Santa Slimline

 Hello Friends and Welcome Back!

Today I have a SLIMLINE card to share with you!  This is only my 2nd slimline card, but I can see MANY more in my future!  (Ssshhh don't tell hubby but I've ordered dies specifically for this slimline style of design!  LOL)  Oh well ... what else am I going to do with all this EXTRA TIME in the cave!  Right?!?

Anyways ... my slimline card base measures 8 1/2 x 7 ... scored at 3 1/2.

 I have used holiday plaid background paper from an 12 x 12 Ella & Viv paper pack called 'Perfectly Plaid' and the stamps and dies sets are Lawn Fawn 'Ho Ho Holidays'.

 Lawn Fawn - Ho-Ho Holidays Stamps    Lawn Fawn - Ho-Ho Holidays Dies

I have used the Tutti Designs Dotted Nesting Squares as the background panels for my HoHo fun elements.

Such a fun and easy card to create!
I could have left it simply with the 3 images panels and a sentiment but
decided it needed a little snow & sparkle.

The hanging snowy panel was created with an old Martha Stewart punch
and the individual snowflakes are actually IRIDESCENT in color, NOT pink & yellow as they appear!  LOL

Diamond Stickles was used across the icy border as well as in the snowflake centers.
A dot of Nuvo white Crystal Drops was used at the start of my sentiment.

I doubt my craft shows will take place this year at our local High School
but if it does, I'll be ready with some fun 'slimline' cards to share.

Challenges to share in:
