I was thinking of that Christmas song when I was making this card...LOL. This is my DT card for the November inspiration challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.
The card was inspired by the picture below that Pat has chosen for the inspiration challenge. Oh, it's such a gorgeous picture. It should put you into a Christmas-cardmaking mood, so come and join us in our challenge!
My card is a shadow box card. Here are a couple of shots from different angles.
Two Magnolia beauties from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011. that I have used for my card:
This one is called Holly Tilda
and this second one is of Glittering Tilda.
Both stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store, a fabulous source of everything Magnolia (stamps--full-size and mini version, doohickey die cuts)and excellent services along with discounts and store credits. Check it out HERE!
I have taken a picture of the card from above to show you the 'box' feature of this shadow box card.
And the sides can be folded in an accordion way so that you can reduce it to a flatter card that measures 6'' x 6" and will fit into your envelope.
