Bingo! @ Totally Tilda

Morning blogland,
I'm here for the third day running (can you believe it, 'cos I can't!) and today I have my second creation for
 following Dawn's totally brilliant 
Bingo Grid! (see below)
 I love a game of bingo (but only if it's mixed with craft - I'm no good at the proper game, I always get flustered when the numbers are called so fast and I am like six numbers behind lol!).

I decided to make a napkin fold card, to compliment my sepia coloured Tilda in Ugg boots that I coloured last week (scroll down to see my Fussy and Fancy card which has another sepia coloured Tilda) I did three in total in one sitting and so it may seem like I did a job lot of them! You could say I got carried away, but I love sepia colouring (only using DI Walnut stain)

This is a picture of the card tied closed with the image attached to a belly band and a tag tucked in behind the image on the left:

I started with an 8" square piece of kraft which I scored at 2" and 6", turned the cardstock and scored again at the same intervals. I folded at the score lines and opened it out again.  Next I folded the corners in to the centre and unfolded again before using matching MS punches to PATP. The card had to be folded and coaxed into shape before finally turning back the top corners. I then decorated the panels with coordinating DP's.

In the bottom of the card I added a Spellbinder nestie Fleur de Lis diecut from more kraft and both this and the Magnolia doohickey tag were overstamped with an SU circular birthday stamp.

I made the Tilda image into a tag shape, edged on the left with Magnolia doohickey Tilda's lace border with some lace stapled to the top. I used the same MS punch to edge the belly band and the Spellbinders foliage leaves are cut from more coordinating paper. 

I used the diagonal line of the bingo grid: gems, punches and flowers, although I did also use other elements of the grid too. Just to remind you, you can use any line horizontally, vertically or diagonally, combine more than one line or use a 'full house' and use all the elements on the grid.

Totally Tilda are sponsored this fortnight by:

with this fab prize: Bev's bag of ribbons


Thanks for taking a look at my project and hope it inspires you to join us at Totally Tilda to play Bingo! Please take a look at what my amazing teamies have created for this challenge, everyone's a masterpiece.

Challenges I would love to enter with my card:
Tilda's Town - Choose your passion CAS or Fussy and Fancy ( Those of you who know me will agree that it has to be Fussy and Fancy all the way!)
Just Magnolia - What's new (I used my newest Tilda in Ugg Boots stamp)
Bunny Zoes - Distressing 

Happy Crafting and I will see you next Saturday for more Allsorts fun.
