Christmas Tilda with Vintage roses

Hey there!!!
Hope we are all good and getting festive? 
I have finally got all my cards sorted- international ones posted, Aussie ones next week. Phew! what a job!!!! but its worth it! 

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges-

Completely Christmas - Anything goes with a twist, lets see some embossing
Deep Ocean Challenge Blog- Shabby 
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia - Use a die cut
Magnolia Down Under Challenge Blog- Holly and bells
Tilda's town neighbourhood challenge blog - Joys of the season
Live and Love Crafts inspiration and challenge blog- Favorite Festive Christmas combo 

I am here today with little Tilda. The stamp I used is Christmas Tilda with vintage roses. Isnt she just delightful ♥. I coloured Tilda with Distress Inks. I am the first to admit that i find red hard no matter what the medium but I shall persist and get there. Anyhoo! 

The papers that I used for this card are from ever fabby Maja from their Christmas collection last year. I love the traditional colours. The dies are a mix of Magnolia, Memory box and Impression Obsession. I just love this Santa Silhouette. Oh and the gingerbread men!  how cute are these.  I used some embossing on the Christmas behind the main image. It is embossed in hologram gold powder. On the  bouquet she is holding, i used red beads for the flowers. The flower is held together by a rhinestone brad.

Speaking of flowers, this is my first real try at making my own. Had the dies a bit and finally managed to give it a go and get something resembling a flower! hehe! Behind the main image is some cheesecloth to add some texture. 

I added some rose coloured rhinestones and to finish off some green shabby seam ribbon. 

Hope you like my card. 

Glitter Words

The sentiment is from LOTV and also embossed in holgram gold.

  5. Hi Davinia,
    I don't own many Tildas, but this is one of them from the time when I used to buy stamps. I've realized it makes no sense as they just end up in drawer, uninked for ages. :-) Very festive card; hope you'll have a lovely Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year.
