Christmas at Divas By Design

Hello and Merry Christmas at Divas By Design.
Did you guess what our theme is at this weeks challenge?
We are having a special surprise gift for the lucky winner of this challenge!

Here is my card that I made for Divas By Design challenge

Magnolia Christmas paper all distressed and sewn together. I opened the middle and rolled the edges of the papers to show all 3 patterns.

Here is Christmas Bear from Magnolia colored in Distressed Inks. He has crystals on the white part of his hat.  It is really hard to see, but, there are crystals along the sides of the open rolled edges also.
The zipper rolled flower is from a friend and looks great at the end of the opening.

I used LaLa Lands newest dies Heart Doily Border, poinsettias and snowflakes.  The tall birch tree is from Memory Box Dies.

I adhered crystals and glitter to the poinsettias with some brads. My brads are old and coveted, I am a hoarder of fine things. lol

Both sides of the card has a rolled opened bottom, distressed with inks.  I have a tag with Magnolia minis stamped on and then a Spellbinders die for your note.

The layer view

I hope you enjoyed my card!

  2. Some people make a card with a bear on it for the holidays, but only you go to the extremes and create a world of amazing surroundings for him! The rolled paper is just the's a magical, mystical creation Kelly. Thank you for adding the side view. That completely shows it off. Incredible job here :)
