Magnolia-licious August challenge! (and the winner is...)

Good morning! Our challenge this month is a T Slide card and is brought to us by Mindy! Here is the tutorial link on SCS-T Slide Card. I recommend watching the video so you can see how it goes together. The cutting and score lines are a little tricky on the written tutorial.
Another thing to be careful of is where you put the focal image and the end (and the size of it). I had to take mine apart because I wanted it centered. It can't be centered because the card won't open fully unless the edge is on the score line of the dp. If you want it centered, make the focal piece about 3.5" wide.
The Pier Fence with Lifebuoy (#615) and (#122) Edwin w/ binoculars and (#413) Pelican are available for Pre Order from Bon Voyage Collection, coming soon!



You can see here that the inside says "Ahoy!"


Since I took so many pictures, I won't prattle on today! We hope you will join us during the month of August and try this challenge. One lucky participant will will your choice of TWO Magnolia images from Magnolia-licious!

So great to see this month's challenge using my technique! We had to scale down the written tutorial for space. I originally wrote the tutorial back in May and posted it on my blog. My blog tutorial is much more detailed and written "so a caveman can do it". If you check out my blog tutorial, you'll find it so much easier to follow!

Hope this helps! Feel free to provide the direct link to the tutorial on my blog. I also have instructions for the A2 size and triple t-slide at my blog as well. Thanks!
