Ballerina Tilda the Star of the Nutcracker
I hope you are all having a good week! I just started a new job yesterday which is closer to home and I feel like I have gained so much time to do the things I love to do. Yes, the most important crafting....
Today I would like to share with you a criss cross card with a Christmas Flair showcasing beautiful Ballerina Tilda. I am totally obsessed with some of the Graphic 45 paper and I got the Nutcracker paper a couple of weeks ago and well this is the first opportunity I have had to use it. I thought she was perfect for the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Collection paper. I used Memory Box Dies Frosty Border and Crystal Snowflake and Marianne Snowflake Die. To add richness to the color scheme I used Seedless Preserves Distress Ink on the edges of the paper. Ballerina Tilda was colored with Copic markers. Her crown was decorated with glitter and some bling. To complete the card I added bling, gold ribbon and the ballerina slippers. Inside the card I used Spellbinders Scallop Label one and the sentiment is "Christmas Ticket" from Memory Box.
