Hello crafty readers! This is Design Team member Crystal Komara here with you today.  I know that we have only 12 days left until Christmas, so I hope that your holiday cards are in the mail by now, or at least on the kitchen counter ready to go, stat!  But, I’m here to offer a little more Christmas card inspiration should you still need to create a few last minute cards. . .

This slimline card measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2.”  Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage.

Card details: 

The base of this card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock.  I used a slimline die cut from red cardstock in order to create the frame.  Behind the frame I placed a 7 1/2″ x 3″ piece of black and white music patterned paper.  I printed the two envelopes from the Extraordinary digital stamp set.  I colored the envelopes with Copic markers in reds and greens.  I fussy cut the envelopes and adhered them to each corner of the card using 3M foam adhesive.  I die cut the word “Merry” from red glitter paper and created my own shadow die from vellum cardstock.  I printed the “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” sentiment from the Love Santa digital stamp set in green ink on white cardstock.  I trimmed the sentiment down to a small size and adhered it above and below the word “Merry.”  Lastly, I added a coat of clear Wink of Stella to the flowers in the envelopes for added sparkle.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!  For more inspiration, you can follow me on my websiteInstagramFacebook and on my YouTube channel.

XO, Crystal
