So, lots and lots of Christmas cards from now on. Here's one more. Another story to go with this card... hee, hee. This is Big Sis looking for Little Sis Tilda, who just can't wait to see what Santa has brought her.
So, this card is for all the challenges with a Christmas-theme challenges:
Magnolia-licious Yahoo Group December home page challenge.
Stamp With Fun Challenge 35 - X-mas.
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 80 - Non Tradional Christmas Colours.
This simple sketch from Mojo Monday Week 115 challenge is just perfect.
This is a shadow box card. Suzanne gave me the link to the tutorial for it. And as I usually ended up doing, I altered the measurements to suit my card. Here’s the link: shadow-box-card tutorial. This is just one of them--I’m sure there are many others out there.
The 2 images of Tilda I used here are from Magnolia’s So Jolly& Under the Mistletoe 2009 Collection: Christmas Morning Tilda and Unwrapped Tilda.
The clock is actually from a clear-stamp image of a stopwatch. Sorry, I don’t know who makes the stamp as I threw away the package it came in. I bought the stamp set a long time ago before I started blogging and knew that I’m supposed to be keeping those kind of details.
The mini calendar I made with the help of my laptop and printer. I printed the “DEC” and the numbers 25 to 31, inclusive. I cut them out in little rectangles and distressed the edges of each a bit. I glued the numbers together at the top to bind them into a booklet. Then glued that on black cardstock and arrange the month on top.
I wanted to see Tilda sitting in front of a Christmas tree, but I wanted a more 3-dimensional tree, rather than just a stamped image. This is how I did my tree—very easy.
