Hi all and a warm welcome to my blog today.
I am so lucky to be your host today for the Magnolia advent calendar , shutter 22
This is really exciting for me as it is my first time to do this traditional calendar from Magnolia.
With only Christmas two days away I guess you all are ready and done with your Christmas cards for this year. I always wish I had time to make more as I love to send out cards to my friends and family.
The card today is made for a dear friend of mine, that also love Magnolia so I hope she likes my card,- and I hope all you wonderful Magnolia friends like it too ♥
For my card I have used two of the lovely stamps from this years Christmas collection, Winter Wonderland 2013. I just love them all.
Magnolia always make the most wonderful Christmas stamps and every year it is so exciting to see them on the release. They never disappoint, more and more wonderful for every collection.
My choice of stamps today is "In the snow scarf Tilda" for the front and for the inside I have used "In the snow Tilda, Ski Tilda"
For my cardbase I have used a template from another dear friend of mine, Tammy Louise.
I love to use the ShapeEZ templates and even if I dont have a cutting machine it is super easy.
Sooo perfect for my images!
Every template comes with an instruction too, so you can't do wrong ;)
I have coloured my Tildas with my Copic to go with the amazing Magnolia papers from the same collection. I just love these papers. I bought a ton from my favorite shop, Kreativ Scrapping. Don't think I ever will get tired of using them ♥
Cutest Tilda ♥
The text is also from the Winter Wonderland Collection and obvious it's called "A Joyful Christmas"
Backside with my own personal stamp and my first Magnolia die, still going strong and still one of my favorites! LOVE this swirl from the Leaf &Swirl set
As snow I have used my favorite "Aleene's Glitter Snow" and I have put some fine glitter called Sugar Coating on top
Like always I have used flowers from WOC and Kort og Godt
The text on front comes from Norsk Stempelblad and it's from Juleplate1 and I stamped it one the Magnolia DooHickey small tag.
And a last peek of my whole card.
That was all from me for today
