Merry Christmas Slimline

Howdy peeps! We’ve busted into August and my sister’s birthday is in five days, so that means Christmas will literally be here in no time. This happens every year, lol! I have an awesome Tape Runner DT inspiration project to share with you today. I created a slimline card featuring a string of sparkling bulbs, and of course, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. This is the first time I’ve used the STAMPlorations Layered Lights stamp set and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it! I love the whimsical fill-ins on all the layered sets!

As mentioned above, all panels were adhered with Tape Runner. I cut a 3-3/4″ x 9″ slimline card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from CutCardStock Pop Tone Tangy Orange cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock. Using an acrylic stamp block, I stamped the lights and cord in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink on the white layering panel. Next, I stamped the bulb fill-ins with Ranger rustic wilderness, prize ribbon, crackling campfire, villainous potion and kitsch flamingo distress inks. I stamped over each one a second time with Versamark Dazzle and applied Ranger Bridal Tinsel Embossing Powder along with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder to seal the tinsel. I stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment in black ink with the MISTI, adhered the panel to the orange panel and then to the card base, and added one small Darice iridescent gemstone to each bulb which completed the card front.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Pop Tone Tangy Orange cardstock. I added a STAMPlorations Comfort & Joy Clear Sticker and layered the panel on orange cardstock.

And one more peek… such a FUN card! I love this stamp set and will be using it again and again, I’m sure. And, as I always say, it’s awesome having a great adhesive to hold everything together!

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
