Here's another surprise pop-up card. I like the first one I made a couple of weeks ago, so I made another.
This adorable image I've coloured with my markers is from last year's Magnolia's A Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010 and she is called Jolly Tilda.
I get my Magnolia stamps from Diana's on-line store Magnolia-licious. Diana has a fabulous selection of anything and everything Magnolia (stamps--regular size and mini version, doohickey cutting dies, magazines ...) and she gives excellent service, along with discounts and store credits. Check out the Memory Box, Maryanne Designs and Cheery Lynn dies too!
With this type of surprise pop-up card, there's a tab at the back that you are suppose to pull out. This will reveal a surprise message/sentiment and at the same time, pop up your image.
HERE's a link to an excellent tutorial made by Beate Johns for Splitcoast Stampers.)
I have a second surprise message/sentiment that I've put on the pull-out tab. I've another Tilda cutie here called Holding Tilda--this one is from this year's Magnolia Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011--but this one is actually the mini version.

That's it for now. Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I appreciate the visit. Hmm...I'm still not quite finished with my Christmas-card making. Still a few more cards to make for people at work, so at least I don't have to mail them but can hand them over in person...LOL..--thankful for any little blessing. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
