We're launching a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog. This is our last one for the year as we're taking a break during December and will be back in the new year. This challenge will ran for over a month until the eve of our first 2016 challenge, so lots of time for you to get your entries in. The theme for this challenge is 'Fancy Folds.' Visit the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get complete details on the challenge, the prizes and how you can join in the fun. Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.
I've created a double-tag card. I love this card style--I should use it more often.
As you can see, the card has two pockets...and there's a tag/insert in each pocket.
If you're interested in making a double-tag card, Marianne has posted a tutorial for it and you can find it on her blog, HERE.
I'm featuring a couple of stamps from the newly-released Magnolia Stamps collection:
- Edwin with Christmas Lantern from the A Lovely Christmas Collection 2015
- Lace Hood Tilda from the A Lovely Christmas Collection 2015
Magnolia Stamps 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. And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, e-mail Diana and I'm sure she'll be happy to bring it in for you.
Check out also the stamps from Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studios, Saturated Canary and Candibeans and Crafter's Companion, along with cutting dies from various companies including Memory Box, PoppyStamps, Magnolia Doohickey, Wild Rose Studio.
Prices are discounted, you get excellent customer service and you also get to earn 2% credit to be applied to future purchases.
