I started with a kraft slimline card base (3.5" x 8.5"). I used white pigment ink with a cloud stencil and a blender brush to create the billowy white clouds over the entire card front.
For the greeting, I combined a large "love" die cut with skinny sentiment strips. I used the Free with $60 Loopy Love Die-namics for the word love. The stamped words, sending and your way, come from the Bitty Hugs & Kisses set. Lastly, I added some sequins and little die cut clouds and hearts to embellish the background.
I Copic colored the adorable little fox and bunny hugging along with several heart flowers images from Hug It Out. I created a very simple scene to go below the banner. To complete the scene, I stamped the sentiment which also comes from Hug It Out.

Hello friends! Anyone else still hustling to get their Christmas cards done? I certainly am! I have one to share today that features many die cut elements. If you still need to make a bunch of holiday cards, this design would be quick and easy to mass produce.

Happy Holidays everyone! I've been busy working with the latest Hello Bluebird release and wanted to share a few cards I've finished. This release is packed with super adorable stamp sets and dies for creating winter themed projects, however I did manage to use one of the sets for a Christmas card.
First up is a winter themed slimline card featuring Snow Day and the Winter Walk Scene die. I decided to use soft pinks and greens for this scene. This card could easily be used as Christmas card simply by adding a holiday greeting.
- bear - E40, E41, E42, R00, R20, R21, G43, G46
- hedgehog - E70, E71, E74, E77, E41, E42, R00, R20, G40, G43, G46
- squirrel - E30, E31, E35, E40, R00, R20, R22
- owl - E70, E71, E74, E40, YR20, YR21, R00, G40, G46
- bunny - W0, W1, W4, R00, R20, R21, G43
- fox - E11, E13, E15, E40, R00, G40, G43
For this next card, I have used Feed the Birds to create a thank you card. Again, by changing the greeting, I think this card could be used for holiday or other occasions. I also tried out a new to me color combo with lavender and navy.
Copics used to color the images are listed below.
- squirrel - W0, W1, E40, E41, R00, R20
- birds - E40, E41, E43, E44, R00, R20
- seeds and bag - E40, E43, W0, W1

- snow on birdhouse - B0000, B000
- girl's skin tones - E000, E00, E02,
- girl's hair - E30, E31, E34
For this last card, I used the Long Distance stamp set to create Christmas card. I really struggle with making masculine cards especially for Christmas. My goal with this card design was keeping it very classic so I could use to give to my Dad or brother.
- squirrels - E30, E31, E35, W1, YR30, R00, R20
- cans - C1, C3
- branches - E41, E43

Hello everyone! I'm excited to be sharing a card featuring some of the brand new Die-namics from My Favorite Things December Release. I instantly thought slimline design when I saw the Joyful Giraffe and Sending Big Hugs Die-namics. They are a fun size and fill the space of a slimline card easily.
This slimline design is pretty straight forward. Just die cut and assemble. There's a sentiment set that perfectly coordinates with the Joyful Giraffe called Giraffe Greetings. So I added a little stamped sentiment strip at the top of the card.

Hello friends! I'm sharing some festive coffee cup shaped cards today. I have several coffee drinkers in my family so these will come in handy. I will be enclosing a coffee shop gift card in each one. The Coffee Cup Card Honey Cuts is one of my favorite Honey Bee die cut sets of all time. These cup shaped cards can easily be customized for any holiday or occasion with patterned paper.
