Something Christmas

Our Challenge this week at Tilda's Town  is "Something Christmas"
  

I have created a Criss Cross Shaker card using 2 little cuties from the Magnolia Christmas Story collection ; Tilda with Little Rudolf  and Tilda with Lovikka Mittens and colored with copics.


Papers are from My Minds Eye, Lost and Found Christmas collection with Capers and Kraft Bazzil  cardstock.  My Kraft Cardstock was inked with Gathered Twigs distress inks and they misted with a mixture of water and Gold Perfect pearls.  Love the gold shimmer.


For the shaker part, I used Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large and Scalloped dies and embossed the acetate with my new Cuttlebug Chicken Wire Folder.



Flowers and Ribbon is from Wild Orchid Craft, Candy Canes are from Button Galore


TIP:  For my Tilda with Lovikka Mittens, I matted her to Kraft cardstock and added Glossy accents, this makes it more solid and less likely to rip when pulling on the insert card.




So come and  join us in our challenge this week for a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to Tilda’s Town online Magnolia store
