Home for Christmas......


I hope that you are well and not too stressed. Can you believe that we only have four more sleeps until the big day!

Here is a card that I made using Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams images.

I have masked Winter Tilda and stamped Welcome to a Sweet Christmas image behind her. I used Archival Coffee to stamp my images onto 300gsm watercolour paper.
The stickles I have added are Star Dust.
The die cuts are Magnolia Doohickeys.

Everything has been distressed with Walnut Stain.

Here for the inside left of my card. I have pin pricked the edges. The Magnolia Santa's Sack has been stamped and then the wax seals have been glossed with Glossy Accents. 
The die cut is Magnolia Mistletoe.

I have stamped Christmas Love Holly in the corner and added Sakura glitter pen to the hearts.

Thank you so much for visiting with me and I wish you all a great rest of the week!
