Silent Night Tilda


I got my new stamps from Magnolia-licious the other day, and the same day's mail brought my new Copics from Oozak! Happy dance! Of course, no housework got done that afternoon, and since we were snowed it--it was the perfect time to work on this month's Christmas card for the Magnolia-licious Yahoo group.

I've never made an easel card before--but it was so easy! The only hard part was figuring out my embellies so it would stand and look the way I wanted it to. There will definitely be a couple more made like this one--at least until my DP like this runs out!

Supplies are listed below, along with the Copic colors I used.

I'd love to know what you think of it--please leave me a comment!



Supplies: Copic markers (as shown above); Prism cardstock in white, dark red, dark green, and vanilla; DP--Candy Cane Lane * Ice Capades by Imaginisce; Beckett Expression Iceberg White cardstock for the image; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Sakura Gelly Roll sparkle pen; and Crystal Stickers Pearls.

Nancy—

I don’t know the source of the stamp, I’m sorry! Back when I started to un-mount my wood-mounted stamps, I didn’t save info like that—I never thought I’d need it. Never dreamed I’d do a blog or anything like that. And I’ve had that stamp for probably 10 years. I try to keep better track of the sources now!

The coloring is fabulous...obviously, she was in a blonde and purple mood and it really works for her. I don't have much luck coloring red hair, either! Anyway, your card is gorgeous. - Gina L
