Simple Christmas Cards.

Hello friends out in blogging land! The other day I got my mini Magnolia's from Magnolia-licious, soon as I seen them I visioned a simple card using only one other color. I haven't made such a simple card in a long time. I wanted to show you all how you can make simple Christmas cards using these adorable Mini Magnolia stamps. They are so tiny and super cute! They really don't take long to color. These cards took me about 40 min each to make. I think the layout is really easy and perfect if you are making a lot of cards. I just had to mask those little trees behind the Snowman. I just love masking and it honestly wasn't as bad as I thought cutting out that little image. Both of these images are on 2x2 inch white xpress it card stock, to give you an idea how small the images really are.

Don't forget Magnolia is doing a give a way all month long on the new Magnolia Blog. All you have to do is comment on the Design Team Member's blog. Each day is a new Designer. My day is December 15th!

Have a wonderful day!
