Clean and Simple Tilda Xmas Card



The challenge this week at Magnolia-licious Highlites is to make a Tilda card that is "clean and simple."

These are the rules:
-less than 3 layers
-uncluttered and lots of white space (so there is only one focal point)
-simple embellishments and simple in design
-can be mass produced easily


Magnolia-licious Highlites is also hosting a blog hop right now for these clean and simple cards.

I used Magnolia Tilda w/ Xmas Stockings, sharpies to color her, Martha Stewart Loops punches, ribbon from my stash, and my score pal to score lines above and below the ribbon (they are a little hard to see in the photo).

Winter Wonderland's challenge is Christmas Stockings.  Since I used Tilda w/ xmas stockings (and stamped a stocking inside the card) I figured that it would apply.
