This card I thought was so cool when I first saw the tutorial. I fell in love with it and defo going to be making a lot of these in the future. Its a Pendulum Card so click the link if you fancy giving it a whirl.
I used this as a chance to use hula Tilda. I think her doing her little dance with the pendulum is so cute. I used Distress Inks to colour her and also her bird friend. This stamp is also a Magnolia but since we dont have blue birds here and we have these beautiful pink and grey galahs thats how I coloured him. He is attached to the card with a piece of acetate. So thats my nod to the animal theme.
The papers are from Kaisercraft collection called 'Island Escape' and it is my kinds papers beachy and tropical.
The dies I used to cut the shape of the card are from Spellbinders and just a tad smaller than the ones used in the tutorial. The Kaisercraft collections have great pull out parts and these were the perfect size to pop on the pendulum to decorate the inside of the folded section.
I used dies fore decoration on the body of the card are all from Magnolia. I used little rhinestone flatbacks to add some bling to the centre of the flowers. My fruit angle is in the form of coconuts that are on the palm tree part of the Magnolia die.
