Magnolia Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda

Hi Everyone

Sitting here fresh from the dentist, with a top lip the size of a large gob stopper! Root canal treatment has taken it's toll...and another one to look forward to next week. Oh joy!
 
I have been making a few Christmas cards lately. I love making them, even though it's summer. There is always a time for snow in my head. I do feel a bit silly singing carols though, but I can't help it. Ear worms!
 
"Sparkle Poinsettia Tilda," is a favourite of mine and when she is glittered and be-jewelled, she always looks good. I have matched her to pretty Maja Christmas papers, cut with
Go Kreate dies. The edges have been inked and stitched.
 
 
I've used Magnolia dies for the snow flakes, cut in both kraft and white Bazzill card, then covered with snow-tex and glamour dust. A doily peeps from behind the second paper. The pretty die at the very back and the deer at the bottom are both Joy Craft dies. 
The white poinsettia is a Prima embellishment, I added some sparkly stamens and some snow-tex'd leaves. The organza bow holds a sparkly diamant√© snowflake, I love these!
Most of the embellishment's used are to be found on The Ribbon Girl or Live and Love Crafts.
The lace was kindly sent from  Jules Ribbons and Cards.
( Perfect for cards as it's stiff enough to hold it's shape )

Tilda was coloured with distress re inkers. I have used liquid pearls dotted inside the poinsettias, around her and on the deer.

I will be back at the weekend with my Tildas Town DT card.
stay safe and well 'till then,
Hugs
Christina
