New challenge - Marvelous Magnolia - Magnolia Pop up Card

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely relaxing weekend. George, Katie and Kyra came over for dinner on Saturday and the rest of time we spent relaxing. 

We have a new challenge today at Marvelous Magnolia and our theme this time is Polka Dots.

For a complete change I made a Christmas pop up card, using a mixture of old and new Magnolia stamps. I haven't made a pop up card for years and really enjoyed making it, although it was quite time consuming and I'm quite a slow crafter too. 

The papers are from a Craftwork Cards Christmas paper pad. I have distressed the edges and mounted it onto some pink card. The die at the top is a Noor Design die which has had lashings of Diamond dust sprinkled over (I love this stuff). Tucked underneath the flowers is a Magnolia fir leaf die and a Memory box loopy rings die. The ribbon and flowers are from my stash and the lace and pearl bead is from the  Ribbon Girl.

Inside the card I have coloured up Winter Night Background, Tilda with Lantern and Christmas Candle Tilda. On the base on the card is  pull out tag and a Marianne Poinsettia die which has been edged with structure paste.

Our lovely Jenny is sponsoring this challenge, so pop over to her blog to see what lovely goodies she is giving away.

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.
