Hi friends! We’ve reached another Hump Day and the weeks are just buzzing by! I’ve popped in this morning with one final card sample created for Prickley Pear Stamps, and this one catches me completely up! For now, lol! I’m working behind the scenes on more samples which I’ll be sharing later. ;) This Merry Christmas mini slimline features one of the curvy stamps from the Scalloped Borders Fall stamp set that I used a repetitive fashion, leaving a slight break in the stamping for the sentiment.
I cut a mini slimline card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I stamped the bow and mistletoe from the Scalloped Borders Fall stamp set five times down the length of the white cardstock panel and colored the images with alcohol markers with Glossy Accents added to the berries. I stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) in Catherine Pooler Spruce ink and layered the panels together and then to the card base.
I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock, again using the using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set, and embellished it with a single strip of CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Holiday Gift Tags stamp set in Catherine Pooler Spruce ink and layered the panel on the Metallic Jupiter cardstock.
And one more peek… this was a fun card to create. Repetitive stamping is challenging but yields a cool effect. I’m such a rebel… I never measure anything – I just eyeball it – and I think this turned out pretty well!
