Merry Christmas slimline

Hi everybody! Happy Saturday and Happy New Year! Today is the 1st day of the month which is always a busy blog day! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! Our first challenge of the new year launched this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #42 – Anything Christmas Goes! Our challenges are always Anything Christmas Goes, and I created a pretty slimline in my favorite color of green using stamps from Prickley Pear Stamps and an assortment of dies!

I cut my go-to size of 9″ x 3-3/4″ slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, along with a layering panel from a green plaid pattern from the Christmas Print 6×6 Cardstock Pad. Using the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Square STAX, I die cut three squares from CutCardStock Bonsai Green cardstock. I also cut three scalloped squares from CutCardStock Granny Smith cardstock using the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Mini Scallop Square STAX and an embellishing strip punched from black glitter paper using a scalloped edge punch. I stamped images from the Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Holiday Gift Tags stamp set, colored them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them. I layered the die cut squares together, adhered the stamped and colored images, and adhered them to the card front. I added the black glitter paper scalloped border across the bottom, and the final touch was adding small black gemstones to the squares (which turned into diamond shapes, lol).

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with a leftover plaid pattern strip used on the front, a strip of CutCardStock Bonsai Green cardstock and a strip of black glitter paper. I stamped the sentiment from the same Prickley Pear Stamps Christmas Holiday Gift Tags stamp set in black ink and layered the panel on the green cardstock. I had one extra stamped, colored and fussy-cut image which I adhered to the inside.

And one more peek… so loving how this turned out! This stamp set is so versatile and fun to use!

Howdy, friends! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #36 – July Anything Christmas Goes! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you. I really appreciate your support! I created a fun slimline featuring a line of trees and lots of shimmery and shiny gold bling! Who doesn’t love bling at Christmastime?!

I cut a landscape top-folding slimline card base measuring 9″ x 3-3/4″ from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with a light teal gingham paper layer and a teal cardstock layer which I adhered together. I adhered a gold glitter filmstrip frame die cut across the bottom with a flagged red cardstock strip layered behind it. I dug into my scrap bin and found some light, medium and dark teal cardstock scraps, punched ten trees and layered them in sets of two. I added gold glitter alpha stickers and holiday light brads, and popped them up on foam dimensionals. I stamped ‘Christmas’ in teal ink on a white cardstock scrap, trimmed it and flagged one end, then adhered it in the bottom right corner.

I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips of the light teal gingham, red cardstock and gold glitter paper. I stamped the sentiment in teal ink and layered the panel on teal cardstock.

And one more look… totally smitten with this blinged-out card! And teal and red is one of my favorite color combinations!
