Good morning everyone. Today I wanted to show you a traditional Red and Green Christmas card that I have created for this weeks challenge over at the Totally Tilda Challenge Blog. I decided that this time I would do something a little different, so I have made my first easel card. I really like the look of these cards and with the help of some instructions I have successfully pulled it off.
Tilda with Gifts has been coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils then accented with Stickles to give her a little sparkle. I have cut her out and popped her up in front of a background that I cut using my spellbinders and inked with Distress inks.
The card has been put together using some of the new Basic Grey Jovial collection (I think that this is my favourite Christmas paper ever as the colours are so rich and traditional). The border has been punched using the new Martha Stewart snowflake border punch which is destined to become a favourite of mine. I have stickled around both sentiments for some extra sparkle and added a bow and some Prima poinsettias. To add one last traditional touch I have punched some leaves and added some red pearls to resemble the fresh greens that we hang every year.
I hope that this card has put you all in the Holiday spirit. Have a great day and stop by again soon.
