I love stripes, and thought I would create a slimline Christmas card. For this card I didn’t want the stripes to be candy cane colors, but more of an elegant black and white. I saw the design in my head, and put it onto paper using the NEW Slimline Pines stamp set. This was a pretty quick card, and I created a cool envelope to go with it. Details below.
Creating this Card:
I started out by die cutting a frame from the Slimline Scenic Countryside die set, and then popped it up off the black and white striped pattern paper. Once The pieces were assembled I wrapped it with some fun dot ribbon, and adhered to the card base. This made for a sturdy slimline card. The main image from the Pines Slimline stamp set were colored up, I adhered it to the card front, and added the sentiment. The pines needed a little sparkle, so I used Diamond Dust glass glitter to add that special touch.
I wanted a fun matching envelope, so I created an envelope to compliment the card with a fun black and white checkered pattern paper using the Slimline Envelope Builder die. Did you know Whimsy Stamps has two envelope builder sizes? You can find the other side HERE.
