Slim and Festive.

 Hello everyone: As with every post, I hope and pray you and your families are doing well in these very difficult times, please take care of yourselves and each other and wear your masks.


The SHOPPING OUR STASH new challenge is to make a Slim Card, mine is 3"x8.5"

I die-cut watercolor paper and stamped the ornament from a retired SU set called "Delightful Decorations" (2009 Holiday Mini) with Versamark ink and gold heat emboss it. The little Chickadee is from a Power Poppy set called "Tweet Tidings" (2017 retired) and the yummy candy canes are from a retired Flourishes set called "Sweets of the Season" (2010)

I colored the images with Sakura Koi watercolor markers.

The enamel dots are from Gina Marie Designs.


This is the INSIDE of the card.

The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Hand-penned Holidays" (2011-2012 Holiday mini), the ornament is from a 2012 Penny Black set called "A Bright Tomorrow".

I hope you come and join my teammates and me at the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.

Thank you for stopping by.

Stay healthy, safe and please wear your masks.

Oh, my goodness, how beautiful this is! I'm loving all the ideas for slimline cards, and this one is top of the line. The flourishes behind the circles are a super nice touch, and the combo of different stamps is very well chosen. So pretty, Maria!
