Snowie With Bells



A happy Saturday and a very nice weekend to each of you!! After the several days of rain after Ida it is absolutely a gorgeous day for being outside. I hope that your world is as nice!!

This is my Magnolia-licious DT sample sketch card which uses the fun sketch provided by the very talented Kerry and is available for you to use this month over at Magnolia-licious Highlites.

The base of the card is Bazzill, matting is Prismatics and glitter paper, and the DP is the from the Magnolia White Christmas Collection--Snowy Heaven and Snowy Lace. The image I have used is the absolutely darling Snowman with Bells from this year's Christmas collection over at Magnolia-licious. I stamped Snowie on Cryogen White and colored him with Copics as well as Silver, Gold and Lilac Spicas. The puffy trim on his bolero is Liquid Applique and the ground is Polar White FlowerSoft. The major panels were machine stitched. To complete the front I added lavender organza ribbon and bow, lavender rhinestones to soften corners, a punched double snowflake with glitter and a dangling silver snowman. The solid white panel is glitter paper using the CB Snowflake folder.


For the inside I used more of the same as the front and added more glitter snowflakes and a dangling snowflake at the jotting spot. You can see the beauty of the Magnolia papers on the inside much better than on the front of the card. These papers are so substantial and very nice to work with. They are also shown at Magnolia-licious.

Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you will return again and again. I would love to know what you think of Little Snowie. I have seen lots of cute snowmen but I think these Maggies are the cutest ever!!!! Hopefully you are enjoying your weekend and until we meet again, Magnolia-licious hugs for each of you!!!
