Warm holiday wishes from a white winter wonderland

Hello. Happy Sunday!

Sorry, I haven't posted for a week now. Yikes! that's because I was working on 3, yes, 3 cards instead of just 1. I started with this one. I luvvvv white-on-white cards.


I've made this an easel card of course.




Here's a close-up to show the layers that I like, to give the card that more 3-dimensional look.


This image is from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011. She is called Winter Tilda. She was the first sneak-peek that I saw from the new stamp collection and I though she was just so adorable and I knew that the rest of the images were going to be just as adorable...and I was right! Check out the Collection at Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. Diana has a fabulous selection of anything and everything Magnolia (stamps--regular size and mini version, doohickey cutting dies, magazines ...) and excellent service to boot (discount and store credit too)!


And because I like white-in-white cards so much and I like this design/layout, I decided to make 2 additional cards. So, my 2nd card...


This is Tilda With Snow Heart. She is another adorable image from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011.


And the 3rd card...


This image is from last year's collection Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010 and she is called Tilda in Christmas Coat. I've added some liquid appliqué for the snow underneath Tilda's boots. My lovely friend Christine has sent it to me as I couldn't find it in the stores locally. (Thanks Christine, it works and looks great!)



Challenges that I am entering with these cards:

Paper Sundaes - Challenge #94 - Rectangles
