Tall & Skinny...

Hi Stampers!

I wish I was talking about myself in the title but no such luck! I am more of a short and squatty unfortunately! What I am talking about though is this week's new Loves Rubberstamps Challenge of Skinny Cards! If I can't be skinny...I might as well make my cards skinny - LOL! This week our challenge is to create a card that will mail in a standard business size envelope, which would make your card a 4"x9" card. Tall & Skinny!

Here is my sample...

 I absolutely adore the Whimsy Stamps Wee Collection...it is one of my super favorites...and their Christmas images are super cute. You may remember that a few weeks ago we did the Christmas in July challenge and I used the Wee Collection Berry image (you can look at my project here) which was also super cute and I just think that this Holly image is a perfect companion! So YAY me... TWO Christmas Cards made for this year so far! It is a RECORD! LOL!

I colored Miss Holly here with a mix of copic markers and Spectrum Noir. I used my Tim Holtz Distress Walnut Stain to ink the edges. I don't think I can make one project without this! I used Liquid applique and dazzling diamonds on the snow to give it dimension. The Holly Spray I created using the Martha Stewart Branch punch and added 3 little red bling gems. I kept the embellishments simple because this will be mailed in the business envelope. I even used some of my hoarded Stampin Up! paper...yikes! This is my favorite pack of Christmas Paper and this is only the second time I have brought myself to use it! My Sentiment though is from a Simple Stories Paper line called Handmade Holiday.

Here are some close ups of Holly...

And another that I left a little darker so you could see the snow dimension better...

I hope you liked my project and it has inspired you to get Tall & Skinny with us this week! I also want to remind you that there is only one week left to try out for our Design Team! We are looking for all skill levels, and no design team experience is necessary to be considered. Read all about how to apply and requirements here! We would love to have have you try out!
