So, I've really been in the mood lately to make some Christmas cards. We had some really hot days last week and I'm sooooooooo enjoying the cooler weather we got this weekend. It makes me realize how close we are to Christmas already. I can't believe how time flies! Anyway, I was asked about some Christmas cards the other day and had so much fun when I sat down to make them. Here's the first of them...
This little cutie is #3002 Unwrapped Tilda by Magnolia. Looks like we caught her in the act! She's sitting in front of #443 Christmas Tree. I also created my own dp with #645 Silent Night Background. They're all available at Magnolia-licious. I strongly encourage you to get over there and get yours as it'll really get you into the pre-holiday spirit.
The gorgeous dp's are from BG's new 'Jovial' collection and I just love them! All cs is by Bazzill. The beautiful green velvet ribbon is from my stash. I bought a bunch of bty velvet ribbon in Christmas colors from Archiver's and I'm so excited about using them. I think they're stunning! The extra warmth they add is really beautiful. I found the little green gems in my jewelry bead drawer. I keep an assortment of jewelry beads handy "just in case" and they really came in handy. In case you're wondering, I stamped the Silent Night Background with Ranger Distress Ink - Fired Brick and then distressed it with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo. I think it looks perfect with the dp's.
Here's a closeup of Tilda. I was in such a hurry when making this card that I was just grabbing Copics and dabbing into inks and didn't write down what I was using. I cleaned up really quickly and took the photos without a thought about the details. Sorry!
That's all I have for today. Don't forget the Magnolia-licious DT has another challenge coming up on Friday, October 1st. It's my turn for a sketch or project idea and I think it's another fun one. So stay tuned for that!
