I have made another Christmas card using this wee cutie called Tilda with little snowy snowman !! I love her cape !! I have coloured her with a combination of distress ink mediums and finished her using a wink of stella clear glitter pen and an inkessentials white pen and lastly some liquid pearls .


I have used these gorgeous papers from Pion and Maja design from LLC for the layers using a label doohickey and edged with some guesso and glamour dust. She is matted onto a dienamics stitched oval die . The sleigh is from a doohickey club which I have slightly bent and tied some tiny bells with thread to it and made some parcels just with card twine and some coats thread for the bows. I have attached the sleigh to the doohickey so wrapped fern tag. I have put a Bo Bunny brad in the center of the doohickey snowflake.


The other side features a die from memory box called precious mittens die finished with a button from Tim Holtz ideology. I have curved the doohickey scalloped dotted lace die cut and added some more bells. I have also used some gorgeous cream pearl trim around the card and diamantes.


Lastly I have finished with tiny wooden buttons with pink thread. The papers and gorgeous embellishments used are from Live & Love Crafts .
