Play & Make Good Cheer

Hi friends! Happy Thursday – I hope you’re having a great week! Seems we stay pretty busy but I always find time to craft in my happy place – that’s what keeps me sane, lol! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I have a super adorable mini slimline Christmas card to share this morning that I created for The Outlawz December Freebie/Progressive Challenge using the ‘Angel’ digital image gifted to us by the sponsor this month, MMedel Illustrations. If you haven’t joined The Outlawz Challenges yet, you ought to – there are always challenges going on and prizes to be won! And I know I’ve mentioned before that the perk for regularly participating in the Freebie/Progressive Challenge is a free digital image to create with! I am a clear/rubber stamp girl and don’t use many digis anymore but I have to admit that I enjoy participating in this challenge each month.

I printed the digital image on Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and colored it with alcohol markers. I’ve been on another mini slimline ‘kick’ and cut this mini slim card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers Dies. I then cut the colored image with a slightly smaller mini slim die in the same set and adhered them together and then to the card base. I stamped the sentiment in black ink from the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Trees 2 stamp set and cut it with a stitched rectangle die. I trimmed off the top portion of the die cut and adhered it to the card front, lining up the top edge with the edge of the red layering panel. I added several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Ruby Radiance Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick to complete the front.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers Dies, stamped the Lawn Fawn sentiment in black ink, and layered the panel on a slightly larger red die cut layering panel.

And one more peek… this is such an adorable image that made the cutest Christmas card!

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
