Santa Edwin and his letter


How are we all? Ive had a busy day yesterday sending all our international Christmas cards, boy i was all stamped out and im not talking rubber stamps! So they have gone, now on to the Aussie cards. So I made this card as it seemed rather in tune with what I was up to yesterday! 

So I am here today with a card that I am in love with ♥. This is my fave stamp from the new Magnolia collection 'waiting for Christmas'. I was hanging out for this stamp for soooooo long! And I think it might be my fave Edwin stamp of all time! 

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

Completely Christmas - Anything goes but let add a twist- lets see some embossing
lovely hAnglar or sweet Magnolia- Use a Die cut
Magnolia Down Under Challenge blog - Holly and bells
Tilda's town neighbourhood blog - Joys of the Seaon
Live and Love crafts - Fave Christmas combo 
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog - Anything goes Christmas
Time for a Magnolia Challenge - Fave stampEdwin as Santa! 

So I FINALLY gave in and used the gnome papers out of the new Maja collection. I have been hanging on to these as a) i just LOVE gnomes and b) thought it would be perfect for Edwin. Kinda reminded me of him dressed like Santa! Hehe! So I layered up some of the DPs and backed them with white card stock. I like traditional colours for my Christmas, well now I do im not so much the riot of colour that I used to be lol. I love the classic red and white combo for the season, and for once I havent used any green! Nor have I used any flowers. 

I used the gorgeous dies from Magnolia, Memory box and the awesome present stack from Tim Holtz. So they stood out I edged them with DI 'Vintage Photo'. On the stocking I added little red beads so it looked like and embroidered stocking. 

On the main image I masked the two stamps together and coloured them both with Copics. I cant for the life of me remember the name of the envelope! But its an old one and ive had it for ages and Edwin just sat so cute on top! On the holly on the envelope I added some more red beads to make it look like berries. 

I embossed some Chunky White fran-tage around the image so it looks like snow and stamped some postal marks as Edwin is sitting on a letter! 

To the card body I added some lace and red shabby seam binding from the ever gorgeous Live and Love Crafts. Some red glitter sticky ribbon and some cheesecloth finished it off . 

The sentiment is from LOTV and stamped in DI 'Festive berries'. To finish off Edwin I added a little white bell also from Live and love crafts, and some rose coloured Rhinestones from Kaisercraft. Oh and a button on the red ribbon! 

I hope you like my card!
