Welcome back to another Christmas All Year Long blog hop featuring Magnolia Stamps. If you have arrived here from Danielle's blog you are on the right track. If not, HERE is the link back to the start at the Magnolia-Licious Christmas All Year Long blog and start at the beginning. You don't want to miss any of these darling creations.
I used Wrapped Tilda (2009 So Jolly So Snowy Collection) and put her sitting on top of the Sugar Bag (2010 Raise the Ceiling / Right Through My Heart Collection). I wanted to go all white so that the Tilda image pops out at you. I did end up putting a bit of colour on the card, but I don't think it takes away from the image at all ......
Suzanne Dean's tip of putting a warm gray over top of the red to make it less bright and I love the result. I used some red Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink to the flower centers on the layer I embossed with the Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder, you can see them a bit in this picture. And a closer look at the ribbon and bead treatment on the left hand side of the card ....
There are 3 layers on the cardfront of this card, and I spritzed all layers with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint Spritz (make with 70% Rubbing Alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint). I also distressed the first layer on the outside, and the inside layer. Oh lala, talk about bling! I tried to take a picture of it, but as usual it does not show up very well, but here's the picture anyways ....
