Merry Christmas slimline

Howdy, friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #36 – July Anything Christmas Goes! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a fun slimline featuring a line of trees and lots of shimmery and shiny gold bling! Who doesn’t love bling at Christmastime?!

I cut a landscape top-folding slimline card base measuring 9″ x 3-3/4″ from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a light teal gingham paper layer and a teal cardstock layer which I adhered together. I adhered a gold glitter filmstrip frame die cut across the bottom with a flagged red cardstock strip layered behind it. I dug into my scrap bin and found some light, medium and dark teal cardstock scraps, punched ten trees and layered them in sets of two. I added gold glitter alpha stickers and holiday light brads, and popped them up on foam dimensionals. I stamped ‘Christmas’ in teal ink on a white cardstock scrap, trimmed it and flagged one end, then adhered it in the bottom right corner.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of the light teal gingham, red cardstock and gold glitter paper. I stamped the sentiment in teal ink and layered the panel on teal cardstock.

And one more look… totally smitten with this blinged-out card! And teal and red is one of my favorite color combinations!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I just wish I could get into Christmas this early….I’d have my 40+ cards finished by the first of December and so I could actually enjoy the dickens out of the holiday season!!!!
