A very Merry Christmas to You {Lili of the Valley}

Hi, crafty friends. I have a super simple mini slimline card to share today, featuring this adorable Merry Christmas Penguins image from Lili of the Valley. Christmas is 11 months away, it’s never to early to start making those holiday cards.

I love the playful nature of the Lili of the Valley stamps, and their adorable critters drew me in when I was a new cardmaker years and years ago. I still have all my old rubber stamps from Lili of the Valley, and they stamp so well. This one is digital, however, and the two main advantages that I see in digital stamps are that you can adjust the size to suit your needs and that there’s no waiting for ink to dry. Also, you get a perfect print every time. I love digital stamps!

I haven’t made a mini slimline card in a while, and decided that this image would be perfect for it. I created a card base that was slightly smaller than an average mini slimline. This one measures 5 1/4 x 3″, it fit the scene better than a 6″ wide base.

I colored the scene with Copics, cut it down to a size that left a nice border around the edge and adhered it directly to the card base, before adding some crystals from a mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards to the banner.

The crystals add a tiny bit of dimension to an otherwise fairly flat card, and those penguins are the cutest, aren’t they?

Simple color palette for this one.
