Hey everybody! I hope you had a great week and you’re winding down this weekend! Leslie here sharing a mini slimline Christmas card in a traditional red and green color combo. This card features Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock which I paired with our Basis Red, Basis Green and CCS Gold Glitter cardstock. Lots of favorites going on here – cardstock, mini slimline size and holiday die set!

Cut Card Base and Layering Panels

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ card base along with front and inside layering panels from Neenah Classic Crest Baronial Ivory cardstock. Next, I cut front and inside layering panels from Basis Red. I also cut front and inside embellishing strips from Basis Green and CCS Gold Glitter cardstock.

Create Focal Elements

The sketch poinsettias were die cut from Basis Red, Basis Green and CCS Gold Glitter cardstock, and then assembled. Note: The photo shows one poinsettia but I actually used three on the card front.

Adhere Layers

I adhered the embellishing strips to the front and inside ivory panels, and then adhered them to the red cardstock panels.

Add Sentiments, Assemble and Complete Card

I adhered the three poinsettias and a foiled sentiment strip to the card front. Next, the inside sentiment was stamped in red ink, and the front and inside panels were adhered to the card base. The final step was adding several red gemstones.

I’m definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I’m addicted to stamping. I love making cards, ATCs, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, paper purses and mini albums), mixed media projects, art journaling, altering stuff and occasional beading.
