May Your Christmas Be Filled With Warmth and Love



Hello Everyone!! I can't believe how long it has been since my last posting!! I'm so sorry that I have been away for so long!! I hope this finds you all doing well! I've been busy trying to get everything ready for Christmas! I'm so behind this year!!  I was able to make a few cards for some sweet  friends though!

I decided to make a Pocket Card using Lifestyle Crafts Treat Bag Die. For the background and the striped border,  I used Echo Park All I Want For Christmas Digi Design Papers. I stamped Santa's Helper Tilda on Cryogen White Card Stock and colored her using Alcohol Markers, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I added Hero Arts Ultrafine Prisma Glitter to Tilda's Santa Hat and Wink of Stella to the sleeves of Tilda's dress. I fussy cut Tilda and mounted her to a Christmas Sweets Frame Die Cut that I downloaded for free from Paper Wishes. The little gingerbread man and lady are also from the same download. I added some little peppermint candies that I made from some Perler Beads. I found a tutorial on Youtube that shows how to make them from Craftyirina. I cut the Candy Cane Heart - #52908 using the Silhouette.  The doily was cut using Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Tiny Doily Die - DL234. The mini pompom trim and candy striped baker's twine are from my stash. The little red felt heart is from a Christmas Card Making Kit that I found at the 99 cent Store. There were all sorts of little embellishments in the kit.


  

The saying that I used is from Uptown Rubber Stamps - Holly Pond Hill. Unfortunately the company has gone out of business. The glittered heart is also from the embellishment kit.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

I have entered my card into the following challenges:

Tilda's Town Challenges #134 - Happy Holidays

Midweek Magnolias #104 - Anything Goes

Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog Tuesday Challenge - Anything Goes

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Big Hugs,

Suzan

Gorgeous pocket card, Suzanne. I love this older version of the adorable Tilda. I think this is the first one I've seen her being coloured this season. Beautifully coloured. Those gingerbread people are adorable and really love the cute pompom trim.
Thanks for coming over to play with us at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.
Hugs,
Norma
