Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I have 2 more “Slimline” cards … highlighting the beautiful Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Paper. These Slimline cards come from my 12 x 12 designer paper cutting pattern that highlights the desiger and leaves “no waste”.
I will be be sharing the video first … I think you’ll fall in love with the possibilities shown in the video. Grab your coffee and relax while I show you how to cut this stunning paper to maximize the design, and leave no waste at all!
If you liked the designs I shared in the video, wait till you see the finished cards I created for you! First we’ll check out the Monochromatic card with a little twinkle …
This slim beauty takes one of the four sections cut from the paper and layered it with a double mat! With the Basic White and Black and the Smoky Slate to pull in the grays from the designer paper … your card could be complete.
However, I wanted to highlight the silver foil in the paper so I added the Metallic Mesh Ribbon from the Annual Catalog and sprinkled on a few sequins from the Subtle Shimmer Sequins. They really add some magic to this monochromatic card …
The greetings on both cards come from the Peaceful Deer stamp set. The sentiments fit so beautifully with these wintry scenes.
The second card also was double matted but this time I added a pop of color!! What colors bring the holidays to mind more than our Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow. No bling bling on this card…
The Cherry Cobbler and Mossy Meadow frame our beautiful trees and it fills you mind with holiday cheer. I chose a banner to highlight the greeting and then tied it up so sweetly with the Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon … the earthy texture works perfectly with this card.
Not only did I double mat this one too, but I popped the first layer up to create extra depth to the card. The “Sending Love & Peace this Season” really invites your friends into the beautiful card you just made them … the greeting from the Peaceful Deer Stamp set teams up perfectly with this paper.
I hope the video inspired you and the two extra card samples where the cherry on top!! I wanted to surprise my stampin’ friends who joined me for the LIVE by sharing card samples totally different than what I showed in the LIVE.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit today. I hope you have a beautiful day.
And for inquiring minds … there were many trees down from the straight line winds and many more of our stamping friend without electricity. No one was hurt 🙂
