Christmas All Year Long - Magnolia Blog Hop - April 2011

Here we are again on the 25th of the month, doing our monthly Magnolia-Licious Christmas All Year Long blog hop.  Welcome to my blog.  If you arrived here from Danielle Champagne's blog, you are on the right track.  If not, and you would like to start at the beginning, click on THIS LINK to return you to the beginning of the hop.
My card for you today uses So Heavenly Tilda from the 2008 So Heavenly, Travel and School Collection.  You do not need to have one of the images from a Christmas collection to create a Christmas card.  I also used the Silent Night background from the 2008 Santa collection.
Here is my card for you ....

I brayered the Whisper White cardstock background with Cherry Cobbler, then Bravo Burgundy and finally Chocolate Chip.  Then I distressed all the edges, then really got into the vintage thing and ripped and tore a whole lot.  Then I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink again.  Then I stamped the Silent Night backgrround stamp in Basic Black.  That is layered onto Basic Black cardstock on an Always Artichoke card base.
I stamped So Heavenly Tilda on Irridescent Cryogen paper and coloured her with Copic Sketch markers.  Then I cut her out.  I used Diamond Stickles on her wings and a White Sharpie Poster Pen for the dots on her nightie.  When I put her on the card, she blended in too much, so I put a Whisper White oval behind her.  I think it kind of looks like she is in the moonlight.

Here is a closer view of the ribbon treatment ....

And the sentiment.  I also brayered this piece of Whisper White cardstock, then adding some Basic Rhinestones for a bit of bling....
And finally the inside of the card - I used some Deck The Halls DSP (now retired) from Stampin' Up!

All supplies are Stampin' Up! except for the image, the image paper, and the colouring.
Thanks for visiting and hopping along on our blog hop.  Your next stop is Jessica Hammond's blog, I know she will have a super cute creation for you today.
Happy Stampin' ......................

Hello Glenda, WOW! I love your card very very much. The paper you created is wonderful, love this combination of ink to create vintage look. Very lovely idea to place Tilda on a white circle; your coloring of her is just gorgeous.
