Christmas Kickstart: Slimline Cards

 The challenge at Christmas Kickstart is to create a slimline card. When I started adding to my slimline stash I was planning to keep it to general dies and stencils but I couldn't resist this Christmas stamp.  Then I never got around to using it at Christmas! So here it is!

The image panel is cut with Trinity Stamps Modern Embossed Frame Panels.  These types of dies are some of the most boring dies to buy but, for me, they are the most used.  They are just rectangles, but I love finished edges especially when I am doing nothing but putting it on background paper.

I added glitter to the star and it's on the top edge of the "ground" also which I added just as a balance to the star.  A few sparkly sequins as starlight - and this card is done.  I actually played around with it for quite awhile trying different colors of different embellishments but I love the stamp and thought it worked well on its own.

Thanks to Christmas Kickstart for giving me the inspiration to use this stamp!

  2. Hi Kim, I was only thinking about you yesterday! I love your card - I have SUCH a thing for kraft card just now. Your simple palette really makes that gorgeous stamp shine. So glad to see you at Christmas Kickstart again, Jo x

  3. I think the stamp does work on its own and the addition of ground was a perfect offset to the star above. Great card.
    So glad you joined the Christmas Kickstart Challenge. Elf - Arlene
