Welcome to the first of our monthly Magnolia-licious Christmas Card Blog Hops. This group was created for Magnolia lovers who want to get a jump on the Christmas season by creating a Christmas card each month. If you are visiting this blog hop, I hope it will inspire you to get ahead of the holiday season and join us in our endeavor.
For my first card, I made this nice vintage card using the sketch from Magnolia Stamp Lovers. Here is the sketch...
and here is my card...
Stamps: Tilda with Vintage Roses
Paper: Soft Suede (SU!), Out and About (My Mind's Eye)
Ink: Staz-On Black, Ranger Distress Ink, Copics
Embellishments: Copics Airbrush System, Prima's, Leaf Punch (EK Success), Branch Punch (Martha Stewart), Organza Ribbon, Spellbinders Labels 3, Joann Craft Essentials Brad, Hodgepodge Hardware brads.
I went for the vintage feel with this card with lots of distressing and distress water coloring. For Tilda's background, I did a combination of water coloring and sponging with 2-3 different colors.
I used my Copics Airbrush System to color my white flowers to match the color scheme of the card.
I just want to thank Deb from the Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group for all of the support with this Christmas group. If you are not part of the group and would like to join, I would also like to say a special thanks to Diana for providing a special sale on a Christmas stamp each month in support of this Christmas Blog Hop. I hope you will go visit Magnolia-licious to see all the great Magnolia stamps she has to offer.
