Well here it is, my very first Christmas card! A Magnolia card and I used digital paper for this one from Bearly Mine Designs, lovely paper which you can print yourself. This set is called Christmas wishes and costs only £ 4,50.I used creamcolored cardstock for all the diecuts I made and distressed everything with Walnut Stain.
I colored Tilda with Copics. I tried to add some depth round here forehead, but am not sure whether I like it. What do you think? I gave her muff some Flower Soft as well as the edge of her skates. On the seam of her skirt and around the heart on her muff I added some silvercolored Stickles. Around Tilda I stamped some small snowstars which I gave some silvercolored embossing powder. Around the oval diecur I added creamcolored pearls with the Viva Perlen Pen.
For the sentiment at the top of my card I stamped a Dutch Christmas wish (which means Happy Holidays), onto a strip of cardstock. I cut the ends and folded next to the text. Then I put foamtape underneath the text part to raise that. I also hung a shate charm on the tag which doesn't really show here because it's turned.
At the bottom right I added some berries together with a lovely bow.
Dat was 'm dan wel. Voor een eerste kaart vind ik 'm best geslaagd. Hopelijk jullie ook. XXX Frea
Well, that was it. For a first card I'm quite happy with it. I hope you like it too. Hugs Frea
