Hello Dear Readers,
Today, I would love to share with you another card I've recently completed. I fell in love with this adorable North Pole Tilda from the 2013 Winter Wonderland Collection. I got my stamp at Magnolia-licious. Diana is currently out of this particular stamp, but there are a few others in this collection that would also work well. You might want to try these:
Cozy Christmas Tilda,
In the Snow Heart Tilda,
In the Snow Scarf Tilda.
Diana does have these in stock. Be sure to check out the new Memory Box Dies that Magnolia-licious has in stock.
Here is my card:
I began by cutting the trees and inking the edges in one of my favorite colors, Antique Pewter. Next, I added Stickles to the branches and trunks in small segments just to add sparkle. Some of the trees have been elevated using foam strips.
The snow was made from torn strips which I ran through a texture roller. You can see some of the design on the left side by the flower cluster. There are three strips of snow. Each one is at a different elevation using pop dots and strips. I added the Stickles to the torn edges. A few fern branches were punched from green cardstock and tucked into the snow.
Tilda is also on pop dots as well. She's been colored with watercolors and then accentuated using Inktense pencils. I printed the sentiment on my computer and stamped around it using Magnolia Thought Bubbles. I also made the little snowman by piecing him together. His eyes are tiny black pearls while his arms are thin wires that have been twisted and splayed open at the ends to resemble fingers. The snowman is also on pop dots. There is a hidden tag on the front attached to the ribbon. The gorgeous papers are Pion.
I think that about covers it. The inside is also finished using additional Pion papers. I wish Pion was easier to get here in The States.
I would like to remind you that you have two chances to win a little somethin', somethin'. If you leave a comment below, I will pick a name which will be posted on January 28 when I post the next challenge. The winner will get a special thank you gift from me.
