Christmas in July

Happy Thursday!! Nora here from A Creative Touch with a slimline Christmas card. This is only the second slimline card I ever created and it was so fun!!

I started off this card by stamping with Versamark ink onto a white card base sized 8 1/4" by 3 1/4" with Bringing on the Snowflakes and heat embossing the snowflakes in white.

Next I used Victorian Velvet as my first color to blend onto the front of my cardstock.

I followed this with Abandoned Coral.

Then I used Festive Berries.

Over that I used Candy Apple Distress Ink.

I did go back and forth with the color before to get this blend. The last color I used was Vintage Photo Ink. When I was done with the blending, I spritzed water over the top to give it some texture. 

I let the cardfront dry while I die cut the sentiment three times using the Merry Christmas Fri-dies. I stacked the die cuts together, adhering them for some dimension. I used some Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops over the top and set it aside to dry.

I then stamped some small snowflakes using the Snowy Sayings stamp set and heat embossed them with gold embossing powder. 

I took the card front and sprinkled gold watercolor and watered down white acrylic paint on top. I then dried it using a heat gun and then adhered the panel over a red card base measuring 
8 1/2" by 3 1/2."

I adhered some vellum strips over the top of the card front and then the dried sentiment over that. 

My last step was to adhere some gold stars that I die cut using the Fun-Fetti Fri-dies.

This card was so fun to make!!! I encourage you to create a slim line card of your own.

I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. If you like what I did, use my code NORASENTME to get 15% off your total order.

Love this, Nora. Your card is so bright and vibrant. I would not have believed it started out white if you hadn't shown all those photos!! I am waiting for some dies to arrive, and then I will also try my first slim line card. Yours is fantastic.
