Merriest Moments – Yuletide Christmas

Welcome back!  In anticipation of my upcoming Holiday cards class that begins this month and runs through to November…Let’s get in the spirit.

Four challenges today: Make My Monday (#181) Christmas in August, Jingle Belles for a Slim-Line card, Tic Tac Toe (#175) for the elements and the Tuesday Morning Sketch (#671) that I adapted to a slim-line format to bring it all together.

Here is the result: 



  • Card Base: (7” x 6” scored at 3½”) Basic White cardstock for a mini slim-line card.
  • Focal Panel: (5¾” x 3¼”) Basic White cardstock.
    • Using various stamps from the Merriest Moments stamp set, the Foliage Spray was stamped. Colors selected: Granny Apple Green, Soft Succulent, Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler.
    • The completed panel was dry-embossed with the retired Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Sentiment Shape: Basic White cardstock scrap and Cherry Cobbler cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, Merry Christmas, from the retired Yuletide Christmas stamp set was stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink.
    • The sentiment was die cut with the (2¼” x 1¼”) Oval die from the retired Stitched Shapes Dies set.
    • The Cherry Cobbler (2⅜” x 1⅜”) accent Scalloped Oval was die-cut from the retired Layering Ovals Dies set.
  • Banner: (5”x ½”) Brushed Gold cardstock hand-notched to create the flagged ends.

A little bit of adhesive and the card was put together.  A few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for a bit of Holiday bling.

Glad you spent some of your time with me today.  Cheers,  Jolanda.
