Maggie Card Kit

A while ago I participated in a Magnolia Kit swap. This is where each participant made up “kits” containing some colored cardstock, patterned papers, some embellishments and at least one stamped Magnolia Image. We made up 6 of the same kits and swapped them for 5 different ones and the hostess gets to keep one kit for the time and effort it takes to bring the swap all together…believe me it is worth more than one kit to do this…thanks Audrey Benno our hostess!

This card is made up from a kit from Elaine Atterbury. It came with way more embellishments than I placed on my card and two patterned papers that I just couldn’t make work with the card I had in mind. I will place the remaining items on other cards that I create later on.

I also used the Atyou Spica pens. These are really pretty in person. You get a very fine glitter where you put them without the thickness of glitter glue. It is about as thick as ball point pen ink. Great for very fine areas. They are a bit pricey, but well worth it for the end result in my opinion.

Copics used are:
Skin: E000, E01, E02, R20
Hair: E31, E35, E25, E27
Hair Bow: R37 and Red Spica
Dress and Socks: G40, G82
Candy Canes: R000, R29
Bow on Present: R000, R02
Present: G85 and Gold Spica
Pinafore and Shoes: W00

I also used the Petite Oval Small and Scalloped Large
Christmas Party Tilda by Magnolia is the Image.
