We're halfway into our current challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. The theme for this challenge is 'Celebration' (e.g. new baby, birthday, anniversary, graduation, Christmas, etc.). It's an easy theme! So I hope you can play along with us. There's one more week before the end of the challenge. Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get complete details on the challenge and don't forget to check out what my DT teammates have created for your inspirations.
I've decided to celebrate Christmas for the challenge. This is only my second Christmas card of the year.
I've created a round/circular side-step card which I've set up as an easel card.
The template/tutorial for the round/shaped side-step card you can find HERE.
Taking a closer look at the Magnolia Stamps being featured--it's one of the oldies.
- Tilda With Christmas Candles from the A Christmas Story Collection 2012
This stamp and other Magnolia Stamps are available from Magnolia-licious, Diana's on-line store where she carries a large selection of both full-size and mini Magnolia stamps.
