Slimline Christmas

Hi friends! I'm popping in today with a card I created for the August TCP Tuesday challenge. This month's challenge is to create a slimline card, and since I'm a little hooked on them lately, it was right up my alley.  I also just received some new stamps from the July release and had to give them a spin!

I started by stamping the pinecones, branches, and holly leaves on cream cardstock from the Oh Crhistmas Tree set and then cutting with the coordinating die set. You can save a little money if you buy the stamp and die sets together in the Oh Christmas Tree Bundle.

Next I arranged them together, gluing them down to make an accent piece.  The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye Oh What Fun collection, and I cut it down to fit a slimline card and then matted with evergreen cardstock.  I finished with a sentiment from the Big, Fat, Holiday Greetings set stamped directly on the snowflake paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic day.  And if you've never tried a slimline card, it's the perfect time to try one out!  I typically make mine from a 8.5" x 7" piece of cardstock, folded in half on the 7" side.  TCP stamps are not required, so come play along and be entered in this month's prize drawing!

I really like your card and the layout you created. Your card also reminded me of all the 12x12 pads of Christmas/Winter themed paper I have. Thanks so much for the inspiration. I think I'll try to make a few slimline Christmas cards too.

What a striking card Julee - love your cluster of greenery and pine cones against the snowflake paper, and that sentiment is striking stamped like that.
Stay safe

Very lovely card but what I was wondering about is the envelopes you use. Have seen these slim line cards but no one talks about the envelopes that they use.
Do you make them yourself or do you purchase them somewhere?
Thank U.
