Woo-hoo...finally! I have finished a Christmas card. This is my first one for the year!!! Yikes, I am sooo... behind schedule--I'm ashamed of myself.
I've used my markers to colour the images for this card. This cutie pie is called Tilda With Snow Heart from Magnolia's Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011.
This is another swing card that I have made with a shaped swing/centre panel. I have used the Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven here.
The first swing card with a shaped swing/centre panel I made was a couple of postings ago, or HERE. For that one I used a different shaped die. This card is actually the result of a tutorial I am working on, as a couple of people have asked me to do one--I am happy to do it. The tute is on cutting the shape using your die-cutting machine--not by hand. I am still working on writing the step-by-step instructions and still have the cropping of the pictures to do. Come back if you are interested later on--most likely tomorrow...LOL.
Edited: I've finished my tutorial now. To see it, click HERE.
This adorable gal is called Winter Tilda from the same Magnolia collection as the one above is from.
