Loving Christmas Wishes

Hi! Thanks for dropping by! So happy you're here! This 5.5" card features Vintage Tilda (#3063) from Magnolia-licious. I colored her with my copics and cut her out because I wanted to feature her on a creamy (vintagy) background to match the papers I'd chosen. Yep, it's Basic Grey Jovial AGAIN!

I colored and cut out one of the Magnolia-licious benches for her to sit on. I don't see this one is my search for 'bench', but there are others and there are lots of things for our favorite kids to sit on in "furniture" I REALLY want the bench with the holly! (Next order, it's mine!)
The ticket stamp is also from Magnolia, but I don't see it in inventory. You could check with Diana if interested.
I stamped Tilda twice and cut out a separate arm/ornament. I also colored a second face and raised that with Silicone gel. There are stickles on her lace and spica pen on the ornament for some shine.

Her close up-the 'chin' didn't glue down well this time. When I get the edges glued down her face has a nice rounded appearance. It's tough to get glue in there afterward so I just left it this way.

Several have asked, so here is a picture of the Dimensional Silicone that I use under images. I get it from Buffalo Stamps and Stuff (my LSS).
Guess I've said enough about this card!
Enjoy your day! Wow! Thursday already! I'm grateful that the roads should be passable again today!

Pretty Christmas card and I love using the benches from Magnolia to sit the kiddies on. Never though about just popping up the face before. You are just full of all kinds of ideas today. Thanks!
