A very Maggie Christmas

Finally finished my first Christmas card using a Magnolia stamp. The little angel Tilda was colored with an assortment of Copic markers and Smooch inks.

I used my Cricut machine to cut out the oval, and then used a brayer to apply Iridescent Gold and Forest Green glimmer sprays from Tattered Angels. I also coated the oval with a glaze to keep the glimmer from rubbing off.

The embossed background paper came from either Scrapbook.com or Addicted to Rubber Stamps (sorry -- I forgot where I bought it). The stickers are from Jolee's Boutique.

Obviously I need to find a better way to take pictures of my cards! I hope you can see it OK. I'll keep working on it.

  2. Very pretty. Love the sparkly branches. My photographer friend told me to set up a photo area near a north-facing window and try for afternoon sun. You may have to try every half hour to see what lighting works best for your area. Between 2-3 PM is best for me, here in the eastern US. Some people lay their cards right on a scanner bed.
