Hey friends! Popping in a second time today with another Christmas in July card for your inspiration vault. I had a little fun this weekend playing with some Trinity Stamps goodies from last year that I hadn’t gotten to yet and came up with this fun Christmas slimline card.
I knew I wanted to create a fun scene with this adorable Cozy Christmas Cottage stamp set so I stamped a bundle of images that I thought would make a cute room and colored them with my copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and started playing to decide if I wanted a portrait or landscape card. Originally I was thinking portrait and then I pulled out the Slimline Room Builder dies and that went out the window because it was too perfect!
I cut the room builder floor from brown cardstock and the wainscoting portion of the wall from light green. Then I cut the chair rail and baseboard from white. I also die cut the Slimline Hip to be Square die from white for my “windows. I inked up a slimline panel with some light blue ink for the sky outside my windows and adhered the Hip to be Square panel to that. Then I glued the squares that came out back in where I didn’t want windows showing open. Next, I adhered the layers of my room builder – the floor and walls, etc.
With the room built I used a combination of liquid glue and foam squares to place all of my images filling in the scene and decorating the tree. For finishing touches I added bits of glossy accents and unicorn Stickles throughout the design.
At this point I didn’t want to muddle the cute room scene with a sentiment so I will choose one later on for the inside of my card that fits the recipient. I don’t do this often but it makes for a nice versatile card.
I’m going to link this fun card up to the BYSHC Christmas in July Hop today too! So excited to have a few cards in my stash already for the holiday season.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
