Merry Magnolia-Christmas!

Today I'm going to show you a card that I finished last night... Got so inspirered by the challange that I couldn't stop.... ;-) Happens tooo often...

The card fits these challanges:

Magnolia Down Under - Christmas in July

Stamptacular Sunday - Christmas in July

Althea's Mix - Christmas Card Week 30 (link se sidebar under inspirational blogs)




The front side is kept fairly simple, just a swedish christmas song stamped and some flowers... Also the swirl on the edges of the paper is stamped. The window is drawn and colored by hand. I colored using the inking tool and pads (vintage photo and walnut stain). The stamping is done with Walnut Stain.


On the inside I've used an older Magnolia image and masked it together with the winter forest (also Magnolia). I've colored with distress refils and put some white flower soft on the branches. The snow flakes are punch outs (I used bling cardstock but it doesn't show in the photo).




Close up....






On the other side I drew the same window again as on the front and I placed a seethrough plastic paper as glass inbetween. I put some "snow" on the window as well to make it look like the window was outside with Tilda. The text is in Swedish saying "Christmas wishes to you and your family".




Behind the wintery scene I made a pull out tag for writing. I inked it with forest moss and walnut stain and again the gorgeous swirl... Love it!!



I hope you all have a glorious day and hope to see you again!! And thank's ever so much to those of you who kindly leave a comment... You make my day!!!
