Joy Christmas Card using Tilda with Gift

Who wouldn't be full of joy if this cute Tilda came to the door holding her gift?! I think she's the sweetest thing in the world! I colored my Tilda with Copics and then did all my shading with chalks. The great thing about chalks is that if you mess up you can take a little chalk eraser, erase it, and start over! Gotta love a quick do-over if a mistake happens, LOL!

I added white flower soft to the white areas of Tilda's hat and coat. To make the buttons shiny I added CTMH Liquid Glass. Then I added gold stickles to the gold ribbon around the present and red stickles to the little dots on the wrapping paper (although it's hard to tell in the photos, the present does sparkle!). I cut Tilda out and raised her on popdots on the white CTMH cardstock.

I used my MS punch to make the snowflake border. I backed the white paper with some green and cut around it. I also added stickles to the "leftover" snowflakes that were punched out and glued them around Tilda.

The red, glittered snowflake dp behind Tilda came from My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter paper pack. I'm not sure who makes the green, tree dp (the cover to my paper pack got lost and there's no info on the back of the sheet). The word JOY also came from another sheet in this same paper pack. I just cut out the letters and put pop dots behind them. To finish off the card, I added large and small sparkle jewels to the corners of both dp's.

The awesome green, grosgrain ribbon came from Crafty Ribbons and is called Snowflakes-forest/white.

I punched out some larger snowflakes with a MS punch in white and green and glued on a lot of MS glitter. Here's a close up pic of the larger snowflakes. After layering the snowflakes on top of each other, I added little, green gems to the centers and raised them on popdots.

These are the challenges I'm entering my card in:

Anything Goes - Christmas has come Early
A Spoonful of Sugar - Sparkle & Shine
City Crafter - Hooray for the Holidays
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
Totally Tilda - Glitter & Sparkle

Well, that's all my Christmas cards for now. Hopefully, I'll be back soon with some more holiday cards. Every year, I always have the big idea that I'll make my own Christmas cards and then I get so far behind and end up just buying a box. I guess there's always next year if I don't get it done this year, LOL!

Happy Scrapping and see ya'll soon (that's the Oklahoman coming out in me)!
