Hi Crafty Bloggers
This is my first Christmas card of the year ! Thought it felt a bit strange and a bit early until I got my Christmas Crafty Box out and then I saw all my crafty goodies and hey presto my mojo kicked in lol
I have chosen Magnolia Reindeer Tilda and Magnolia Snowy Circle.
I have been playing with distress inks again !
I have used this wonderful sketch with lots of lovely panels . I really enjoyed putting it all together !!
TOP TIP I bought a slim strand of pearls which I cut into three strips all the same length as my card ! I put down a line of double sided tape and placed each strand so they merge together just loving the effect going to have to get some different colours . So pretty !!
Here's a wee close up of my mini shaker sentiment and stamp !!How cool would that be with a mini Magnolia !!
Here is a shot of the inside where I used a Magnolia poinsettia die with a brown copic for faux stitching and beautiful gem brad.
I would like to enter my first Christmas creation into the following challenges where I got my inspiration ;-
