Christmas Wishes

Another Christmas card under my belt -- yeah! I need to keep at it. Don't send out an overly huge amount of cards, but the pitiful stack I've got right now isn't going to cut it at all (grin). I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches and a cute little Tilda from the new Christmas 2012 releases. I stamped Tilda onto X-Press It brand card and coloured her up with my Copics.

The card base is white with a layer of cranberry card (I think that is from CTMH) and then two DPs from my stash (sorry, manufacturer name is gone). The bottom DP has subtle snowflakes while the second DP is soft green on white images of various vintage Christmas scenes (horse drawn sleigh, tree in parlour, etc.) I matted the second DP with the same cranberry as the first. Then I matted my little image with green (DCWV). I added a row of white lace and then two heart shaped buttons. I glued the red button to the green using glue dots. The sentiment is a round stamp, and I cut the inside circle (with sentiment) from the larger circle of the overall design so that it would better fit the top of my card. I matted it onto cranberry and added two small red pearls (Recollections) between the holly leaves. I then added three graduating green pearls to the bottom right to give that visual triangle to the composition. Oh, and one last thing, I added a light coat of Diamond Dust to her little wings. Unfortunately this is a poor photo (really need to try to get a better one), so the light sparkles are not showing at all.

I will enter this card in:

  17. I'm a Magnolia stamp lover and I just love how you've done up this sweet Tilda! I have yet to color one with red hair but I would love to try. Are you willing to share which colors you've used? The DPs are fabulous! I especially like the lighter green one! Great card!
