Lots of Layers at Midweek Magnolias

Happy Wednesday, Friends! I am here with a Midway Reminder for Midweek Magnolias challenge. You still have another week to join us for...

Lots of Layers!

My card features “Tilda with Christmas Candle” from the 2012 Christmas Story collection. I added lots of layers by using double matted designer paper panels by My Mind’s Eye Vintage Christmas, multiple layers of lace and a pretty frame for Tilda cut with my Cameo.

I used a bit of bling and glitter on several elements for that festive holiday look. Tilda is colored with Copics and soft golden hue shadowing for the background. Her Santa cap has Glossy Accents sprinkled with Glamour Dust on the fur for dimension. I used some gold stickles on the buttons of her trousers and a little red stickles on the candelabra.

Here’s a close-up of Tilda.
