So Christmas has come and gone and I am still making a Christmas card? Yup! I figure it is still December so I am ok.... yeah?
I left my friend's Christmas card til last as it has to be the best and something different, so there is a bit of pressure there and with the lead up to Christmas this year, it all got to much so here I was this afternoon franticly trimming and stamping and glittering away. Funny thing is though - she does the same with her card for my family.
The front of this card is based on the sketch from Mojo Monday #119. I was really unsure what to do with the circle at the front as I had planned for my pretty image to be inside, but I think this turned out OK.
I was happy with my flowers! Nothing like a bit of holly to make things festive. The challenge at Little Red Wagon is to use flowers.
For the inside of this card, I had planned a little "wow factor" with my Tilda. She is actually not a Cristmas Tilda but is "Tilda with Hearts" from the "Love Collection". The current challenge from Magnolia Down Under is to use a stamp which was intended for another use. So I thought she worked quite well. I had meaning to get to this challenge since it was posted and just hadn't got there yet, so it is a big relief to finally participate!
At ABC Challenges the current challenge is K for Kissing and little Tilda is all puckered up!
To actually be able to have a space to write on the card I had to use my Magnolia Recipe card for a little tag on the back! So much cutting and pasting! So much fun.
