This week’s Global Design Project is to CASE Madeleine Mrotzek and her inspiring card. I love her slimline design and bright colors. Won’t you join in the fun, and hang your design in our gallery?

The slimline design was easily accomplished with a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 7″, folded at 3 1/2″. Then I added a layer of Basic White Cardstock, 8 1/4″ X 3 1/4″.

Next, using a Happy Forrest Die, I cut trees from five colors of Cardstock: Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party, Daffodil Delight, Pale Papaya, and Flirty Flamingo.

“Oh, Christmas tree”


After cutting the trees, I used a Trees For Sale stamp to stamp trees in the same ink colors across the white layer. Before gluing the die-cut trees next to the stamped trees, I flicked a Black Stampin’ Blend brush against the lid to add a spray of dots.


The sentiment, “Christmas Greetings,” is from the Trees For Sale Stamp Set. I stamped it in Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, fussy cut, and attached it with Dimensionals. The last detail was stamping stars from the Trees For Sale Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink.
