Christmas All Year Long--February

Welcome back! It's time for the Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop once again, and I'm so glad you stopped by! There will be many many beautiful cards along the way.


Thanks to Julie for heading up the Christmas All Year Round blog hop, to Deb who runs our Yahoo Magnolia-licious group, and especially to Diana and her Magnolia-licious store, all they do for us! If you want to start at the very beginning of the Blog Hop, click here.





My Tilda with Candy Cane was the first Tilda I got for myself, and has been my favorite. My background was made using the Scallop Trim border and corner punches from Stampin' Up! There's a little bit of a learning curve to using them, but if you do a search on SplitCoastStampers, you'll find lots of help figuring them out.


My ribbon panel through the center is actually 3 separate ribbons, layered onto another punched strip. And topping that off is the Nestabilities large oval and large scalloped oval.


You can't see the glitter as well, but I used a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen to doodle the snowflakes, outline the center of the oval, and highlight the bow on Tilda's candy cane.





This is the inside panel. Decorating the inside is a little new to me, but I'm starting to really love the cards done that way. They just have a more 'finished' feel.


Supplies: Cardstock--Prism (dark green) and GP (white); Design Paper--Figgy Puddy by Basic Grey; Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Scallop Trim border and corner punches (Stampin' Up!); Ribbon--Light Green (SU!) and Moss dot (Joann's); Stamps--Tilda with Candy Cane (Magnolia) and Studio G (sentiments); Gelly Roll Stardust Pen (Sakura); Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); and Copic markers (as shown below):




Thanks again for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment for me--I love reading them.


Your next stop on the Blog Hop is the very talented Glenda Mollet, and I just know you're going to love her card! Enjoy the rest of the Hop!
