Tilda With Jolly Wreath.

Hi, crafty bloggers.
I hope you are all well?
It's another Christmas card from me and this time I have made a shaped card featuring
Tilda With Jolly Wreath.

I have made the card base with 300gsm white Conqueror card and cut the shape out with  GoKreate large frilly frames #2.
The gorgeous papers are called Frosty Christmas from Lili Of The Valley.
I have lightly sanded the edges of the papers.
I have used Neenah cardstock to cut out a Spellbinders floral oval and stamped Tilda With Jolly Wreath onto it with Memento "Toffee Crunch" ink.
I have coloured the image with Polychromos pencils and sprinkled some Fran~tage white shabby embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts around it.
The doily is from Ebay and the beautiful lace is from The Ribbon Girl.
I die cut a couple of Doohickey spruce firs and inked around the edges with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink. I coated the trees with Crafters Companion Spray & Sparkle and painted on some
Snow ~ Tex from Live & Love Crafts.
I have frantaged the metal filigree corner from Wild Orchid Crafts with shabby white embossing enamel.
The poinsettia die cut is Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz Tattered Poinsettia which my super bloggy
friend sent to me.
I have inked the edges of two of the leaves with Tim Holtz "Tea Dye" distress ink and sprayed them with Spray & Sparkle placing a blue brad through the centre.
The brad is also from my bloggy friend.
For the flower arrangement I have used a 25mm white curly rose from Wild Orchid Crafts and blue 20mm roses from The Ribbon Girl. I punched out a few woodland branches with a Martha Stewart punch and inked the edges of the branches with "Tea Dye" distress ink placing them in amongst the
I have coated the roses with Snow~Tex.
The Christmas stocking charm is from The Ribbon Girl
I have attached the charm with 2mm silver plated curb chain and silver plated rings which hangs
from the back of brad.
Inside the card has been decorated to compliment the front with Frosty Christmas paper and a GoKreate frilly frame which I have inked around the edges with "Tea Dye" distress ink.

I have added Glamour Dust to Tilda's hairband, bows, wings, socks and dress.
Lots of sparkle.
I have dotted Tilda's cheeks with Inkssentials opaque white pen.
I hope you like my Christmas card?
