A Magnolia Tilda Christmas Card

Good Morning Everyone
Just before I set off to the dentist, I thought I would add a Christmas card to my blog,
I made this weeks ago, while experimenting with masking, and used three stamps together.

It was painted with distress re-inkers, an 00 brush and Langton Hot Press paper. There is also gesso and copious amounts of Glamour Dust.

I used Magnolia papers, from a few years back, with
Go Kreate dies to shape the card.
  An old but pretty Marianne die adds interest to the back and a Spellbinders die makes a frame for the image.The papers are stitched, and have a little gesso on the edges. 
I then gathered some ivory lace and added a Maja border.
The flowers have tiny Pinecones and berries with gesso and Glamour Dust and I've added a pretty diamanté Snowflake to an organza bow. Most of these embellishments can be found at Live and Love Crafts.
I really love making Christmas cards and would like nothing more than make them all year if I could.
Have a lovely day!
