Ho Ho Ho

11/30/20 Special Mention Winner at Classic Design Challenge!

Good Sunday morning to you all! I’m back this morning to share a Christmas slimline card that I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps “Wish List” themed Spotlight article in the Rubber Stamp Madness Holidays 2020 Issue! This card features a little scene I created with the Santa Koala and Mrs Claus clear stamp set! So stinkin’ cute! My copy of the Holiday Edition is on it’s way and I will update this post when I receive it. What a thrill! ;)

UPDATE: Holiday Edition received in the mail today! Sorry about the glare on the cover, though. Love the ‘Spotlight’ article on Prickley Pear Stamps! Woo-hoo!

I created my go-to size slimline card base of 9″ x 3-3/4″ from red cardstock and layered on some Christmas plaid. I stamped all the images in black ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored them with alcohol markers. I created this card prior to the dies being available so I fussy cut all the images and created the scene. I used my snow marker to accent their outfits which gave the images nice texture. Since the Prickley Pear Stamps article theme was “Wish List” I made sure to pop up the wish list on foam pads. I layered the focal panel on gold foil cardstock and adhered it to the card base. I stamped, layered and trimmed the sentiment, and added a few glittered Gumdrops in the upper right corner.

I embellished the inside panel with plaid paper and a strip of gold foil cardstock, added a layered sentiment and fussy-cut holly, and layered the panel on the gold foil cardstock.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out and so proud it was published in Rubber Stamp Madness magazine! ;)
