Vintage Christmas Mini Slimline | Tim Holtz Cozy Christmas Stamp Set

Hello everyone and thank you for joining me for these Vintage Christmas Mini Slimline cards, this is not my usual style but I really like how they turned out. So let's jump right in.

As always I like to cut down my cardstock so I trimmed out two 6 x 6 inch bases and scored they at 3 inches giving me two 3 x 6 inch bases, I also cut a black matte to 1/8th of an inch smaller than the base and a panel 1/8 th of an inch smaller than the black matte, I like to add layers. I decided to used Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock for my panels because I love the look of Distress Oxide inks on top of it. I brought out the two largest images from the Tim Holtz Cozy Christmas set and my Misti as a stamp positioner will make this technique a lot easier.

Once I had my Image lined up on my Kraft panel I brought out some Finger Daubers and Distress Oxide Inks in Rustic Wilderness, Candied Apple, Vintage Photo, Antique Linen and Salvaged Patina. Using the finger daubers to add the colour to different areas on the stamp, some area's needed more layers so I ended up stamping down the colours a few times, also for a vintage look I added vintage photo in a few extra areas. This is where the stamping platform comes in handy as it would be difficult to keep trying to line up the image over and over to build up the colours.

Once I was happy with the colours I flicked on some Picket Fence Distress paint and some clean clear water just to add some texture in the background and once that was dry I also brought in some Vintage Shimmer pearls to add some extra shimmer and shine to the cards. All I had left was to adhere the layers together and call these done!! I hope you enjoyed a quick run down of how these cards came together, If you would like a more in-depth look at how I made these two mini slimline cards please check out the step by step video below. I also have a full supplies list below the video if you want to know exactly what I used.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
