A 3D winter card

Good morning creative peeps,
Well its been awhile since my last post to be honest I just haven't been in the blogging mood and I don't know why!? I have been trying out a 3D paper piecing technique with my magnolia stamps and this is what the snowy Tilda came out like... 
I stamped Tilda on white card several times then coloured, cut out and embossed on the reverse of each little piece. Die cut a circle of kraft card and stamp Tilda on it, I used Pin flair glue to make them 3D.
I should warn you this technique is addictive!! Lol

The base is a Craftwork Cards 6x6 scalloped edge card blank. I have taken the matting and layering over the top of the fold so the card looks bigger than it is.
Paper is DCWV Linen Closet.
The die cuts are Doo Hickey Christmas Poinsettia and then embossed,
Memory Box Frostyville Border and Pinwheel Posie.
Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish.
Other embellishments are swirl stamp stamped with white acrylic paint
Papermania silver shimmer dome stickers
Pearl stickpin
Crystal droplets
I have added white paint here and there over the embellishments to give a distress look to the card.
