I’m participating in a fun 12 Days of Christmas blog challenge with my stamping friend Theresa to show off all the Christmas awesomeness in the soon retiring June-December 2021 Mini Catalog and 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.
For Day One of my 12 Days of Christmas challenge I have a fun but simple Slimline card created with the gorgeous Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper from the June-December 2021 Mini Catalog. This non-traditional color 12″ x 12″ Specialty DSP includes printed images that make it perfect for slimline cards. I added a Wonderful Snowflake pre-die cut snowflake to add just the right touch to this lovely Christmas slimline card.
Start with a Mint Macaron cs card base. Cut a Polished Pink cs panel and a Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP panel. Glue the panels to the card base. Glue a Wonderful Snowflake snowflake to the right side of the card base in the middle.
Cut a Basic White cs sentiment panel and then stamp the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink. Cut a Polished Pink cs sentiment layer panel and gently tear the bottom edge. Be sure that you leave enough cardstock to frame the sentiment.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sentiment panel to the torn edged panel and then glue the panels to the card front overlapping the snowflake. Add Opal Rounds to the card front for extra sparkle.
Don’t forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel to write your message. I added the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set to the inside with Misty Moonlight ink. I added a strip of Specialty DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through. You can mail your Slimline card in a standard number 10 business (4.13″ x 9.5″) envelope.
I hope you enjoyed my Whimsy & Wonder Slimline Christmas card. You can order the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty DSP, Poinsettia Petals stamp set, the Whimsical Trees stamp set, and the Wonderful Snowflakes in my Online Store.
