Tilda With Christmas Cracker

Hi everyone! Today I've a pretty magnolia christmas card to share. I only have a couple magnolia stamps and know I don't often ink them up but when I do they are totally addicting!!!  I paired Tilda with white and burgundy patterned paper from Sandylion. I'm entering this card in the Magnolia Stamp Lovers "red and white" and Dutch Magnolia Lovers "back in time" challenges.

My card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with In A Nutshell Patterned Paper. The shadow layer is Swirling Snowflakes Patterned Paper layered on Bravo Burgundy finished on both sides using the Eyelet Border Punch. I also wrapped gold trim around the shadow layer and taped the ends down on the back side.

The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers and spica pens. I distressed the edges of the patterned papers and image using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. To embellish the card I added two burgundy paper flowers finished with a snow pearl, a white knit flower finished with a pearl snowflake and snow pearls in each corner of the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
