Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT - Fancy Folds

Woohoo! It is time for another challenge at Magnolia Down Under Challenges and this week we would like to see your fancy folds! I have made an accordian card after being totally wowed by the one my friend Kylie created a few weeks ago! The papers are by MME and I've edged them all with stickles.

This is my absolute favourite Magnolia christmas image (so far LOL) so I just had to use her when choosing my images for this card! I've coloured her with copics and added stickles to her star and headband.
I embossed the magnolia christmas sentiment stamp with silver embossing powder and inked the edges with bundled sage distress ink. The gorgeous snowflake was cut with my new doohickey die which was a birthday present from my husband.

I added a poinsettia and some roses from my stash along with a crystal wire stem from Hobbycraft. The border along the top was cut with a Martha Stewart punch.

This is how the card opens out. I stamped the winter forest stamp onto some green cardstock before cutting out and covering the branches with snow using a snow writer pen.

I coloured Tilda with violin with copics too and added stickles to her wings. Don't you just love her curls? The gorgeous glittery rik rak is from my stash - I wish I knew where it was from as I'd love some more for my christmas cards!!

Here's a close up of the snowy trees - the snow writer pen makes them look so real!

On the back of the card I added gingerbread Tilda and a tag for a message.

I coloured Tilda with copics of course and added stickles to her outfit and some of the gingerbreads.
The tag was cut with the doohickey dream tag and I added some chiffon crinkle ribbon from my stash topped with a snowflake.

The gorgeous sentiment is by Stempelglede and I've embossed it in silver.

I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge! Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning cards! Thanks for looking! x
