It's October 25 - A Christmas Card...

I was so excited to receive my Magnolia Fall Kit. When I saw this adorable Gingerbread Tilda, I just had to ink her up. I found this perfect sketch at Papertake Weekly...


...and here is my card...


You can find Gingerbread Tilda available for preorder at 7 Kids College Fund. This paper has become my favorite Christmas paper for the year. It is called A Country Christmas from The Paper Studio.


The background stamps are from a Gingerbread set by Martha Stewart. A Country Christmas. I used a mix of flock and glitter for the snow.


This little tree is actually cut from the paper pack. I used Crystal Effects to make it more substantial and to give it some shine.


The snowflake is from Stampin' Up! and has a rhinestone brad to give it some character.

I hope this inspires you to get started on those Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by today!

Julie your card is just beautiful and I feel so guilty that I've fallen so far behind on my Christmas Cards. I love your dp! It's so crackled and it's so vintage looking. Your Tilda is beautifully colored as well. A wonderful card...hugs...Barb
