I couldn’t resist making another fun Christmas card for this week’s Global Design Project sketch challenge. The Slim card (Slimline) design works perfectly with the Trimming the Town Designer Series paper. I die cut out a cute house and paired it with the sentiments from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set to create my card.
Start with an Old Olive cs card base. Cut a Real Red cs panel and a Trimming the Town DSP panel. Glue the two together and then wrap them with a piece of Real Red Sheer ribbon using Stampin’ Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panels. Glue the wrapped panels to the card base. Add Wink of Stella to the snow on the mountains for sparkle.
Die cut a Whisper White cs oval and an Old Olive cs scalloped oval with the Layering Ovals Dies. Glue the ovals together and then glue them to the left side of the card front overlapping the ribbon.
Die cut out a house and trees from the Trimming the Town DSP with the Home Together Dies. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the house to the center of the Whisper White cs oval. Add Wink of Stella to the windows on the house for sparkle.
Cut a Whisper White cs sentiment banner. Stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red ink on the left side of the banner. Use your paper snips to flag the right end of the banner. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sentiment banner to the card front to the right of the ovals overlapping the wrapped ribbon. Add the die cut trees with glue dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals around the ovals. Tie a small bow with the Real Red Sheer ribbon and use glue dots to attach it above the sentiment banner.
Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside panel to write your message. I stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Real Red ink and added a strip of Trimming the Town DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
