A Victorian Christmas in August ! Who Has Started Their Christmas Crafting?

Hi everyone and thank you for visiting my blog today.

Today I am sharing a slimline Christmas Card and matching envelope.

I was kindly sent the pretty papers by CraftStash when I was on their Design Team last year.  I used the "A Luxury Victorian Christmas" 12 x 12 and 8 x 8 inch paper pads which have a very traditional Christmas theme and colour pallette.

I do love a slimline card and it was a great opportunity to use my Hemstitch Slimline Etched Dies by Amazing Paper Grace.   I love the punched holes created with the dies; backed with gold foil card, the foil sparkles through subtly and elegantly, enhancing the christmas papers.

The focal point was made using the Amazing Paper Grace Double Halo Oval dies in conjunction with my Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Glimmer Wreaths Glimmer Hotfoil Plate to add the foiled Chistmas Sentiment.

I really do love to coordinate cards with envelopes, so I used my 12 x 12 paperpad  to create the matching slimline envelope.   I found a great video tutorial on Youtube by Jenny Card Designs which gives you the measurements and a step by step demonstration on how to put it together.

I am really pleased with this card and will be sharing some other ideas for using these papers in the run up to Christmas.

Hope you like it.

Bye for now and ......................."happy crafting everybody"!
