Ice Tilda

Hiya everyone!

Hope we are all well here. Im finally back after a few internet issues- boy did i miss my blog!!!! So when ive been waiting ever so NOT patiently I have been crafting away at our Christmas cards!

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

Live and Love Crafts Inspiration blog- Tic Tac Toe ( Full house except bell)
Midweek Magnolias - Anything goes
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge Blog- Winter
Time for a Magnolia Challenge- Pastel Christmas
Craft Heaven Shop Inspiration Blog- Layers with an option- Christmas

So this card had me feeling all festive but mainly all wintery!!! So I used 'Ice Tilda' for this card and coloured her with Distress Inks.  The paper is from the fabulous Noor Design 'Shabby Christmas' love the gentle colours in this.

The card itself is a pop up card- yes you read that right its been a lonnnnnnggggg time since ive made one but with time on hands being sans internet this kept me out of mischief. Although I did have a fight with a die cut fence!

For the pop up aspect I used a inch or so wide piece of white cardstock which is folded and placed behind Tilda. This then allows Tilda to fold down and then 'pop' back up when the card is opened. So easy but so effective.

On the front of the cards I used died from Noor! design, Tim Holtz and Magnolia.  The flowers are hand rolled from one of the dies from the latest Doohickey collection.  The layers are on mounting tape which makes the card 3D. The numbers are cut from a Sizzix die and covered with crackle paint and then sprinkled with Stampendous ' Crushed Glass' in silver.  I added some lace from Live and Love Crafts which is under the Tim Holtz Present die.  The shabby seam binding ribbon is also from Live and Love Crafts.  The ribbon is from my stash.

On the leaves I added some Prills, which are teeny tiny beads. These are gorgeous!!!! On the heart tags, behind the numbers, I covered these in 'Shabby White Fran-tage' as everyone wants more sparkle at Christmas!

The middle of the flowers I added some Kaisercraft sparklets. The apple is frosted and from Live and Love Crafts. On the parcels I added some cream flat back pearls just to show the edge of the parcel, this is edged in Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo' for a more vintage looking present.

On the inside I used the background die from the latest Doohickey collection, isnt this just fabulous!!! On it I used chunky shabby white Fran-tage so  it looks more like snow that the detailed embossing powder. I double cut the snowflakes from the Noor! design snowflake die and stuck these together so you see the pattern on both side as the design paper itself isnt double sided.

Behind the stars on the background die, are some silver sequins, so they twinkle like stars.

There is the fence I had a fight with!!! I covered this and the trees behind it with 'Diamond Dust' for that frosted Christmas tree feeling.

On the fence, I added a lantern charm, Tilda is skating at night so she needs to see!!!

The middle of the card, the 'ice rink' is die cut and then mounting tape was added to make an extra layer. The Tag is a doohickey and this is for the Christmas message.

Hope you have a great day!
