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:

- It's Cold Outside Tilda from the Waiting For Christmas Collection 2014
