Instructions: 1. Stamp Tilda on Cryogen white cardstock. 2. Color Tilda’s face, hat, jeans and bunny with Copic markers. 3. Stamp Tilda on various pieces of pink Perhaps designer paper. 4. Cut out bow, top and shoes. Glue these items with glue stick onto the colored Tilda. 5. Add shadows on the bow, boots and top with pink & gray Copics. 6. Add white highlights with white pen. 7. Color blue shadows around Tilda. 8. Lay the second largest label Nestabilities die onto Tilda and mark where the bow sticks up as shown.

9. Cut out bow. 10. Put the label die back on and run through the Big Shot. 11. Run the largest scalloped square with a piece of Perhaps paper through the Big Shot. 12. Glue Tilda to this scalloped square. 13. Punch out six 1” circles of pink Perhaps paper. 14. Cut a green piece of perhaps 5 ¼” x 4 ¾”. 15. Using the ATG 700, run a piece of tape across the long edge of the green Perhaps paper on the wrong side. 16. Overlapping pink circles, add them along the taped edge of the green paper. 17. Apply the glue tape only to the center of the green and rose card stock and adhere to the yellow card stock. This will help illiminate sewing through too much glue and gunking up your machine. 18. Using the sewing machine, sew around the green paper. 19. Glue the Tilda layers onto the card as shown.

20. Cut out the swirl using the die cut on a dark pink piece of Perhaps paper and glue to card. 21. Cut out rose flower from the die cut using pink felt. 22. Starting at the end without the circle, roll the rose until you get to the circle. Using a glue dot or two, glue the rose together. 23. Apply Stickles to the rose. 24. When the Stickles is dry, spray rose with cherry blossom ink and then just a touch of a spray of the lilac ink. 25. With glue dots, attach the rose to the card and add a yellow dew drop to the center of the rose. 26. Attach the rest of the dew drops and pearls as shown. 27. Attach the pompoms to the bunny’s tail. 28. Tie the green ribbon, trim ends as needed and attach to card with score-tape. 29. The front of the card is now complete. 30. Cut two 5 ½” x 5 ½” of Perhaps designer paper and glue to inside (this will cover the sewing on the inside of the card).

31. Cut two pieces of yellow “Perhaps” paper using the largest label die. 32. Edge the labels with pink petunia ink 33. On one piece of the yellow labels panel, stamp the flowers and the words. 34. Color the flowers with pink Copics. 35. Glue the labels down. 36. Add Stickles to the center of flowers and dots.
