Another card for fun!

Here's another just for fun card I managed to make with all my free time during my internet blackout LOL! I had this idea in my head for a while after seeing a little Christmas wreath that was covered in fake frost and snow. It is my Christmas card for my hubby. I have used papers by Magnolia and an unknown scrap from my stash.

I love this Tilda with her heart snowball - so sweet! I've coloured her with copics and added some stickles to her hat and scarf. As I've cut her out I replaced the stamped snowflakes with ones created with a snow pen.

I've actually sprayed the whole card with glimmer mist, including Tilda, so here's a shot of how shimmery she looks!

I have created the wreath around the edge with leaves from the Tim Holtz tattered pinecone die (my absolute favourite die now) and then added lots of Christmas details. The pinecones were created from kraft cardstock with the tattered pinecone die (did I say it's my favourite LOL?) I love the pinecones it makes and it saves having to scrabble around on muddy walks for the real thing! I've given them all a coating of snow with the snow pen too. The white lily flowers are from Running with Scissors and I've given them a touch of stickles.

There are also stars cut with a sizzix die and coated in stickles and lots of Papermania jingle bells in various sizes also covered in snow.

Of course, I had to add snowflakes too - in various shapes and sizes and I've added gems from Whiff of Joy to the centres of them.

I added a poinsettia cut with a Marianne die on top of a double bow of organza ribbon from my stash. The sparkly centre piece is from The Hobby House as is the crystal flower below the poinsettia.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
