Tilda under the tree and on the tree!

Hi! Thanks for visiting me today! I have been playing with my Magnolia Fall Club stamps again. So cute! As soon as I was the mini Tilda's I had this idea of having a little angel sitting on a Christmas tree. So this is what I came up with.

The Christmas tree is simply a triangle piece of cardstock that I have cut out strips of patterned paper and punched and inked the edges, then attached them in a bit of an alternating pattern. Its a little hard to see in the photo, but I then applied a fair amount of Glimmer mist and some liquid pearls to the tree. The little hearts are punched and layered, then some glossy accents applied. If you like them, there is a great tutorial HERE (except I didn't make mine to buttons, just embellies).


The layout is fairly simple. I used a sketch from Papercraft Planet, its the first time that I've played in one of the challenges over there so I hope I upload the photos correctly, lol. I thought this idea needed a nice easy layout as there is so much detail in the tree and the papers are gorgeous Websters minis so they need to be allowed to show a bit :)

Ingredients for this card are:

Copic colours: E 0000, 00, 11, 13, 29, 41, 43, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, W0, 1, R 000, 00, 20, 335, 37, 39, BG 72, 75, 78, Y 21, 26, 28
Stamps: Magnolia, SU! Tiny Tags
Papers: Websters Minis "Home for the Holidays"
Embellishments: Cream cotton lace, teal ribbon, Glimmer Mist "Iridescent Gold", Liquid Pearls, Bell, Flourish with a Bling (Tickled Pink Stamps), Maroon Satin 1" ribbon, Flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts), Glossy Accents, Stickles Diamond
Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 17, Tiny Tag punch, Fiskers Heart Punch, SU! Scallop edge punch, Sewing machine, Cuttlebug, paper piercer
