Cozy Coat Tilda


It’s time for a new challenge at Fussy & Fancy Challenges and this time the challenge is…..

‘Happy Holidays’.

For my card today I’ve used a new Christmas Tilda called ‘Tilda in Cozy Coat’ from the Waiting for Christmas Collection and created this pretty Christmas Card.


I have stamped my image onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are: Skin – E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E49, E47, E44, E43, E41; Boots & Coat - BG75, BG72, BG70; Pants & Mittens; R46, R43.

My image has been cut out using the Large Classic & Scallop Nestabilites.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


I’ve added some Snow-Tex to the furry parts of the coat and a little around the bottom of the image for snow. 

The pretty papers I’ve used are by My Mind’s Eye and are called Mistletoe Magic ‘Snowflakes’.

The Snowflake border, medium & small snowflakes are all Joy Crafts dies by Noor Design. I’ve added a Rhinestone to the snowflakes and also some Dazzling Details to add lots of sparkle.

Here’s another photo
