I am calling this card 'Fall Offering', My Midnight Madness SC # 13, YES 13!!!

This card Rocks and is by far the heaviest card I have created yet, (and the most expensive, LOL) the squares are glass tiles in orange tones in time for fall, I know I know but it is not that far off. My BIL lives in Alaska and the leaves up there are starting to turn already. This is a stamped image then handcolored. Ribbon, layered flowers, leaves and a button was added for all those details we love.

I created an extra thick envelope for this card, if you need a template to create an extra thick envelope, Priscilla - our wonderful host at Midnight Madness is offering templates for purchase on her site right here. I love the front with the floral design embellishment and I shot a photo of the inside of this card, doesn't it make you wish for fall?

Thank you for your visit and please let me know what you think of using Glass tile on Your card. See you all next week for Midnight Madnesses next Sketch Challenge.

  5. Jane, I LOVE the glass tiles! Another of my favorite crafts is mosaic art. I've only dabbled in it a little because it's so much more messy. But I do love the look of anything mosaic! Your card is really awesome! :) Michelle

  6. Jane very creative use of the tiles. Beautiful job on painting the cute little mouse! Just a thoroughly wonderful card!

  7. What a great Fall card. Yes, it will be here before we know it. I know how heavy these cards can get and you did such a great job with these tiles. You placed them so nicely and the colors are perfect. The inside and the envelope are beautiful as well. You really put alot of work into this card!! Great outcome.


  8. Oh WOW Jane...all those little glass tiles...must have taken you ages to make! I do love this card though, the little mouse is adorable and the colors are fabulous...fall in Alaska...can I go there???
    Fantastic card and so well made. Love the inside and envi too!

  9. Your card is beautiful both inside and out. Man I do not want to be you mailing this card....if you lived here the post office would charge you five They charge me 2-1/2 times the normal price cause my cards are thick they say and cannot go through the machines....I found them out....they put them through the machines anyway!!!! Wonderful job, I really enjoyed looking at it.
