Let it snow {Rachelle Anne Miller Creative Studios}

Hi. Sharing a simple mini slimline today with a cute image from Rachelle Anne Miller. I love this Snowman Hug image, and I’ve used it previously for a wintery birthday card, but today, I’ve got a red and tealy blue Christmas card to share. If you use the code ELINVENGE in Rachelle’s store, you get a 10 % discount on your purchase.

I feel like I haven’t made my signature cluster cards in a while, so I decided to pull out patterned paper scraps and my Happy Days Ticket Stubs die from XCut, an amazing die that cut nine different tickets in one pass, I love it. It’s an older die, but I always use it for my clusters.

I don’t often create red Christmas cards, but when I can pair that red with a tealy blue, a light blue or a gray, I can make red work. I printed and colored the image onto a 3 1/4 x 6 1/4″ panel of X-Press It blending card, before sprinkling on lots of chunky white embossing enamel from Stampendous to make my scene extra snowy.

The patterned papers are all die cut from the 6×6″ Home for the Holidays paper stack from Maja Design. I love their patterns and their colors, and the colors in this stack are SO good, I couldn’t resist.

Mini slimline cards are fun to make. I really should make my envelopes as I go, but I’m not very consistent with that, I’m afraid, and will have lots of envelopes to create once we get a little closer to Christmas (we’ve got less than 100 days to go, by the way).

I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Holiday stamp set from My Favorite Things onto a scrap piece of patterned paper from that stack from Maja Design, and die cut that with the coordinating Itty Bitty Strips die.

I added a few snowdrift sprinkles from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards, and the entire panel is adhered onto a card base I made from Wild Cherry cardstock from My Favorite Things. I love their cardstock!

As usual, I finish with my colors. Not a whole lot for this image.
