Baby, It's Cold Outside! - Magnolia-licious 'Anything Goes'


We're in our last challenge for the year 2014 at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  It's an 'Anything Goes' challenge and you have plenty of time to join us as we're leaving this open until the new year.

This is what I came up with.  It is a gate-fold card, a window card, a frame card and also a shaker card...yikes, all in one.

The card front shows the window and gate-fold feature of the card.

This middle section inside the card shows the frame and shaker features.  For the snow on the ground, I used white micro-beads that I've placed inside the frame and enclosed them with a piece of acetate sheet.

This angle shot shows the 3-dimensional look of the winter scene.

Close-ups of the Magnolia images I am featuring:

I usually don't comment on cards of people I don't know but this card is so fabulous that I just had to tell you. You have so much texture and dimension and so many fabulous details. It must have taken hours to do this card. I love the little girl peeking out of the window.
