Merry Christmas to all of my Magnolia friends, today is my day to host the Magnolia DT advent. I hope you like what I have prepared for you.
Magnolia are kindly offering a wonderful Christmas gift to a lucky fan. Just leave a comment on my post and I will choose a comment and publish tomorrow.
My project is a card I've made to look like an envelope with a letter to Santa from Tilda and Edwin.
There is a silver embossed stamp and I have also dry embossed some cream card and printed Santa's address onto vellum and stitched and distressed the edges.
Some bells and die cut embellishments to decorate.
Inside... what do we find?
A little pop up scene with Tilda and Edwin playing in the snow. Do you think little Tilda is being cheeky?
Poor Edwin, I don't think he suspects a thing, do you? But little Rudolf has caught on, hehe.
We have a little "wish list" tag for the children to tell Santa what they would like to see under the tree Christmas morning... and a "Naughty or Nice" sentiment.... I wonder who is naughty and who is nice?
And here you can see a little bit how I have popped up the characters in the scene.
I thought acetate sheets would be the best so they were hidden, but it turns out they're a little tricky to stick!
A view from above.
Some embellishments inside. Lots of doo hickey die cuts. And Magnolia sentiments.
And finally the back of the card, the return address for Santa :)
So what do you think? Will Tilda and Edwin wake up to some presents on Christmas morning or is someone going to be disappointed? I hope Santa has a sense of humor, haha.
I hope you like my card. It is a bit more detailed than what I've been making lately and a great chance to challenge myself. It has been a hard year here for my family and we are very much looking forward to 2014.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year!
Remember - leave a comment to be in the running to win a present from Magnolia!
