Merry Christmas....RED, GOLD and CREAM.........

I have my DT card for
Magnolia Down Under

This weeks challenge is..

papers: All from my scrap bag!!

#3094 A LITTLE GIFT TILDA has been colored with my copic markers then cut out and popped onto my card to give her that 3-d look. Sentiment is Stampendous and the little holly leaves are Stampin' Up.

embellies: gold wire ribbon, pom pom trim, jingle bells, snowflake with heat embossing in gold on it, gold skeleton leaf, gold metal photo corners, pearls, paper flowers, waxed threading.

techniques and tools: I have heat embossed my sentiment and the holly leaves around it. I have also heat embossed the edges of the sewn paper. I have used my TH distressed inks on all edges of my card and added stickles to the Spellbinder oval cut sentiment. The layers have been sewn with the sewing machine. I have stickled the jingle bells and the sweet little angel's wings. I have used my McGill pine leaves punches and added them to my flower arrangements.

Kat said...

Stunning card Janiel. I love that sweet Tilda and the lovely rich Christmas colours you've used.

Are you all ready for a lovely family Christmas? I still have some little stocking fillers to buy for my grandchildren and then decide what we're eating on Christmas Day. I've even got the length of marzipanning (is that a word?) my Christmas cake.

Have a lovely time whatever you've got planned.

I am very much enjoying my trip through your December makes, PQ! I'm sorry I'm not commenting on them all. It's not that lots of lovely adjectives don't spring to mind - more that it's late I'm keen to catch up and stay caught up! I loved seeing your festive photos of your home and this little beauty is sooo sweet. Fabulous fancy bow and immaculate red colour work on Tilda's dress. SUPERB! Giant hugs, Lesley
