Happy Valentine's Day 3-Step Card - Magnolia-licious 'Anything Goes'


It's Team B's turn to post our DT cards/projects for our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge.  We're midway into our 'Anything Goes' challenge.  Hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge to get the details on the challenge and how you can join in the fun.  Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards/projects that my DT teammates have created to inspire you.

This is what I've created for the challenge.

And there's a pop-up surprise inside the card--I've made this into a 3-step card.

I made a similar card last year.  I think the 3 steps are just perfect to spell out the I♥U, don't you?  And you know, Valentine's Day is only 10 days away!

I'm featuring two adorable images from Magnolia's latest collection:

- For You Tilda from the Lost and Found Collection 2014

- Write A Message Tilda from the Lost and Found Collection 2014

The stamps for these two cuties are available from Magnolia-licious, where Diana carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, ask Diana if she can bring it in for you.  Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Penny Black and CandibeansMagnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and what's more, you get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.  Sweet!
