My first hAnglar and stAnglar card for Just Magnolia



Hi folks! Suddenly it was a normal spring day ie grey skies and a chilly wind! I hope the sunshine makes a return on Friday for all the people lining the route or having street parties!

I have at last got my first H and S stamps, a mini kit with a Bee Boy and Girl. Next month my dear friend's twins are being baptised, and they are perfect! I've made Isaac's card first, using the current sketch at Just Magnolia and Hanglar ans Stanglar because the sketch was just what I needed!

Papers are a mix - Kanban, 'Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady' freebie set from Cardmaking and Papercraft, and a loose blue leaf from stash - I embossed the latter with my Cuttlebug 'Daisies' folder but it doesn't show too well!

The ribbon on the left, which also isn't showing very well, is from stash. The flowers and the silver filigree corner are Wild Orchid, and just visible under the flowers are leaves made with a Magnolia Doohickey leaf die.

I stickled the little lad's wings and also round the edges of the papers. I hope it's not too flowery for a little boy, but I know his mum will like it!

Thanks for looking! Sleep well!

luv, Mags x

What a SWEET little creation. I'm such a fan of the hAnglars & just recently was able to get a few. You've colored this so perfectly & now It makes me want to get mine out & color them up. Lovely work.
Hugs, Janie
