Hello crafty readers! Today I am excited to be sharing the first card I made using some really fun products from Whimsy Stamps. I credit my friend Candice for being the one who introduced me to making slimline cards, and ever since I discovered this larger canvas to work on, I have been hooked! This is just one of the reasons I love Whimsy Stamps - because they are now offering slimline dies. P.S. -I'll share another reason soon! For today's card I have used the Slimline Postage Die and the fun and slightly sassy gingerbread men from the GingerSnaps stamp set.
*Full list of supplies at end of post.
The base of this 8 1/2" x 3 1/2" sized card is made from Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. The first
8 1/4" x 3 1/4" matted layer is a piece of kraft cardstock. I cut the Postage Slimline Die from red cardstock. I lined the back of the Postage Slimline die with a scrap piece of plaid designer paper. I stamped all of the gingerbread men in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I colored all of the images with Copic markers. I used my Scan & Cut to cut the images out. I adhered the gingerbread men to the card with foam adhesive for added dimension. I stamped several of the sentiments in Versafine CLAIR Pinecone ink on white cardstock and notched both ends before adhering them to the card also with foam adhesive. I added in a couple red candy mints (stamped in Versafine CLAIR Tulip Red ink) and candy canes to fill in the spaces between the gingerbread men. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the images for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed today's funny holiday themed card. Thanks for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
