Winter Wonderland - Crealies GDT Card


I've got another card to show you that I made for Crealies.  This is my second Guest DT card and I've made a front panel side step card.  

The centre panel shape was created using Crealies cutting templates In Shape No. 1.  I have actually used flower dies to make the snowflakes, Crealies Creative Flowers Dies No. 18.  Those gorgeous borders were made using Crealies Creative Border No. 17.  Crealis products are available from Annelies' webstore HERE.

I bought this Magnolia stamp after the last Christmas season was already over, so I haven't had a chance to use it until now.  This adorable image is called Winter Skates Tilda, a special stamp from Magnolia Sweden--I don't think she is part of any of their stamp collections.  

The stamp is available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious.  Check out her vast collection of full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  Diana gives excellent service, discounts and store credit for every purchase.  

Here's a picture of the inside of my card.  Hmmm...the colour is a bit off here--it's not really that vivid in real life...LOL. 

I've used another Tilda image here and this time it is a mini stamp.  This is Mini Winter Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011.

Challenges I am entering with this card:
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #234 - Christmas in September
