Let it Snow- ROP DT

Okay a quickie post to share another Special card with you, and again featuring the Magnolia So Jolly Collection, presently availabe at Roses on Paper. This time I used Sketch and Stash sketch, which had a Scalloped edge. Well I turned the sketch to make the scalloped edge on the bottom.

What I did was an easel card, having Silent Night music stamp as the background, stamped with Atlantic Versamark ink, and Distressed with Weathered Wood Distress ink.

The open view of the card.

Tilda with present is on her way through the snow, and she is going to deliver her lovely wrapped pressie to someone special. It was snowing, and on the road there were heaps of snow :) These were free hand drawn by me, and I used them as the scalloped edge on the sketch. There was even a charming snowman, lovingly made by some lively children.. what a cute guy!! :))

As you can see I used tons of Stickles on this one: Crystal, Frosted Lace, Silver and Turquoise.
I coloured Tilda with Distressed Reinkers, but Snowman is done with Copics. So, I can use this card for the following Challenges:

Copic Creations, who want to see snow people
Just Magnolia: A special card for someone special (and I have used 3 Magnolia stamps)
Sketch and Stash: Used the sketch and have new stamps here
A Spoon Full of Sugar: who want Monochromatic cards.

To embellish the card, I used a large glittered snowflake sticker, which I placed on the music. Then I made the organza ribbon, and on the bow I used a large spacer, Basic Grey brad, and two charms, which I dangled using two different heights for more interest. The large blue dewdrops are also from Roses on Paper, from the mint choc bottle. I love how clear they are.

Papers are the lovely Dovecraft Winter Wonderland. I wish I can double these papers, they are so lovely to use for a snowy effect.

On the inside I placed both a sentiment, which now you know it's a must on my Christmas cards, and I left another smaller white panel for jotting. I made also some faux stitches with a blue glitter pen, and distressed the edges with Broken China.

I hope you like it. I am having the time of my life with these Magnolia stamps, and if you want to make something special for this Christmas I reccomend that you go directly to Summer's Store and order them, before they are totally gone! Have a lovely rest of the week, and big Maggie hugs to you all :)

Copics used: Bluish colours: B000, B95, B97
Colours used for the snowman's lamp: Y0000, Y06, Y23, Yr16
(Cheeks are done with Distressed colours)

Thanks for looking
