Well, this is a first for me today…I've always admired the "cluttered" type of cards but never managed to pluck up the courage to have a go, that is, until today.
I've had a Magnolia stamp for a couple of years now which I always thought was cute so decided to put Edwin to the test!
I coloured him with Promarkers and no, he isn't that suntanned in real life! Used some flowersoft for his hat and then die cut him with a Spellbinders die and inked the edges. Covered the shaped card (another first for me!) with Magnolia paper and added a couple more bits which had been distressed around the edges. Then added all the bits - webbing, bobble ribbon, snowflake dies and Christmas tree dies, all covered in glitter and stickles! Finally, used an old sentiment from Studio G and again added a bit of ink and glitter around the edges. Must admit, was quite pleased with the result.
I'm entering this card in the CCT challenge "Dies and Punches" and also the Papertake Weekly Challenge "Oh How Cute".
