Fun in the Sun - Magnolia-licious 'Sun, Sea and Sand'


Today being the second Tuesday of the month, it's time to start a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The new theme is 'Sun, Sea and Sand.'   To get complete details of the challenge and how you can join in the fun, visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog site.  Don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.

Here's what I've created as my DT card for the challenge--a tri-shutter card.

I haven't made one of these for a while--I love fancy-fold cards.  You can find the template for this Tri-Shutter Card HERE, if you're interested.

The scroll design corners were diecut and the sandcastle borders, starfish and crab were punched out using punches.  Other than those, the rest of the embellishments were cut out by hand.

When laid-out flat, the card measures 6" x 12", but it folds to 6" x 4" for easy mailing.

Here are close-ups of the adorable Magnolia Stamps images...(list of marker colours listed below)
