We have something really awesome for you today over at Freshly Made Sketches!!! It is a sketch…but not. The fun and fabulous Linda Callahan has challenged us to make slimline cards! I’m so glad she did!
I had not yet made one of these so nothing like a kick start to get me going. I opted to go with one of my favorite Christmas sets from last year, Classic Christmas by Neat & Tangled. I used its background pairing Holiday Wishes to stamp on some Desert Storm paper.
I then colored the poinsettias and foliage images using my Copic markers. Something about these flowers really make me happy every time I color them. Layering them up adds a little more balance on this wide card, I think.
I added a few Ladybug Spots Confetti Mix to finish the card and then starting thinking about the envelope. My finished card is 8-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ so it needed a unique envelope. I took a piece of coordinating green card stock and just created a quick one. A simple style with flaps was quick to make and is the perfect way to mail this special card. A standard business size would work just fine too!
I hope you will enjoy the beautiful creations by the team and that you will come over and join us! Thanks so much for stopping in today! I’ll be back tomorrow with a project for SugarPea Designs.
