Hi there! We have a challenge for our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop that is sketch challenge and here’s what I did for it.

Stampin' Up! Slimline card with Boughs of Holly DSP & more

Stampin' Up! Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

I’ve chosen to do a slimline card :O) for this challenge using the Boughs of Holly DSP as the main focus. I even used another piece of DSP as a layer behind the super colorful panel. I colored the Crinkled Seam Binding with a Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends to ‘tie’ it all together. And the sentiment on the front is on a Basic White piece stamped in Mossy Meadow ink using the Leaves of Holly stamp set & die cut with the Holly Berry Dies. These two coordinate & so when purchased together offer a 10% discount!!! Just sayin’… if you want this bundle, this is the way to go. OK, what else…you can see I slipped the ribbon behind the sentiment banner for a bit of fun. I think it adds a nice touch. The ribbon is adhered in place with a glue dot and the piece that slips behind the sentiment banner also has a glue dot. The banner is on dimensionals. Measurements will be given at the end of this post. :O)

Stampin' Up! slimline card, inside, Merriest Moments

For the inside I used another piece of the same DSP as on the layer on the front, from Boughs of Holly DSP. then added a Basic White panel. This panel is stamped using Merriest Moments stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink. The holly leaves are stamped first in Old Olive ink, stamped off, then with a sponge dauber, inked with Shaded Spruce ink and stamped on the panel. I love this look, the varied colors so similar to nature! Again, card stock measurements will be listed at the end of this post.

Stampin' Up! Slimline Envelopes

And here’s the Slimline Envelope (157981) decorated using the Merriest Moments stamp set.I inked the holly leaf stamp in Old Olive, stamped off, used the sponge dauber & Shaded Spruce ink to add a bit of variation, then stamped the envelope with each holly leaf. And that was it!!! YAY!
