JM #83 and WOC #10...Happy Holidays!


Good morning friends! I am back again this morning with another Christmas card am afraid you may get sick of seeing Christmas cards from me as that is pretty much all I am making at the mo! I made this one for the fabulous challenge over at Just Magnolia...White + one other colour! I am also entering this card into the Blue Christmas Challenge at Wild Orchid Crafts card is more a greenish I hope it counts!


So, again, I made an easel card, I love making them and I actually find them quicker to make than a 6x6 tent card. They're also a big hit with my friends and family...they love getting easel cards. I used BG Jovial with AC cardstock. I finally broke down and used some of this gorgeous Satin pleated ribbon from MFT that I got in one of my VIP kits. It is so silky and shimmery IRL...just scrumptious! I added some white cotton lace trim over it and I added a white WOC gardenia (I believe this is a large flat gardenia) and some Prima flowers with BG Wassail White brads. I sprinkled some blue half pearls here and there. I used my Catslife Press stamps, a Melissa Frances Rub-on and the bottom sentiment is from a clear Acrylic stamp set that I got at Micheals. I think this Tilda is so sweet and I loved colouring her with my Copics. I added some Smooch Illuminate Pealized Top Coat, that I just got, to her sparkly!

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card!

Have a stampin' great day!

These colours are lovely - think I'll start a book of colour combinations with you as my chief inspirer - this pure white of the ribbon & lace against the aqua blue, lime green & Kraft is a just what you say a "joy". Thanks too for your lovely comment.
Much love
