"Tis the Season"... Magnolia

I love tent cards....I think they are just the Cutest little cards and so quick to make...so I made a few Christmas ones.

This card has Magnolia's cute little snowman called "CH07 Edwin's Snowman" from {Magnolia} WINTER & CHRISTMAS SUPPLEMENT 2007. The sentiment is from Hotp (it's one of my favs..so you will notice I use it often...lol)

Magnolia has just released two new collections....2008 Jingle Jangle Collection and the New Valentine Collection 2009....You can find them both here

Magnolia stamps can be purchased from Phebe at The Town Scrapper, Diana Crick's Magnolia-licous store, Magnolia-A-Holic and the Magnolia Store.

On to the card...

Edwin snowman is popped up on dimensionals. The star is attached to a wire which is attached to the snowman.

I colored the snowman with prismacolor pencils (oms) and H20's

Paper - GP white, basic grey...figgy pudding, treasures CS, dcwv metallic

Ink - versafine black, bashful blue

Accessories - flowers, martha stewart punch, glitter, cord, ribbon, nesties, acrylic paint for accents, stitching, snowflake brad.

It is still very cold here.....and it looks like it will remain cold well into the xmas week. Brrr.... I baked bread and buns today.....so that warmed up the house a little......

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!!...and Thank You So Much for your Fabulous Comments!!!

Super stunning, Ila! I really love the design of this card with the Oval extending over the top of the card base! This snowman is soooo adorable and of course your colouring is what makes this card just pop....awesome!!! I really love the idea of adding the star on some wire. It is a bit tricky cutting around that star,smile!!! I think I might borrow that idea from ya,smile!!!
Well, I hope it warms up a bit for ya, there in Sask., but it sounds like you found a yummy way to stay warm,smile!

Beautiful card, Ila! I took the kids to see snow today for the very first time in NC mountains. Unfortunately, it has been in the 60's this past week so it was only man-made snow on the ski slopes. But the temps were 27 degrees so there were a few real snow flakes every once in awhile! Nothing like I am sure you are getting!! Stay warm!
