Hello, Friends and Happy Hump Day! The Midweek Magnolias Design Team has a new challenge for you and with the start of November we are celebrating with a new Christmas Challenge every week before we go on break. This week our Christmas theme is “Winter Wonderland” so I hope you join in for the fun and get all those Christmas cards done.
Hop over to Midweek Magnolias for some lovely inspiration from the DT and leave some love on their blogs. When you join us for the challenge you’ll have a chance to win a fabulous mystery prize from Magnolia Sweden.
My card this week features “Ski Edwin with Snowflakes” from the Christmas Story Collection. I colored Edwin with Copics and used some Stardust Stickles on the snowflakes for extra sparkle. I cut Edwin and his frame from two Quickutz Nesting Scallop dies.
My cardstock is from Bazzill and the DPs are from two Magnolia Holiday paper collections.
My daughter and I recently attended a Scrapbook Expo here in Denver and I got these awesome Tim Holtz Snowflake border and Dimensional folded Snowflake dies from the Sizzix booth. I also won a $20 gift certificate door prize from this booth and added several more dies to my collection. What fun we had! All snowflake dies were run through my Xyron sticker maker then I sprinkled MS clear glitter on the adhesive side before folding and adhering for lots of sparkle. I also added Stardust Stickles to the middles of my folded dimensional snowflakes.
I added some silver embossed sheer ribbon and a bow which is from Michaels. I finished it off with a sweet sentiment from Whimsy Stamps that was heat embossed with gorgeous blue jewel tone embossing powder. Just the right touch to match my blue cardstock and papers.
The inside of my card has similar elements from the front with a Magnolia sentiment that was also heat embossed.
I’m entering this project in the following Challenges:
Make It Monday – Anything Goes
Tilda’sTown – Winter Weather
Through the Craftroom Door – Anything Goes
Cards for Men – Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles – Anything Goes
I hope my card inspires you to join us this week at Midweek Magnolias. Happy crafting…
