Hey everybody! Ready, Set, Go! Get those remaining Christmas cards and projects finished… St. Nick will be here tomorrow night! Leslie here, sharing a mini slimline Christmas card (my favorite size) featuring a foliage frame cut from Stardream Metallic Fairway cardstock and a layered sentiment cut from Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock! What a gorgeous shimmery combination! And, of course, the card base is cut from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock which is a staple in my studio!
Cut Card Base and Layers
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock and an inside layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. Using dies in my stash, I die cut a foliage frame and an inside layering panel from Stardream Metallic Fairway cardstock. Similarly, I die cut the front sentiment three times from Stardream Metallic Jupiter cardstock.
I adhered the foliage frame to the front of the card base, adhered the three die cut sentiments together for a little dimension, and adhered the inside panels together. Next, I gathered the four poinsettia brads I wanted to use and clipped off the prongs (I didn’t want the bulk underneath the foliage frame).
Add Sentiments & Poinsettia Brads
I adhered the layered sentiment to the card front and adhered the brad fronts with distress collage medium. Next, I stamped the sentiment on the inside panel in red ink.
I added several tiny clear gemstones to the card front. I adhered the inside panel to the card base which completed the card.
