Magnolia Christmas Countdown

Finally, I made a christmas card using Magnolia christmas card.I love this Tilda and wanted to give her a gorgeous place to sit:-) I used My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly patterned papers that Bridget from UK kindly sent to me. Thank you very much my dear friends, Tanja and Bridget.

做Magnolia卡片的秘诀是什么呢?首先,上色很重要。我用的是Tim Holtz的distress ink pads.我的建议是把所有的颜色一次过买下来,因为我们不晓得我们什么时候需要什么颜色。其次,美编纸是重要的元素。最好选择颜色较轻的美编纸,我当然建议Magnolia本身的美编纸。

I used Distress ink pads to color Tilda, such as Vintage photo, Antique linen, Bundle Sage, Tattared Rose.I also used various flowers sent by Magnolia and my own stash to decorate the card.

再来就是装饰了。美丽的纸花最能让整张卡片出色。我建议用立体的纸花。市面上有很多纸花,Prima Marketing 推出很多纸花,但我还是喜欢这种立体的纸花,去哪买呢?看看这里吧:

I stained the spellbinder shape with vintage photo and I used the leftover star from the punched snowflakes border to decorate the spellbinder shape too.


Here is how the card look like when I open it from the front page. The Christmas Countdown tag is from My Mind's Eye patterned paper pack too. I stamped the white cardstock with Stempelglede Grunge stamp, it's so beautiful:-)

Hope you enjoy looking my card and I am glad if I have inspired you. Hope you have a great day.
