So come on over and play with us!!!!
I don't know where my brain was when I got in mind the card for this week...Christmas is the least thing on my mind these days!! lol...but anyway, admittedly, this sketch was a difficult one for me for sure.. The base of my card is Bazzill, the matting is PTI Pure Poppy CS and SU Glorious Green CS, and the DP is bits of old wrapping paper and digital. I used Tilda With Glitter, Tilda Decorating Christmas Tree, and Christmas Tree which are all from Magnolia-licious, the bestest place in the world to buy Maggies!!!! It looks as though every one of these stamps is now available too!! And it is NOT too soon to be thinking about those holiday cards and rounding up those cute munchkins you intend to use on them!!
I first stamped the two little Tildas, colored them with Copics, and cut them out...then I bit the bullet and started cutting holes in all of the papers for the front of the card using Nesties. After matching up all of the openings I used a larger Nestie and a smaller one to make the green wreath forms...one for inside and one for outside. I placed a square of acetate between all the layers to make the window--sorry about the reflection in the picture!! I then put heavy FlowerSoft on each of the wreath forms and wrapped them with tiny red silk ribbon. for the front wreath I left a tail of ribbon so that little Tilda could be holding the end rather than the glitter. Notice that I cut a little half moon on Tilda's hand so the ribbon could go through it...I probably should have done the same on her other hand, but her thumb is too tiny for me to see...lolol. After putting all the layers together for the front, I added red rhinestones to the wreath for some sparkle, two red organza bows with wreath charm dangles and finally added red pearls to soften the corners. Tilda was propped up on dimensional tape and the ribbon run through her hands.
For the inside, I added the other wreath and decorated it with tiny red pom poms, added another red organza bow and an old time Santa charm. I then stamped the Christmas tree on Cryogen white and colored with Copics...I decorated the tree with shaped rhinestones, added Tilda on dimensional tape and these little girlies are READY for the holidays!!!! I did add some Glossy Accents to the ornaments and Diamond Stickles to Tilda's wings. AND I did color her hairbow red AFTER I took this picture...lol
Thank you so very much for dropping by to check on us!!! I just love to hear what you think of my latest play things!!! I hope you will all have a magnificent weekend--safe and fun!!! And hope you will come back and see me again real soon...Maggie hugs for everyone!!!
