Season's Tweetings Mini Slimline Card

 My final mini slimline card for today comes from Call Me Crafy Al's April 2022 Sheet Load of Cards design. It's listed as a fun fold card because the card is scored off center so that there's a bit of the inside of the card that shows on the right side when the card is folded shut. Her design had designer paper only on the edge that shows, but I decided to put DP down to cover the entire side of the interior so I could write a message there.

I chose some cute DP with poinsettias and holly on it and cut green card stock to make the mini slimline card base. Following Crafty Al's instructions, I scored the card off center so that the front panel is shorter than the back panel. I then embossed the card based using a Cuttlebug EF called Holly Ribbons.

I used a free digi from Create A Smile and colored it with Copics before popping it up with foam tape. Then I made a greeting using the Bee Kind Display font in my Silhouette Design Studio software. I did a print and cut of the sentiment and then cut out some green card stock for the mat behind the sentiment. The original card design had the sentiment placed a little differently, but this design worked better for me. For the interior, I used a Spellbinder holly die and white card stock and then colored it with Copics.
