Tilda with fir tree

Hi everyone! Another Tilda card today and this is Tilda with fir tree from the Merry Little Christmas collection. She's coloured with distress inks, cut out and layered over some lovely Webster's Pages paper which I've stamped on with the Magnolia trees and the holly swirl stamp. I've die cut some trees from more Webster's paper and added them over the background and then added lots of little glitter card snowflakes, stickles and pearl pen. 

I'm entering this card into Cute Card Thursday 'Blast from the past' challenge and I've chosen challenge 86 glitter me silly, I just wish all the sparkle would show up more on the card photo :)

Have a nice evening.

My DT friends have made some gorgeous cards for inspiration and as always there's a lovely prize from our sponsor Simon Says Stamp, I hope you can join us.

For my card I've used the gorgeous Snowy hug from the Magnolia 'Merry Little Christmas' collection which I've water coloured with distress inks and cut out using a nestabilities labels die. I've used the die as a template to make the mats under the image in pink glitter card and paper from BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses collection, I also used these for the rest of  the card to make up my three papers for the recipe. The snowflakes are a combination of Martha Stewart and Woodware  punches and I've used glitter, gems and ribbon as well to make up my four types of embellishments. 

Have a lovely Saturday.

Hi everyone, hope your weekend is off to a good start! A Magnolia card today with the sweet sledging Edwin from the Christmas collection last year and one that I didn't get the chance to use at the time. I've coloured Edwin with distress inks and cut him out and then layered him over a background cut on the Cricut from white card. The Snow sentiment was also cut on the Cricut and then layered up in white and blue card. I added lots of stardust stickles to finish off.

Magnolia have some news which is about the re-design of the Inspiration Blog happening on 1st December so I'm looking forward to seeing it. Magnolia Ink is also going to have a new design from next year.
