A Christmas Card

Well it's Friday once again, today I have a Just Magnolia and Fussy and Fancy card for you. At Just Magnolia we have this lovely sketch for you by Dawny. Over at Fussy and Fancy our theme is Christmas colors but it doesn't HAVE to be a Christmas card. I thought I would get an early start at them though :)

This is one of my favorite Christmas Tilda's and the best part is she makes a wonderful Birthday card too. I wanted to use actual tissue paper but honestly I was too lazy to dig it out of the hall closet. I found this tullee and it works just as good. I made a slit in the top lin of the box and tucked the tullee inside and used my scor-tape to keep it in place. I love the way it came out. Hope you like it too.

I will see you Monday with the RRR Blog hop!

Oh Mindy, what a lovely card. I always seem to favor Christmas cards in non-traditional colors as I am not a traditional red and green fan. This is beautiful card. The tulle is the perfect complement to the stamped image and the colors you used are just perfect with your DP. The buttons add a wonderful accent color.

Barb Hardeman said...

Awwww, Mindy! This is just beautiful! Love the non traditional colors, the distressing is awesome, and who needs flowers on a card this gorgeous? The big bow is just perfect and matches your corrigated panel beautifully. Awesome work...
