Christmas...its come early!
How are we all? Weather here is really wintery and we have had some really crazy storms. It definitely feels like it should be Christmas time with the cool nights.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges-
Addicted to stamps and more- Holiday
Alphabet Challenge blog- Jingle bells
Fussy and Fancy challenge blog- Christmas in July
International Art and Soul- Christmas Traditions
Simply Magnolia Challenge blog
So for this card I used one of my all time fave layouts, yep another twist and pop. I used Tilda and little Rudolph for the image. I think little Rudolph is just so cute! I coloured them with Distress inks.
The papers are from an old Kaisercraft collection 'Christmas wishes'. Usually I like traditional Christmas colours but this paper collection is just so beautiful and could resist the gorgeous pinks and mints in it.
On the inside I used a lot of the sentiment papers that came with the collection. I love the deep gold that they have popped in there also, it really sets off the rest of the colours.
I used the Magnolia dies of the rocking horse and the Santa's head. I do love that Santa's head die. I get quite the work out coming up to the festive season!
I popped the angel wings die, also from Magnolia,through an embossing folder and then added some metallic gilding wax to it in gold. I love gilding waxes. They are so much fun to play with and really add an aged effect to the piece.
I popped a bit of glitter on the cuffs of Tilda's coat. I added some gold glitter die cut circles to the tags, again from Magnolia.
The sentiment is from an old collection that Lili of the Valley brought out years ago and this like Santa's head gets a lot of use.
Finally, I popped through some ribbon which had gold glittery thread running through it. This was from Stampin Up last year.
Hope you have a great weekend.
