Happiness Comes from the Heart - Magnolia-licious May Mini Magnolias


Happy Wednesday!  It's the day of the week that the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog dedicates to the 'Wednesday Mini Magnolia Challenge' where the design team showcases the Mini Magnolia Stamps images, along with a few Stamping Bella images thrown in every now and then.  It's my turn to participate in this week's Wednesday posting.

I was looking for a smaller card size to feature the Mini Magnolia Stamps on and was thinking that I would do a Diamond Fold Card.  But I came upon a picture of a Double Diamond Fold Card on the internet instead and decided to give it a try.

Here's the card I ended up with.

And yes, the card is small...or at least smaller than my usual size.  It measures about 6 inches wide from tip to tip, but only under 4 inches in height.

This card features multiple folds.

When the card is spread out, you can see all the fold lines here.

Edited (June 30, 2016):  You can find the template for this card HERE, if you're interested. 

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

- Mini Tilda With Heart from the Mini Special Moments Collection 2013

- Mini Tilda with Heart Lace from the Mini Your Are So Special Collection 2011

Mini Magnolia Stamps can be purchased from Magnolia-licious at a fabulous price of only $1.99 - $2.00 each--sweet!  Check out the large selection of mini stamps HERE.
