Tilda with tag gifts


Can you believe how fast the weekend goes by? It feels like a minute and there's Monday again. :) Well, I've been a busy bee over the weekend - I made two cards. One of them I'll be showing you today.
It's Christmas Challenge over at Tilda's Town and I just couldn't help myself and made an early Christmas card. When I go outside it's like 'Winter is coming'. It's freeeeeeezing .....
I didn't used traditional red-green-gold colors. Instead I used soft blue-green or mint with white. I used a lot of frantage and DooHickey Dies cuts on this one. Papers are again from First Edition, one of their Christmas packs, I don't know the exact name. Shape of the card was cut out with my Silhouette Cameo. :) I made the rolled roses myself with Marianne die Chinese roses. Aren't they gorgeous?

So, here's my first Christmas card in 2013:

For this card I used:

  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: First edition papers - Stocking fillers
  • stamp: Tilda with tag gifts (A Christmas story, 2012)
  • dies: Magnolia Doohickey -leaf & Swirl, peacock feathers, Vintage Box Lacing Coffee, Marianne - Chinese rose
  • flowers from Wild orchid crafts, I am roses
  • cheesecloth
  • liquid pearls - color opal
  • stickles glue (stardust)
  • white half pearls
  • TH crackle paint (picket fence) 
  • white and blue cotton cord
  • paper doily
  • frantage (chunky white, aged silver, silver glass glitter).

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Tilda's Town: Christmas
  2. Magnolia Down Under (I was TOP 5): Flowers, Make your own
  3. You, me and Magnolia: Anything goes
  4. Lovely hAngar or sweet Magnolia: Shabby Chic or Vintage 
  5. The Ribbon girl / Magnolia only May Challenge: Simply add sparkle 
  6. Fashionista Challenge: Lets See a Magnolia!
