Merry Christmas Mini Slimline

Hey everybody! A very Happy Saturday to you – another week has come and gone! My sister’s 70th birthday is in two days, and for years now, I’ve said that once her birthday comes and goes, Christmas will be here in no time! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock that I paired with our Basis Red and Basis Green cardstock along with our Gold Glitter cardstock. What a gorgeous traditional Christmas color combo in a mini slimline size which is one of my favorites!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock, along with layering panels from Basis Red and Baronial Ivory cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set, and embellishing strips from Gold Glitter and Basis Green cardstock. I cut the poinsettia layers from Basis Red, Basis Green and Gold Glitter cardstock. I assembled the panels and adhered them to the card base, and then adhered the poinsettias. I created a foiled sentiment strip with a Baronial Ivory cardstock scrap and my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Spellbinders Glimmer Gold Foil, and Spellbinders Glimmer Holiday Sentiments Series 2 Hot Foil Plate & Die Set. I flagged the ends with an EK Success 3/4″ square punch and adhered it to the card front with a Darice double-sided adhesive foam strip. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet red gemstones.

I cut the inside panels from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory and Basis Red cardstock using the Waffle Flower Mini Slimline Layers die set. I embellished the ivory panel with strips cut from Gold Glitter and Basis Green cardstock, stamped the sentiment from the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set in Catherine Pooler Rockin’ Red ink, and adhered the panel to the red cardstock layer.

And one more peek… I really love a Christmas card in traditional red and green… as much as I love Christmas cards in non-traditional colors! And I have to say that this die set is one of my favorites!

Merry Christmas mini slimline

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!
