. Usually i would have scaled my card down to probably  5.5 x 5.5 size, but that would have meant that there would not been many apples visible from the Design Paper i wanted to use on this card.
I still made a 6x6 card, but instead layered my image with 2 additional mats (one from kraft cardstock and one from chocolate chip) to give the illusion the image is bigger and takes more space on the card front. I also filled the space with a bow using one of my wonderful delicious silk ribbons. OMG… this ribbon binds wonderfully and is soooo soft.
