CASEing Coast to Coast: Classic Christmas Slimline

Welcome to this month’s installment of CASEing Coast to Coast with Karen Hallam from CA and myself here in PA.  Karen provided beautiful inspiration this month with this card…

I’m loving the latest slimline trend in card making these days and was thrilled to see Karen’s.  So naturally that was the first element I knew I would be CASEing (Copying and Selectively Edit).  I also decided to follow her lead and create a Christmas card.  Here’s what I came up with…

Stampin Up Christmas Slimline Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

My card measures 8 1/2 x 3 3/4, so it’s a pretty big one.  That just made it more fun to decorate!  I used a variety of different products here which I listed at the end of the post.  These are my favorite kind of cards to make where I can pull together different elements, use products that I purchase and create a pretty card.

The Designer Series paper is from the Most Wonderful Time Refill Kit.  The DSP is part of the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley.  I often opt to buy just the refill kits without the stamps and dies.  The patterns in the DSP are so pretty and festive. The refill kits also come with many additional embellishments.  I used one of the sticker embellishments on the front of the envelope.

However, the DSP pattern measures 6″ x 6″ so I had to do a little retro fitting.  Here’s my solution…

I cut the 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP into two 2 1/2″ x 6″ pieces and centered and glued them onto the Old Olive card stock.  Then I trimmed the sides.

The inside sentiment is from the Wrapped in Christmas stamp set and is stamped in Garden Green ink.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!
