A Magical Christmas

Happy Friday, all! Taylor has announced a TESC break here, just in case you are wondering what happened to the regular TESC posts. =) Is it wrong that I am trying to come up with a card design for a image that's colored, cut out all ready to go, but at the same time I am thinking about which image to use on another sketch card? Or how many grammatical mistakes I made in the above run-on sentence? Ok, don't answer that last question, I know it's bad! LOL! I know I have issues... That aside, here is another holiday card. =)


I used the lovely A Magical Christmas for this card. Have I mentioned that I love RAM's images? This one is so sweet!


After cutting her out with a die, I inked the piece with tumbled glass distress ink when the paper was still in the die. I then covered her snow globe with Glossy Accents and added some star dust Stickles to the snowflakes.


I paired her with Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather collection. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the seam binding is dyed with the yummy milled lavender distress ink.

That's all for today. Have a magical Friday, my friends! =)



Thanks for stopping by!
