This card took forever to do because of the zillions of pictures I had to take for the tutorial which I have posted below this posting, or you can find it HERE.
I made this a Christmas peek-a-boo card because I have to seriously start adding to my Christmas card collection. The card count is currently very very low...LOL.
The first image you see here is of Little Tilda from Magnolia's Little Christmas Collection 2012. I think this is sneak peek of a larger collection coming out later on--ooh, I can't wait! Am so looking forward to it.
Colouring of the image for this card were done with my markers--Letraset Promarkers and Trias, Shin-Han Touch markers. I've added glitters to the wings.
As you open the card...
the first image is replaced by another adorable image of Dancing With Stars Tilda--from the same Magnolia's Little Christmas Collection 2012.
This collection is so popular that it is already out of stock at Magnolia-licious on-line store. However, Diana has an excellent selection of other full-size as well as mini-size Magnolia stamps. Check out also her selections of dies from Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs.
