Just Magnolia- Something New

Good morning dear followers.

For this weeks challenge #175 over at Just Magnolia and hAnglar & stAnglar challengeblog, we have a lovely new challenge for you:

Use something new on your card!

To be eligible for the prize you MUST use a Magnolia or hAngler stamp!

I have started making Christmas cards, and thought I would have a go at a pop- up card, something I have never done before. I struggled a little, but it was fun! What do you think?

 The NEW stuff on my card is the gorgeous bells and angels charms. Aren't they lovely?, and also the berries from Kort og Godt I put in the middle of the flowers. I used papers from  Pion Design Christmas collection, Ventan på Tomten II, Cheese cloth, Prima Flowers, the dies are Magnolia Doohickey's: Christmas trees and mini doily. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink- vintage photo, and used my sewing machine around the edges. I also made little pearls with the Liquid pearl to create some "snow" on the trees.

Here's a closeup of the charms and the sentiment stamp.

I inked up 3 Christmas Magnolias and really went crazy on the 
I colored the images with Copic Markers. Colors used:
Skin: E13-11-00-000, Hair: E49-47-31-29-27-25
Clothes and shoes: R89-59-46-37-27-24-22-20, C5-3-1, E39-37-35-33-31-30
Ornament: C5-3-1/ Liquid pearl.
Here is the front of the card.
I used a Kort og Godt Stamp, stamped with crackle paint, the punch is from Martha Stewart.

Hope you like it. I would like to enter my card into the 
Magnolia Down Under Challenge:  #164 Pop up card.

Thank you for visiting my blog!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Kan nog inte bli mycket juligare än så här! Gillar ideen med att placera bären i mitten av blommorna, kanske norpar den någon gång i framtiden! :-) Som vanligt, helt fantastisk färgläggning!
