Merry Christmas Tilda

This is my second post for today. What can I say – it’s Christmas fever in my craft room. I got an order of ten Christmas cards and all I have is 7 or 8, so there’s a few to be made. I made this one in non traditional colours again. I think the new Maja design papers (Vintage autumn basic) are just perfect for Christmas cards. I love the colors in this collection.
I used my favourite Tilda at the moment – Merry Christmas Tilda from Winter Wonderland collection.

For this card I used:

  • colors: TH distress ink markers and distress ink pads
  • ink: archival black
  • watercolor paper: Langton HP 300g
  • design papers: Maja design – Vintage autumn basics
  • shape: Silhouette cameo
  • stamp:Merry Christmas Tilda (Winter Wonderland coll., 2013)
  • dies: Magnolia doohickey – heart swirl, scalloped tag; Marianne design – decorative elegance, TH – tree line
  • flowers from I am roses, The ribbon girl and LLC
  • stickles glue (stardust)
  • shabby white frantage
  • silver stars
  • white lace
  • TH crackle paint
  • paper doily.

I’m entering this card into the following challenges:

  1. Deep Ocean Challenge: Winter
  2. Live and love crafts challenge blog (TOP 5): Christmas inspiration collage
  3. Hjerteboden (I WON): Jul
  4. Allsorts challenge blog: Christmas cheer
  5. Magnolia-licious tuesday challenge: Anything goes
  6. The Ribbon Girl challenge blog: Include stripes
  7. Hanna and friends: Glitter

    Gorgeous card, Tamara. Love this colour scheme. Tilda is adorable and you've coloured her beautifully with your distress inks–I have to give those inks a try. Love the shape of your card. Gorgeously embellished.
    Thanks for sharing your card with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.

    Hojla! Sem prišla pogledat še tvojo čedno Tildo, Zelo mi je všeč kako si ji pobarvala hlače, ki se lepo prelivajo. Všeč so mi tudi zvezde pa ne razberem ali si jih dodelala ali so tako kupljene. 🙂
    Lepo nedeljsko popoldne,

    Jasmina hvala. Zvezde so bile takšne kupljene in sicer v Müllerju. 😉 So pa del božične ponudbe, tako da so še verjetno na voljo.
    Lp, t.

    Hi Tamara;
    You're absolutely right; the Autumn collection papers also work very well for X-mas cards and projects. This card is beautiful, just like all of your cards. Thanks so much for playing with LLC in our Christmas challenge. Hugz, Sandy
