Magnolia Christmas Easel Card


This is my entry for the Magnolia-Licious Highlights Challenge Blog which was to make an Easel Card.  You can find the directions HERE on how to make this card.  You can change the dimensions of the card (mine is 6 x 4 1/4") to suit your needs.  I used 60's Tilda from Magnolia-licious A Little Yummy for Your Tummy collection and colored her using the Gamsol Magic technique.  CS used was Bazill Dotted Swiss paper  and Bazill Basics. The Glitter paper used is from Reminisce Under the Sea collection.  The glitter paper was cut with Spellbinders Lattice Pendants.  DP used is from Stampin' Up from the Merry Moments pack.  I think this is my favorite Christmas card so far!
