Merriest Moments Slimline Christmas Card

It’s Thursday and time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I can’t wait to see all of the creative goodies in this week’s Hop! We have a 5-color challenge this week and we had to pick at least 3 of the colors for our card. I used Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow and Garden Green on my card today.

I decided to create a slimline Christmas Card using the Merriest Moments Stamp Set, Merriest Frames Dies and the beautiful Boughs of Holly 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. I think the jeweled flower centers and ribbon add a fun and festive touch to this holiday card!

I started off with a card base in Cherry Cobbler and added a piece of the Boughs of Holly 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper matted to a piece of white to the card front. I stamped several of the poinsettia flowers onto Real Red cardstock using Real Red ink. I also stamped the small greenery image in Garden Green ink onto Garden Green cardstock and die cut all of the pieces.

I cut three white squares and three Mossy Meadow square mats next, and assembled the poinsettias and adhered them to two of the squares. The third square was reserved for stamping the sentiment in Mossy Meadow.

The center of the card, both vertically and horizontally, was established and a piece of Garden Green ribbon was adhered to the card front using Tear & Tape. The three matted squares were then adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A small bow in Garden Green was added to the top of the sentiment label. A Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend was used to color seven small Basic Rhinestone Jewels. Three of the colored rhinestones were added to each of the poinsettia centers and the seventh jewel was added to the center of the sentiment label.

An additional sentiment was stamped onto the inside card panel and the small greenery sprig was stamped onto the lower right and upper left of the panel and the panel was adhered to the inside of the card. The same greenery sprig was stamped onto the envelope front and a piece of coordinating designer series paper was added to the envelope flap to complete the card.
