Merry Christmas mini slimline

Hi friends! Happy Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! It’s finally starting to warm up here… for a minute there we thought Mother Nature was really ticked off because we were getting snow while our family and friends in Florida were enjoying the beach! What’s wrong with that picture?! Our very first challenge is live this morning over at Christmas BINGO Challenges and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #1 – Anything Goes with Featured Christmas BINGO Card! Here’s a short run-down of how this new challenge works: There will be a BINGO Card featured in each challenge and our designers and participants will need to use at least three items in any column under the B, I, N, G or O on a Christmas project. This is not your typical BINGO card where you go up/down, left/right and diagonally… you can only go up and down using the columns. There is a free space in each column that you are welcome to use if you want. You cannot mix and match columns – you can only use one letter. We really hope you’ll check it out and come play with us! I went with column G and made a mini slimline card with red, stitching and a doily.

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from CutCardStock Basis Natural along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Red. Using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Scalloped Edge Dies, I die cut a panel from a pretty patterned paper from the Carta Bella Christmas Collection Kit. Then, using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Tri-Frame Dies, I die cut a frame from another Carta Bella paper. I used ‘merry Christmas’ sentiment stickers from the Carta Bella kit. I cut a small Stampin’ Up doily roughly in half and adhered the smaller piece to the bottom left corner and adhered a bow fashioned from a piece of hemp crafting cord. The final touch was adding some small dots of Glossy Accents to the berries on the patterned paper.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis Natural cardstock and embellished it with leftover strips of patterned paper and red cardstock used on the front. I stamped a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions In & Out Christmas stamp set in Catherine Pooler Black Jack ink.

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. Leslie, this is a beautiful card! I’ve never heard of a mini slimline before, but I love the idea! I’ll have to keep those measurements in mind. I love all the little elements involved in your card too. And the inside is such an inspiration. I often will put a stamp or strip of paper, but yours is really nice. It’s nice to be working on your team! :)
