Let It Snow 4-Step Card - Magnolia-licious 'Winter Theme or Anything Goes'


We're midway into our 'Winter Theme or Anything Goes' challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The design team has more cards to inspire you to play along with us.  Don't forget to visit the challenge blog, HERE, to see what my teammates have created and to get complete details on the challenge.

For my DT card, I've created a 4-step card.  This is the card front.

The 4-step feature is inside the card.
(If you're interested in the template for this 4-step card, you can find it HERE.)

The letters for the 'let it SNOW' were cut out by hand.  I didn't have the appropriate dies, so I found a font that I like on the internet, printed out the enlarged letters and then cut them out with my small scissor.  There weren't that many letters to cut out so I didn't mind doing it.

I hope you'll play along with our challenge.  There's a prize of a $20 Gift Certificate from Magnolia-licious.

A closer look at the two Magnolia Stamps images being featured.

- Tilda With Little Snowy from the A Lovely Christmas Collection 2015

- Cozy Christmas Tilda from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013 with a litlle alteration made--I've changed the apple Tilda's holding into a snowball.
