A Merry Christmas easel card


Just a quick post here to show you another Christmas card that I just finished--and by tomorrow it will already be on its way in the mail.  LOL...I am making these xmas cards and sending them as fast as I can.

And yes, it's another easel card...

The stamped image from Magnolia that I am featuring is of Tilda with Saffron Buns.  She is from A Christmas Story Collection 2012.

I have coloured Tilda with markers--my collection of Promarkers and Pantone Trias from Letraset. 
The stamp for this image is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  Diana also has a vast selection of other Magnolia images, both full-size and minis.  Check out her selection of dies

The stamp for this adorable image is available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store.  Diana also has a vast selection of other Magnolia images, both full-size and minis.  If you don't see the stamp that you want there, just ask Diana and maybe she can bring it in for you.
Check out also the variety of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design and Cheery Lynn Designs that are available there.
