Christmas Wishes - Magnolia-licious April Mini Magnolia

Hello.

Happy Wednesday!  Each week's Wednesday post at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog is dedicated to the 'Wednesday Mini Magnolia Challenge' where the design team will be showcasing the Mini Magnolia Stamps images, along with a few Stamping Bella images thrown in every now and then.  Today it's my turn to participate.

I've made this Peek-A-Boo card to showcase some mini stamps.


The card features windows/openings where you play peek-a-boo with the images.


As you open the card, one image is replaced with another.



I've made a really short video to better demonstrate how the peek-a-boo card works.


Peek-A-Boo Card tutorial HERE.
Paper Pinecone tutorial HERE.

I've added glitter to the outer edge and window of the ornaments by outlining them with a glue pen and then dipping them in gold microfine glitter.

A closer look at the Mini Magnolia Stamps being featured.


- Mini Unwrapped Tilda from the So Jolly and Under The Mistletoe Collection 2009
- Mini Puppy Love Tilda from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013


- Mini Sparkling Tilda from the So Jolly and Under The Mistletoe Collection 2009

And the one full-size stamps I've also used because this image is just perfect for this card.
