Slimline Christmas Gleaming Ornament Card

This week is going to be all Slimline cards!  I’ve been playing around with them and trying out different stamp sets and colors and I’m excited to share them with you!  This past week I got together on Zoom with some of my crafty friends and we just talked and crafted together…each of us making our own projects in our own home.  It was a fun time and this is one of cards I made: I actually combined two different stamp sets…Christmas Gleaming for the ornaments and Curvy Christmas for the pine boughs and the sentiment.  This was a cinch to make as the Christmas Gleaming Stamp set has a set of two ornament punches, so once I stamped the ornaments and colored them, I just punched them out!  No fussy cutting! For the three ornaments in the middle of the card above, I stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then traced the lines with the Balmy Blue Dark Stampin’ Blends marker and then filled in the color with the Balmy Blue Light. For the two larger ornaments on either end, I stamped those in Night of Navy ink.  The tops of the ornaments I colored with both the Light and Dark Crumb Cake Blends markers. After making the ornaments and placing them on the front of the card, I decided that they needed something to hang on….so I found the perfect bough in the Curvy Christmas Stamp set.  I started in the middle and stamped one on each side, and then stamped a partial bough so that it would look like it was going all the way across.  I used Dimensionals to add the ornaments to the card front along with some bows so that it would look like the ornaments were tied on to the branch. If you would like to try this card, these are the supplies that you need:
    • Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set
    • Gleaming Ornaments Punch Pack
    • Curvy Christmas Stamp Set
    • Night of Navy Cardstock – Cut 8″ x 7 1/2″ – Score on the SHORT side at 3 3/4″
    • Balmy Blue Cardstock – Cut 7 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
    • Whisper White Cardstock – Cut 1 piece 7 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ and Cut 1 piece 7 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ , Plus scraps for stamping 5 ornaments – 3 large and 2 small.
    • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Night of Navy and Shaded Spruce.
    • Stampin’ Blends: Balmy Blue and Crumb Cake
    • Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack (Night of Navy)
    • Adhesive: Stampin’ Seal and Dimensionals
I also did some stamping on the inside of the card.  Because this is a slimline card there is lots of space inside, so I took advantage of that and stamped some pine bought in the corners along with one of the smaller ornaments.  The greeting on the card inside is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set. Happy Stamping! Patricia
