Tilda has a Secret...

Happy Thursday, y'all! Christmas is getting closer and closer and I am lovin' all of the Christmas images!

Secret Tilda arrived at my doorstep a few weeks ago from 7 Kids College Fund and I could not wait to use her. I inked her up and colored her while on vacation over Thanksgiving.
I used more DP from the Wonderful Winter DP stack by MME. This is my new favorite paper! Hope you don't get sick of it! It goes great with Old Olive and Riding Hood Red SU cardstock. The poinsettas are Making Memories. I put a dew drop in the center of each and covered it with some Lime Stickles. The fern punch can be found here. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession. I used a corner rounder on it and then colored it with Copics, giving it the distressed look. There are some tiny red rhinestones on the holly. I added the same technique to the panel with Tilda on it.

To achieve that weathered look around the edges, I used E43, E42, E41, E40 and 00 Copic Markers.
Supplies:
Stamps - Secret Tilda (Magnolia Stamps), Sentiment (Impression Obsession)
Paper - Wonderful Winter DP (MME), cardstock (SU)
Accessories - sewing machine, fern punch, poinsettas (Making Memories), Dew Drops, Rhinestones, Stickles, Nestabilities, ribbon (SU), corner rounder
Have a great day!

Hi, Tori!
Your card is so very Chrissy! I especially love the double stitching. I wonder if I could do that too. It seems more difficult than the straight type:). Tilda is colored beautifully and the embellies just make it perfect. Love it!
Hugs, iulia
