I've been so busy getting ready for the holidays that I've not been able to find much papercrafting time but am back full throttle and plan to keep the mojo flowing! Here's my second card in as many days for another couple wonderful Magnolia challenges...I just love the colors of the challenge at Magna-licious and decided to use it on this most untraditional Christmas giftcard holder.
I made the card for my sweet DIL Michelle for her pollyanna for next weekend's family Christmas celebration here at my home. It's also an easel card. As I was editing these photos, I thought about the composition of the card and think those I like best are usually distressed and/or a montage that looks like things fell out of a drawer on to the cardstock. I think this one's in that category.
This was my first time inking up my new "Secret" Tilda. I love this stamp because it works so well for Christmas and birthdays. For a little fun I used Glossy Accents on the box bow to give it a little pizzazz. I hope you can see it in the photos.
In addition to the Tilda stamp I used Whimsy Christmas sentiments, and a $1 stamp from the craft store. The materials included Bazzill cardstock I cut with Nestabilities, MS snowflake & evergreen punch, with lots of embellies tossed in that include Recollection snowflake buttons, Prima flowers & centers, K & Co. felt stickers, foam glittery snowflakes from a $1 bin at the craft store and Imaginisce's Christmas Cottage (I won the whole collection with a challenge on Facebook.) plus scraps of paper. That about covers it. I used Copics for coloring Tilda and highlighting the "Don't Open Til..." stamp. If I can identify Copic colors please shoot me an email!
