Tilda Ready to Travel
Here is my Design Team project for the September Challenge on Magnolia-licious Highlites. Becca Feeken came up with a fun challenge of using one of the new Bon Voyage Stamps and a suitcase or backpack. I've taken Suzanne Dean's cute gift card suitcase pattern and enlarged it to fit an A2 card.
Water colored the Tilda's with Distress Inks and used a couple of the DooHickey dies. The pretty paper is from Magnolia too. Did use a bit more embellishments on this project than the last!!! :) Used ribbon for the handle and attached with silver brads. Sponged some white acrylic paint along the edges of the paper and the tag die cuts. Embossed the tags with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and now wished I would have also done the scallop circle corners too. Maybe next time!

Please check with the very nice Diana for all the Magnolia products here at the Magnolia-licious store. Lots of new stamps, papers and dies to add to our Maggie collections!!!
This project couldn't have been easier with the use of the Scor-Pal. Diana is the creator of this fabulous tool and with Suzanne's easy directions, my first try of this box turned out perfectly! You can find the Scor-Pals along with the new must have Scor-Buddy here.
My dimensions for the larger suitcase are: 7 3/4" x 12"
Score your card stock on the short side (7 3/4") at 1" and 6 3/4"
Score your card stock on the long side (12") at 1", 5 1/2", 6 1/2", and 11"
Hope you will give this challenge a try! It was lots of fun and just think of the possibilities!!!
Enjoy every day!!!
