The design for this mini slimline card came from Call Me Craft Al's September 2022 Sheet Load of Cards design. She includes the dimensions if you want to make a single card rather than a full sheet load, which was handy for me this time as I just wanted to make a single card.
I started by making a top-fold card base using kraft card stock that's 3.25X4.25. I embossed a piece of green card stock using a Richard Gary Lumberjack Days EF called "Knitted Pattern." I followed Crafy Al's design for the sizing of the card stock pieces on the front of the card and then used my Silhouette Cameo to do a print and cut of the adorable Polkadoodles "Elvis Wesley Christmas Moose Hot Chocolate" digi (pre-colored version). Isn't he darling?! I used a Spellbinders oval die to die cut the frame around him and another Spellbinders die for the holly. I die cut two holly die cuts: one in green and one in burgundy using the same papers I had used for the other elements of the card. I cut the burgundy berries off the leaves and adhered them to the green leaves using foam tape to make them pop up a little.
For the sentiment, I used my Silhouette Design Studio software to design the sentiment and then did a print and cut of it.
