So Heavenly Tilda

Please scroll down 2 posts to the Blue Butterfly Stamps Day 3 Preview Post... there's candy up for grabs

Here's another square Christmas card, featuring a Magnolia stamp and yes.. more random gems - this time they represent snow...

I'm so happy with this card, though the sentiment was supposed to run along the top, until I smudged some silver ink and had to use the white strip and ribbon to cover it! I think it turned out better this way!
I heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder.. I use my hair straightener to do this lol! This photo really catches all the sparkle - it's not this blinding IRL!

I had to add the CB snowflakes over the gorgeous ones already on Jak's DP cause I thought I'd add some glimmer glaze to them... well, apparently my print card doesn't like the glimmer glaze, and it sort of bled into it without adding any sparkle! Such a shame too, cause the snowflakes already there were stunning. Does it look like she's trying to catch the snowflakes? That was what I was hoping to achieve! Hope you all have a lovely Sunday - scroll down to the Day 3 Victorian Sweetheart Preview... leave comments on all 6 posts and your name with Mr Linky on Dec 15ht, and you'll get a chance to win your very own Charlotte stamp in rubber. ♥

haha! You used your hair straightener to heat emboss? When I first started stamping YEARS ago, my friend and I used an iron!!! Too funny!
Your card is beautiful and very sparkly! Love the wording down the side!
Thanks for joining the Just Magnolia challenge this week!
