It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…Wow, can you believe it? There’s only 13 days until Christmas and I got all of my shopping done finally. I shopped online a lot this year instead of braving the crowds.
I made another card last night and finished it up this afternoon. This is one of my favorite Magnolias, Unwrapped Tilda. She was the star in a lot of my cards this year.
I created a gate fold card this time just to mix it up a bit. I used some pretty pattern papers from DSWV’s Christmas paper pad.
Here's the inside of the card. I used my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch around the page. I absolutely love these products. They are so versatile and inspires my creativity.
This is a closeup of Tilda. I used some gold tissue paper, crumpled it up then glued it to her box for added texture and dimension. And never forget the Stickles. When I think of Christmas I always think of glitter.
Here are the Copics I used to color Tilda. When I first started to match the reds in the pattern paper, low and behold none of the reds matched. Then I realized it's more brown than red so her dress was colored with the E0 series.
I'm submitting this card for the following Challenges.
My loving husband Bruce and I live on a ranch in Sedalia, Colorado. We have 3 grown children with growing families of their own and 7 beautiful grandchildren.
I love art and crafts of many kinds. I've been scrapbooking since 1991 but I still have some very old scrapbooks that I made as a teen. I've always been very creative and artistic in drawing, oil, acrylic, and water color painting, sewing and needle craft. I started making cards in 2004 and truly fell in love with this hobby. I enjoy all crafts but scrapbooking and cardmaking is truly my passion. I enjoy being able to share my gift with friends and family by sending them my cards and scrapbooks.
