I enjoyed making the recent Let It Snow cards so much I thought I would try a new design. I’ve used the same three Marianne Designs dies, Anja’s Vintage decoration, Anja’s Border and Anja’s Circle, but this time I’ve created a slide out panel at the front to hide my message:

For a closer look:

And another:

The removable insert looks like this:

There is room on the back of the panel for your personal message. Don’t forget to take advantage of the 25% off Die sale over at the Magnolia-licious™ store to pick up some of these gorgeous dies.
