Holiday Wishes and Peppermint Kisses Mini Slimline Card

This was such a fun card to make! I found a My Favorite Things Snow Swirls Cover-Up at my local craft outlet the last time I was there, and I snatched it up! I love the way there are swirls at the top and snow drifts at the bottom! I feel like I can use this for a summer card, too, with an ocean theme. 

To make the card, I cut out a mini slimline card base out of white card stock and then die cut the Snow Swirls Cover-Up in both blue and white. I cut the bottom part of the white panel out and adhered it to the blue panel and then trimmed it to fit a mini slimline card. After trimming it, I adhered it to the card front. I created the sentiment using my Silhouette Design Studio software and did a print and cut of the sentiment and the graphic (a free graphic from Creative Fabrica). I popped those elements up using foam tape and then added a couple snowflakes I had die cut out of silver glitter paper for a previous project. I love when I can find a use for my extra embellishments! 

Look at the gorgeous detail from the Snow Swirls Cover-Up die!
