Nothing but the naked truth...


I finally have another card to show you.  I got side-tracked with another project, but finally finished this one.  This is a four-step card.

I saw the vertical step card template at Stempeleinmaleins, HERE, which is for a five-step card. It gave me the idea to make a four-step card to spell out the word LOVE.  I had seen this type of card before but don't remember on which site and also it was for a three-step card.  Anyway, I reworked the template and came up with this card.

Colouring of the images were done with Letraset Promarker and Pantone Tria markers.

The stamps that I have used are both from the latest Magnolia stamp collection With Love Collection 2013.  For the card front, I have Tilda with Love Music.

And for inside the card, I have this cute image of Tilda Hiding Heart.

Both these stamps and other Magnolia stamps--full size and minis--are available from Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licious. If you don't see the one you are looking for in the store, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
Have a look also at the selections of cutting dies from Magnolia, Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Marianne Design, Cheery Lynn Designs and Joy! Crafts. Diana offers discounted prices, gives excellent service and you get to earn 2% in-store credit with every purchase!
