Spreading Winter Cheer
Posted on December 16 2020
Hi there! Annie here, and today I'm sharing another fun holiday slimline card featuring several of the new stamp and die sets from the Christmas Mini Collection and the Fall Winter 2020 Collection. I can't resist gingerbread men, and the adorable images in the Gingerbread Kisses stamp set inspired me to create a sweet card where they're pitching in to help with holiday decorations for the forest animals.
I started by cutting a piece of white cardstock with the largest die from the Slimline Corner Scallop Die Set. Then I lightly blended Marina Madness Hybrid Ink over the top half of the panel and Pink Tutu Hybrid Ink over the bottom half of the panel with a blending brush before splattering it with white paint to look like snow. To create the snowy hill, I trimmed white shimmer cardstock to 8.25" wide and die cut the top edge with the Over The Hills Die twice across the length of the panel.
I stamped the tree house from the Country House stamp set in Raven Hybrid Ink and colored it with alcohol markers before cutting it out with the coordinating dies. After adhering it to the card front with foam tape, I stuck a cute little fox from the Snow Much Fun stamp set in the doorway.
I tried to fit as many of the little characters from the Gingerbread Kisses stamp set in my scene as possible (they were all stamped in Raven Hybrid Ink, colored with alcohol markers, and cut out with the coordinating dies). To give them a home in the neighborhood too, I used one of the cute houses in the 34th Street stamp set and colored it to look like a gingerbread house.
I finished the card off by adding a bunch of images from the Country Corner Accessories stamp set to decorate the scene for Christmas. (I love how the little gingerbread men are helping the cardinal get to the birdhouse!) For my sentiment, I added a tiny greeting from the Elegant Holiday Wishes stamp set to the Christmas sign in front.
I hope you enjoyed this fun slimline Christmas card and thanks so much for stopping by today!
