Have A Cracking Christmas



Hello good morning. This is my last Magnolia Christmas card - at least i think so. Do you notice something? I used colored Cardstock as cardbase. I rarely do that, i don't but know for some reason i always pick white or vanilla. Since the base is black i finished the inside as well, so i was able to write my message with a pen instead of a white gel pen.


Since i had colored Tilda in just reds and some black i did not want to use papers with many other colors - luckily i have found in the stash this wonderful Wedding paper that did the trick with the tiny red dots in leaves of the floral paper. Stickles is on ornament, Christmas cracker and in the inside of the swirls of the big Christmas cracker. That's it :-) hope you like the card.


Stamps: Magnolia "Tilda from the Jolly Collection 2009, Christmas Cracker from the Magnolia Christmas Collection 2008 i got mine at Magnolia-liocus!
Sentiment: Amuse Art Stamps
Papers: Wedding papers (Source unknown found at Archivers)
Embellishments: Charm (Whiff of Joy), Swirls (Prima Marketing), Stickles (Golden Rod and Candy Cane Red), Satin Ribbon (Offray - Michaels)
