Tilda with Candy Cane for Christmas in July
Happy Monday and Welcome to Magnolia-licious Christmas in July Challenge!! I hope you have had a marvelous weekend and are ready to start a fantastic week and will join us in this fun challenge over on Magnolia-licious Highlites.
For my card I used Bazzill CS for the base, Prismatics Herbal Garden Light and SU Real Red CS for the matting, and Daisy D's Snowflakes and Holly DP. I stitched the first layer on the front, then made a square of Cryogen white, edging it with MS Corner Loop and Wing Edger Loop punches, and propping it up on dimensional tape. I then added a square of coordinating DP. I stamped Tilda with Candy Cane from the Christmas Collection 2008 twice and colored her with Copics and a touch of Spica on the bow and Diamond Stickles on the wings. This little girl (along with many from the Christmas and holiday collections) is now available over at Magnolia-licious. I also propped Tilda up. I added 3 layer poinsettias and holly by Prima and made the centers from MM Vintage Findings pearl flowers. I also added a polymer clay candy cane which I colored with Copics to match the one Tilda is holding. Finally I added larger pearls to the remaining 2 corners.
I used the same DPs on the inside of the card. On the first panel I used a simple olive organza ribbon and a mini Tilda with Candy Cane colored with copics. And on the jotting panel I used another punched square for the message and trimmed it with another triple poinsettia. Finally all corners were softened with small pearls.
Thank you so much for your visit. We always love to see you drop by and hope that you will leave us your thoughts. Remember it is not too early to start thinking about your Christmas cards and how cute those Maggies can be for the holidays! You may also want to drop over and see what Diana has in stock and start thinking about which Maggies you may want for the winter holidays. Have a wonderful week and come back soon!! Hugs...
