Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop #3


It's that time of the month again! No, not THAT time...hehehe! It's time for the third Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop! Woohoo. I'm the fourth person on the list so if you have come here from Annabelle's blog your right on target. If you just jumped into the blog at my site, then please click on the link above and start with Julie's blog.

For this months' card I used Silent Night Tilda which you can purchase here. I purchased this gorgeous DP by Kaiser Scrapbook called Winter Wonderland. I just loved the beautiful flourishes in burgandy on a cream/gold/bluegreen background. And it matched beautifully with the silk ribbon I had on hand. So, yeah! I had all the elements ready to go.

Here's my card:



I used the Scalloped Edge Frame Die from Nestabilites to create the panel that Tilda is on. It has these pretty little notches all around the edges. I used my Bow Easy to make the bow and attached my one and only snowflake charm to it matching the gold theme with gold pearls in the corners of both my panels.

Here is a close-up of Tilda:



Here is the inside of my card:



I purposely cut the inside piece of dp so that the ornament on the paper showed just below the ribbon. I wove a strip grosgrain ribbon through my lace and then glued a bow of silk ribbon to the center.

My bottom panel was cut and then two corners were rounded and a gold pearl added to two of the corners. I stamped the Vintage Christmas stamp to the bottom corner. All my panels are sewn on my sewing maching.

My image was colored with Copic Markers and here are those that I used:



From here you want to hop on over to Cheryl's blog and check your her wonderful creation. Thanks so much for joining us today on the Hop and I hope you enjoy the remeinder of your journey!

  36. Oh Barb, fabulous card. I love this Tilda—my 2nd fave from that collection. Your DP is gorgeous—ooh, those flourishes!!! Your attention to details is remarkable with your placements of the ornaments, the way you weave the ribbons through the lace and all. Hmm…I think I must invest in one of those Easy Bow. Love the card.
