This card was made for my friend who is a SF Giants fan. Every year we have a friendly NLW division challenge. I was happy to find Tilda in a baseball uniform and deck her out in Diamondbacks colors for an optimistic “start of the season” greeting. The inside of the card says “2012 National League West Champions” and has a Diamondbacks banner I copied from their website. Too bad spring training is off to a dismal start for my Snakes, but they’ll pull it together!!
It’s difficult to see in the picture but Tilda is pieced and layered using 3D clear pop dots, and has a just a bit of red glitter on her uniform. She is 3 layers at her cap and hand for added dimension. Someday I’ll get better at photographing cards.
