It’s Your Birthday Mini Slimline Card

January 11, 2022

Happy New Year!, it’s Tina here with my first post for 2022. I’m starting off the New Year with 2 promises I made in 2021. Turning the Holiday Train into a train that can be used all year round and turning the Scarecrow into a Raggedy Ann doll. Below are the steps to create your own card.

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

Step 2 – Trim Stitched Indented Rectangles using White Soft Finish Cardstock. To turn it into a mini slimline size diecut partial leaving on end out. Turn it around and align it with the diecut and finish it with the end in and the other end out. Whatever is out of the cutting plate will not diecut. See photo below.

Step 3 – Apply Ink to the panel created in Step 2. I used Distress Oxide Ink Tumbled Glass using a Blender Brush. Fade it out towards the bottom.

Step 4 – Stamp Life Is Better On The Farm sentiment using the panel created from Step 2 using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.

Step 5 – Diecut Scarecrow in various colors of cardstock and clothes using patterned paper. If you have the Party Accessories then diecut party hat and adhere to scarecrow head using Kids Choice Glue. If you don’t you can always cut a triangle and add a tiny pompom. For the balloon you can always use a small circle die and use a piece of yarn for the balloon cord.

Step 6 – Diecut Holiday Train and Train Card using various colors of cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape. Adhere to Raggedy Ann and Balloon using Foam Tape. (You may need to trim the Raggedy Ann as per my card).

This card can be used for several occasions by changing the colors and/or sentiment. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Gnomes and Holiday Trains

November 29, 2021

Karen here. I’m having so much fun with the new release from Joset. Today I made a couple simple and sweet holiday cards using the Gnomes and the Holiday Train die sets. Love putting together these designs from Joset. It reminds me of playing with paper dolls when I was a kid – so fun and relaxing!

To start these cards, I cut two card fronts from 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock. I also cut a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock in a 4″ inch strip and a 2″ inch strip. I adhered them to the card fronts in a diagonal way. On one of them, I also cut a 3/4″ strip of Soft Finish Cardstock and stamped a sentiment on it from the stamp set in the Classic Christmas Set. For the other, I stamped the sentiment right on the card front. Then I die cut one with a Stitched Rounded Rectangle and the other with a Stitched Indented Rectangle die.

For the Gnome girl, I cut her dress and hat with red cardstock, and her shoes, collar and bows with green cardstock. I colored her skin with a Copic E00 and her hair with a Copic Y23. I added a few presents as embellishments. The hearts are also in the Gnomes dies, and I thought they were the perfect little addition in the corner.

The Holiday Train is cut with a combination of 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock, green cardstock and Kraft Cardstock. (The darker brown has Distress Ink in Tea Dye added to it. The fun “trick” to making assembly easy is to add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the pieces that are on top. What a great way to turn the die cut into a sticker.

So easy; so fun. Thank you for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen
