Be Merry Mini Slimline Card

December 4, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Do you like Gnomes because Joset Designs new Gnomes dies are so adorable. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7″ x 6″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish to 3 1/2″ x 6″. Apply ink using a Blender Brush. I used a Teal Blue color and started light in the center working out to the darkest shade at the edges. I sprinkled water as the ink reacts to water creating a snow effect. Diecut Dotted Background using the panel created. Even though this die is for a regular slimline size I used it to create a background for a mini slimline. Adhere to card front using Kid’s Choice Glue.

Step 3 – Diecut Gnomes in various colors of cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Stamp Classic Christmas Sentiment using versamark on the female Gnome dress. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder, remove the excess and heat set it with a Heat Tool. Adhere the Gnomes to card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 – Diecut Sleigh (layers for the tree) using Green Cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice. Diecut Snow Globe (bow) using Red Cardstock and adhere to the top of the tree using Kid’s Choice Glue. Optional – Apply Distress Grit-Paste to add some sparkle and texture to the tree. Let dry. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Santa’s Sleigh (presents) in various colors of Cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Here’s a sneak peak for my next blog post using the Winter Scenery Dies.

Full-on sparkly Christmas cards

December 1, 2021

Hello everyone! It´s Sanna here again with my December card tutorial. I find that sparkly cards during the holiday season are the best choice – always. Therefore I have created a set of six card with the same basic idea today, just modifying the technique from one set to another just a little bit.

For the first card I used the Classic Christmas Special Kit and started with the background die. I applied Sea Glass and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the background and then moved on to the creating the baubles.

On the baubles I used Violet, Diva and and Bright Grape Silk Microfine Glitter in combination with Yellow. I finished the baubles with Pewter bits. After finishing the baubles I added a stamped sentiment to the card using the stamp set that comes with the Classic Christmas Special Kit. For additinal decor and texture I added some Craft Drops to the baubles.

For my second card set I used the same idea, but applied all the glitter layers directly to a sheet of Clear Double Sided Adhesive and started with Spring Peridot tone for the background. Then I applied Bright Cranberry, Peony Pink, Copper Rose and Cool Diamond tones to the baubles one after another. First doing the red layers and then adding the white tone. I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment to the card and finished everything with Craft Drops again.

While I was at it, I did a blue-red-white-silver-toned card too. It´s all the same steps, just different glitter tones.

For my last set of three cards I used the same basic idea, but on a smaller piece of paper only creating one bauble per card. I changed the glitter tones on each card to create variation and die cut the bauble with the Dotted Scalloped Circle die. These are more clean and simple in style and much faster to finish, so they are easy to do in series. The sentiment is directly stamped onto the card base with black ink.

Here are a few more in single bauble ones in various colours. I also added plenty of Craft Drops to each of these cards to bring some contrast to them and to make the images pop even more.

To give you a better idea on how I made these cards, I´ve recorded a quite a long video. Hope you get inspired and play some with Silk Microfine Glitter and the Classic Christmas Special Kit. They truly are a perfect match!

As this will be my very last guest design team post, I would like to thank Els, Joset and the whole team for having me! It´s been truly a pleasure being part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs family for so many years. I´ve enjoyed every bit of it and will continue using their products in the future too. I hope to have inspired you all throught the years. If you want to see what I´ll be upto in the future, you can follow my blog and YouTube channel.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and lovely Holiday Season and thanks for a great time!!
xxx, Sanna

Easy slimline Christmas card in rainbow colors

November 3, 2021

Hello everyone and happy November! It´s Sanna here again with another card tutorial share. This time I´ve got something fun to share: a clean and simple card that originated from last months card project´s leftover pieces. This is a fun way to use up paper strips and create cool looking cards. Hope you like the idea!

Here is how I created this card:

Step 1: I had some colored paper strip (see my October card tutorial share) leftovers from the previous cards, so I took the Classic Christmas Special Kit snowflake die and arranged the snowflakes on a slimline card sized piece of white cardstock and die cut them with my die cutting machine.
Step 2: I placed the die cut snowflakes aside and adhered the colored paper strips behind the negative snowflake areas to create the striped-snowflake-look.
Step 3: Next I took some pearlescent blue watercolor and added random color splatters onto the white area of the background for additional detail. You could also use regular watercolors here or add ink spray splatters, for example. Whatever you have available.
Step 4: Next arrange the die cut snowflake pieces into the center of the card in a row and adhere them on place.
Step 5: Take a kraft cardstock piece and stamp a Christmas sentiment – stamp comes with the kit – and heat emboss it with white embossing ink. Adhere on place with 3D foam for additional dimension.

This is such a fun way to make a cheerful card. By the way, you could also replace the inked paper strips with leftover patterned papers. That would also create a fun look! For additional information, I´ve recorded a short video to give you a better idea of the steps. Hope you enjoy it!

I don´t know about you, but I just love playing with this Classic Christmas Special Kit so much! See you again next month with another card tutorial.

Take care,
xxx, Sanna
