Hello there creative friends! Brrrr, today is cold in the Midwest and it gets me in the holiday spirit. Now I am not ready to turn on the Christmas songs just yet. I believe the Turkey need to be cleared from the table before that can happen, but I does inspire holiday creativity like Christmas card and gift tag prep.
I am sharing a beautiful Holiday
Cardinal Slimline card today! This is a no-stamp card and is created with three i-crafter die sets
The cutting deck is comprised of three layers with the middle layer being a solid core surrounded by a self-mending mat layer on each side. There is no annoying crackling when you pass it though your diecutting machine. I use a Platinum manual machine and an electronic Go Power and Emboss machine with the i-Mend ProCutting Deck
. I even travel with my i-Mend Self-Mending Magnetic ProCutting Deck
and the platforms,
I assembled the Redbird die cuts and glued the pieces together (as shown above). Next, I assembled 2 large and one tiny Poinsettia and glued them together as well.
I began to position the “Joy” Sentiment, redbird, branch and leaves, and Poinsettia on the silver tag until I found a layout I was pleased with.
I glued the layout into place on the silver tag. I took a length of slim organza ribbon and tied a bow at the top of the tag.
I cut an 8″ x 3 ” slimline card front from a red and white diagonally striped printed cardstock. I attached a 4″ strip of the green slim organza ribbon across the bottom of the card front 1″ from the bottom. I glued the card front to a white slimline cardbase.
I attached the silver tag to the slimline card just above the green organza ribbon strip using double sided adhesive foam squares to compete the card.
