Christmas Eve Edwin


So the Christmas card making in this house as like many other of my crafty friends, is in overdrive! I think im nearly there! think is the operative word! So of course I am back with another Christmas card! What else you may cry!

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

Magnolia Forever Challenge blog- No Pink
Holly Jolly Christmas- Ribbon and pearls
Magnolia Mania- Gingham
Marvelous Magnolia Challenge blog- Anything goes with Christmas
Simply Magnolia- Shabby Chic

So here is Edwin...holding the Christmas tree...PUT IT DOWN EDWIN!!! This little cutie is 'Christmas Eve Edwin' from the Winter Wonderland Collection from a few years ago.  I coloured Edwin with Distress Inks.

The papers are from Riddesholm Design's new collection 'Cozy Christmas' its so rustic and traditional its beautiful.

The dies are a mix of Magnolia, Noor! Design and Sizzix. I made the flowers from a Doohickey die, and sprayed them with Glimmer mist and left this to dry. I then added Gesso to them and the red frosted apples from Live and Love Crafts. A acorn charm and some brown frosted berries are added to the poinsettias, in the middle of these I used pearl stamen in this gorgeous red wine colour. I love how cute these acorns are!!! The Gesso was to give a snowy effect.

With the gingham ribbon, I tried something different. The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and I used it to edge the main image, almost like a frame.

On the trees I added 'Shabby White' Fran-tage which i love!!!! I also edged the die cuts with Distress Ink 'Vintage Photo'.

The numbers are cut from a Sizzix die with corrugated card, then dappled some Gesso. When the Gesso dried I sprayed it with the same Glimmer mist.

The  'December' is cut from a Noor!Design die and I embossed the top of the word with 'Shabby White' Fran-tage.

Around the main image, I used Chunky White embossing powder to give a snowy effect.

To finish off I added some pale blue pearl brads and a large pale green pearl brad to beneath the 25.

Hope you have a great rest of the week.
