December challenge-Get in shape!

With your card, that is! The challenge is to make a Magnolia card that is any other shape EXCEPT rectangle or square. Please join in the challenge for the chance to win a $10.00 Gift Certificate to Diana's store-Magnolia-licious! HERE are the details and where to link your card! A side benefit of the challenge is what I discovered-making the card into a shape was fun!! I really could mass produce these-nothing fancy! I colored Tilda then decided she needed to sit in the new Snow Circle which is also from the recent release of new images! It's right HERE!
the Tilda is called Santa's Helper and she is there, too!
To do this you fold your paper in half and lay it in the Nestability die with the top going above the die and then cut it! Easy!
I stamped the snowy circle in black on white paper and then went over the design with BG10 and BG72 copics. After that Iput it back in the die and used my stencil brush for a soft coating of Aqua Mist ink. Then I added Stickles

Tilda is colored with copic. The blues are BG0000, and BG10 and the face is my usual colors. I will look up the number, but the red is Strong Red and the darker color is R59.

The way the die is cut leaves two little holes so I threaded this silver cord through to show it could also be an ornament. Or how about stamping the inside and hanging it over the neck of a bottle of wine as a gift. A magnet could be used to hold the card together for either of these ideas.
I'm pretty crazy about this one and hope you like it too!
Thanks so very muchfor visiting and for your comments!
Cheryl

Wow, Cheryl, this is so, so cute! Love the colors, and the circle. I'm really hoping my Winter and Christmas Magnolias come soon. I'm so envious of all the cute images I'm seeing that I'm not getting to use. This one is just darling, and I'd order the snow circle, but don't know if it might be part of the group that's coming. Arghh! Well done on your "not a square or rectangle" challenge.

This came out so cute with the snowflake circle. I am not sure about where you folded in half because I don't see any crease in the paper. But this is cute! Carol M in TX / carolswingster77@aol.com
