Winter Tilda

The card did not turn out the way I wanted; not my favorite design. I decided to mix it up a little and create a Christmas card. I am slowly building up an inventory. I used a Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder to create the post card background. The floral arrangement has the new flowers from the weekend shopping excursion. The small dark red flowers are cut from a floral trim I had on hand. I thought it added that shabby chic element.

Here are the ingredients I used to create my card:

Magnolia Stamp - Winter Tilda
Copic Markers
Liquid Pearls
Bo Bunny Paper
Plain cardstock
Memory Box Die -Frosty Border
Sentiment Stamp -Memory Box
