In my last posting I have shown a KAOS card that I received from Oliver. When I received it in the mail, it brought a smile to my face and it sure brighten my day. I wanted to do the same to a few people, so I have been busy making these three cards to send off. (See my last posting for the details on the KAOS award.)
I call these mini cards, because they are smaller than my usual 6" x 6" (15cm x 15cm) cards, but they are not really minis...LOL...more like medium-size card. They are 4" x 6" (10cm x 15cm).
So these cards, I will be mailing to three of the many beautiful people that I have met in blog land: Barb (Stampelicious), Patty Jo (PJSDesigns) and Maz (Only By His Grace). There are so many lovely ladies out, but sigh...I am only making three!!!
The layout and design, cardstock, DP's and embellishments for all three cards are the same. Trying to figure them out is what usually takes me ages to do!!! No way was I going to design 3 complete different cards. Soooo.....these are all more or less the same, except for the Magnolia Tilda image. As you can see here, I've made them into easel cards.
Here are close-ups of the 3 card fronts. On this first one, I have used Travelling Tilda from the Bon Voyage Collection 2010.
Tilda with Pony Tail is sitting on the second card. She is from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011.
And the third card has Sweetie Tilda from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011 also.
And look! While I was at it, I decided to make a Thank You card for my Swedish young friend in the same style.
And this image is Lying Tilda from the Sweet Rainbow Collection 2011.
ALL these Magnolia images I have used, including the sentiment "Just sitting here thinking of you" are available from Magnolia-licious, your on-line source of anything and everything Magnolia in North America. it is also your best source of the mini-version stamps of these and many other Magnolia images. The service there is excellent!!!
