Happy Tuesday, Friends. We have another new challenge for you at Magnolia-licious. This time our theme is…
Christmas in July!
It is so HOT this week, in the upper nineties, that I would love to have some cool weather.
My Christmas card for the challenge features “Peaceful Tilda” from the 2013 Winter Wonderland collection. My designer papers are from Fancy Pants and cardstock is Bazzill. I used a lot of glitter on my card elements. The card is a pop up gift card holder. I've wanted to make one of these so I decided a Christmas theme is the perfect occasion. Check out the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. I easily modified the dimensions for a square card.
Here’s the card when you open it. I added a closure strap so that it lies flat in an envelope.
Here’s a close up of Tilda. I colored her with Copics and used a little Gold stickles on her wings and halo.
Leave us a comment on any of the DT’s blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a weekly prize. The winner is announced every week during the “W”ednesday post.
Come and join us for the challenge and you may have a chance to win a Surprise from the Magnolia-licious store.
