A Present For Tilda

Here it is the 25th of September, only 3 months until Christmas Day!  I better get started making my Christmas Lists and my Christmas Card list. Today I'd like to share with you one of my latest Christmas Cards that I made back in early June.  So grab yourself a coffee, tea or what ever you prefer and enjoy the posting...it is a bit long.

For this card I once again used a brown lunch bag for the base of my card, I really like this style of card, allows me to add in our family Christmas letter into the back pocket.  I can even pop in a couple of photos or a gift card into the pocket too.
For the front of my card I used Santa Hands Out Presents, Old Bench and Winter Forest and dark brown card stock.  All images are colored in Copics (sorry I don't have the numbers I used as I colored this a couple of months back).  I flocked the fur trim on Santa's suit and filled in his glasses with Diamond Glaze.
 
Here is a close up of Santa sitting on the bench with a parcel in his hands for Tilda.  Here you can see how the Diamond Glaze on his glass look like glass lenses.
On the inside of my card I used Secret Tilda, colored in copics (sorry I don't have the numbers I used as I colored this a couple of months back).  I edged the lace on her outfit with Stickles in Diamond.  I used a digital desgin paper that I found on line, dk brown card stock and white cardstock that I can either stamp or hand write a Christmas Greeting on.
 
Here is a close up of Secret Tilda.  Secret Tilda is one of my favorite Tilda's, it is so hard to pick an absolute favorite as they are all so darn cute.
For all your Magnolia stamp needs head over to see Diana at Magnolia-licious.  The service is wonderful and if you don't see a Magnolia image that you are looking for in stock drop Diana a quick email, she will do her best to help you out.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Have a wonderful day!
