Tilda with presents..

Tilda header
Were at the Mid way stage of our theme at Totally Tilda chall of “Going Postal for Christmas”
you need to use a Post Mark/ Post Card or a Postage Stamp on your CHRISTMAS Tilda creation..
you can of course use all 3 if you want.. I went for a Monochromatic colour combo on  this one.
Base card stock is SU Crumb cake,  papers are from Maja Design “Its Christmas Time” pad.
Tilda with presents is coloured with me prismas, distressed & frantaged the edges.
Santa Post card is from Pinkgemdesign  HERE  printed onto some of the Raja design DP,
more distressing & Frantage, Mag. swirl flourish with SU card stock, S/flakes are MS punches.
poinsettia is SB dies.The pearls are “Chocolate Heaven” from The Hobby House I got these off
Jill’s stand when I went to Harrogate show..

Ooh wowww Christine... this is fabulous! I love that monochrome colouring... it really has the 'oooh' factor! And the splash of Frantage too... perfect!

And yes... I was there with the pinking shears too.. cutting out tags... my girls and me used to love making things! (Don't think I've changed too much!)

Big hugs

what a lovely holiday card & the perfect use of that adorable image! glad you could join our celebration of holiday traditions at JINGLE BELLES!!! :)

ps: we made our tags the same way... or by cutting out our favorite images from scraps of giftwrap... i think that might be where my lifelong love of paper began!!! :)

Kat W said...

Wow, this is just stunning! The colour scheme is so elegant and the sprinklings of Frantage are gorgeous :-)

Ah yes, I remember making tags the same way too! I still love making the presents look all pretty, just in a slightly more elaborate way now!

Big hugs, Kat xx
