Cozy Tilda at Just Magnolia
Happy Friday!! I hope you have had a wonderful week and are ready for a fun and enjoyable weekend. I am noticing way too much hustle and bustle for my liking!!! But that's what this season brings!!
This week at Just Magnolia Challenge Blog the design team members were asked to create a Christmas/holiday card for a very special person! I hope you will come over and check out the lovely cards made by the DT members and will join us this week in making your own card for a special person in your life! Please be sure that you have linked back to Just Magnolia on your blog posting. Also be sure that you are linking your posting with MrLinky rather than linking your blog. That way it makes it so much easier for us to find your card when we go to look at your creations.
For my card I have used Bazzill for the base, all matting is SU and PTI, and the DP is from the BG Eskimo Kisses Collection. This little Tilda is Cozy Tilda from the new Christmas Collection and the background for her is Snowy Circle and both are from Magnolia-licious. Gosh, it looks as though Cozy Tilda is a favorite...but if you would like her please give Diana a shout to let her know that you would like her and I am sure she will try to get her for you.
All main panels are machine stitched and on the front I used Bridal Tinsel EP for the Snowy Circle. Tilda was stamped twice, colored with Copics and propped up. I also used a bit of Liquid Applique, Diamond Stickles, and a gold bead for her button. The corner snowflakes are from MS punches, coated with white glue and dipped in Twinklets, and fastened with gem brads. To finish the front I added 2 types of ribbon, a cute little angel charm, and small dew drops on the corners.
For the inside I used several glitter silk snowflakes with pink gem centers, the same ribbon as the front and a little portrait of Cozy Tilda...she is just so darling with her little muff!!
