Another Christmas Card

 
I made another Christmas card with the cute Tilda Angel from Magnolia Stamps - the same image as on yesterday's card.  I had stamped several images so colored her to match the challenge at The Merry Monday Christmas Card Club #73 challenge - use red, green and kraft with a choice of ribbon, twine or burlap.  She is stamped on X-Press It Blending Card with Mememto Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copics.  I paper-pieced her dress with a piece of Crumb Cake DSP.  I added distress stickles to her wings, which doesn't show up in the photo.  I cut her out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals and matted her on a Large Scallop Oval.  I inked around the image panel with Crumb Cake ink while it was still in the die.  The tag is punched with a McGill punch and the sentiment is from MFT's Christmas Ornaments set.  I made a small slit around her hand and glued the twine under it - so she would be holding the tag and mounted both with foam tape.  I also wrapped the twine around the red DSP in a criss-cross pattern.
 I used SU Riding Hood Red CS for the card base and Crumb Cake (kraft) CS for the mats. The DSP is from Recollections Festivites 6x6 pad.
 
 
I am also linking my card to the following:

Happy Stamping,
