Note Card set...

I'm still busy working on some Christmas projects and have this small post for you today. These little note cards didn't take me very long to make! Using the Magnolia Mini's Christmas 2010 images I made the whole set in just a few hours and that included drying time for the stickles or sparkly fluff to dry!

I love these little darlings! They are so addictive and such fun to work with. They color up so quickly and the results are always appealing.

So here is the entire set...

Here is each little card individually...

Christmas Tilda #3010:

Star Tilda #3059:

Santa Bending Over #170:

Tilda with Christmas Letters #3061:

The top half of each card was run through my Cuttlebug with the Snowflake Embossing folder. I then took my Brilliance Moonlight White ink pad and wiped it over the top to give the snow flakes some distinction. I used SU notecards in Soft Sky - a retired "In Color" and Taken With Teal for the scalloped oval mat. I'm sorry, I didn't keep track of all the colors I used on the images but there were quite a few!
The images were adhered to the card fronts with dimensionals. That's it, quick and easy!

Thanks for coming by my blog to see my latest creation...Merry Christmas!

Blessings and hugs,
