Sometimes you got to blow your own horn!

1/1/22 Winner at QKR Stampede!

Hi friends! Well, another Hump Day has rolled around and we got more snow last night so we’re happy campers! We’re hoping for a White Christmas this year! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve been on a mini slimline kick over the last several weeks and I created this one specifically to enter into the QKR Stampede Challenge #434 – Anything Goes this time! I won this ‘Tooting Angel’ digital image and ‘Blow Your Horn’ digital sentiment from QKR Stampede a while back and decided it was time to use them! So I created this Christmas card in non-traditional colors for a good friend of ours who I know will appreciate it! What a hoot!

I cut a side-folding mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Amethyst cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers Dies. I printed the image and sentiment on CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock, cut the image with a die from the same slimline layers set and colored it with alcohol markers. I adhered the layers together and then to the card base, and added the sentiment which I cut with a stitched circle die. I added several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Amethyst Accent Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick to finish the card front.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Amethyst cardstock. I stamped the Lawn Fawn sentiment in black ink and layered the panels together and then to the inside of the card base.

And one more peek… love, love, love this image – and she made the most adorable 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
