Winter Forest for Magnolia-licious Blog Hop AND Some Sweet Stuff Too!!!!
Happy Monday!!! And welcome to the Accessories Make The Card Blog Hop at Magnolia-licious. If you have just arrived here, remember to go over to Magnolia-licious Highlites to check out all of the instructions and to see what prizes you can win on that site. The DT members were asked to create a card that ONLY uses accessory stamps from Magnolia (no big animals, snowman, characters, etc).
For my card I have used Winter Forest from Magnolia-licious which now has a new ECommerce website and I know will make it much easier for you to shop and see the stamps. The web site address is the same as always. Winter Forest is from the Santa Collection 2008 and has been one of my favorites...but of course they all are!! lol
The base of the card is Bazzill, the matting is all Prismatics, and the DP is from the new Magnolia "White Christmas Collection"--Frosty Fir and Winter Wonderland. These are also available at Magnolia-licious in the Christmas Paper Pack. I distressed the cut edges of the DP with white acrylic paint before machine stitching all panels. The trees are stamped and cut out of Cryogen White, colored with Copics and propped up on dimensional tape. I then added Liquid Applique and glitter before heating. Finally, I added aqua organza ribbon, a thin gold trim and a bow with pine dangle and three pins that I also colored with Copics and pearl brads to the corners.
For the inside of my card, I used a Magnolia Christmas Background from the new collection stamped in MS ink and more organza ribbon and bow...For the jotting panel I added several Swarovski gems for some sparkle...I finished both panels with more Aqua pearls. As you can see below I also made a matching Papier Mache box.
And now for some sweet stuff for you!!! I have made a Magnolia Christmas bracelet and would like for you to have a chance at winning the bracelet, card, and matching box filled with Gold and Silver primas. Just leave a comment and the winner will be selected by Random.org on Friday at 12:01 AM EST.
