I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year. I have enjoyed my holiday break and am looking forward to a wonderful creative year ahead. Today It is my great pleasure to be sharing a project with you as GDT for the Time For Magnolia challenge

The theme is ‘Winter Wonderland’. I’ve been thinking about making an explosion box card for a while and thought this would be the perfect opportunity, I’ve used Magnolia Old Monogram DP and my favourite Snowy Hug Tilda along with the very cute Mini Joyful Tilda and Mini Jingle Bell Rudolph to create this pretty explosion card:front 2

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40 clothes and rudolph: E47, E44, E43, E42, E40, W5, W3, W1, W00, C3, C1, C00 snowie: C3, C1, C00, BG10  I added some sparkle with Kindy Glitz (This post is quite picture heavy to give a good view of the box)

The side panels have another sentiment on each:

When you open the box there is a surprise inside:
