Merry Christmas Diamond-Fold Card

Hello.

I just wanted to add another card to this year's growing-way-to-slow Christmas card collection, so I've made a diamond-fold card which is being put on display here...


or you can display it this way...


I consider this a mini card because when it's folded up, it's a 4-inch square card.


If you're interested in making this type of card, you can find the template HERE.

And as more often than not, the colouring of the image was done with my Letraset markers--Promarkers and Pantone Trias.

Here's a close-up of the cute Tilda being featured...


- Something For You Tilda from the Sweet Christmas Dreams Collection 2011

Magnolia stamps are available at Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she 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 StampsWild Rose Studios and Candibeans.
Magnolia-licious also carries cutting dies from various companies including Memory BoxPoppyStampsMagnolia Doohickey. and other crafting tools such as Scor-tapes, Prima Chalk Edgers, flowers, etc.  Have a look!
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!
