Yet another Friday!
This ends my week of Christmas cards and I hope you've enjoyed it.
Todays card uses a stamp I've never made into a card before and if you are a Magnolia lover you'll know that poor Edwin often gets overlooked for his sister Tilda.
But I needed to use him for a challenge and I'm really glad I did :)
He covers 6 challenges:
Magnolia Down Under gave me the Christmas in July theme
Magnolia-licious Highlites wanted an Edwin card in celebration of their Blog Hop
Simon Says Stamp had a wondeful sketch form the talented Dawny P
Creative Inpirations asked us to distree our cards
Colour Throwdown gave me the color combo of Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and Perfect Plum
A Spoon Full of Sugar
wanted Swirls and Curls
This Edwin is Edwin with Lantern and I colored him with my Copic's. I matted him on y Nesties and distressed the edges slightly.
The background cardstock was embossed with the snowflakes Cuttlebug folder and then sanded and inked slightly. The poinsettia was colored with Copic's to match the papers and then sanded lightly too.
The swirls are a Big Shot die.
I left the inside fairly plain with a message mat made from the same Nestie as on the front.
A close up of Edwin. I find dark colors hard to shade with and I really don't have very many plum markers to work with.
I have a post tomorrow about a super container I found at Target on clearance that is perfect for my markers so be sure to check back.
Have a great rest of your Friday
