Wonderful Christmas Slimline


Card size:  4 X 9

Make a shaped card using the outer die of the Slim Gateway (see video: How to Create Decorative Shaped Cards for All Occasions - YouTube)  , also cut another front from blue decorative paper then glue it to the card base matching edges.

Cut the decorative part of the Slim Gateway from white and from gold, glue together off-set then fold back opening in the center, both sides.

Stamp the sentiment on white using Vermillion, die cut then pop up on a piece of white cut in a rectangle. Cut a gold mat as well.  Glue the sentiment to the center under open gate.

Stamp birds and holly using black then color, die cut. Add foam to the backs then adhere to card top and bottom.

Stamp poinsettias using Vermillion, sponge with Carnation, die cut then sponge edges with Vermillion, form. Glue 2 together staggering petals then insert gold stamen.  Glitter flowers then adhere to card with holly.

Thanks for visiting!


Luke 2:6-12

And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.[c]

The Shepherds and the Angels

And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

When doing Christmas cards I always think of the birth of Christ, He is the reason we celebrate!
