Merry Moments Slimline Christmas Card

Hello, Friends!  I think you’re going to enjoy this Merry Moments Slimline Christmas Card today.  Why?  Because it is a very quick and easy make.  That really comes in handy during the busy holiday season.  It’s also a beautiful way to present a gift card.  Packaging a gift card in this pretty way really does make it feel more special.

Merry Moments Slimline Christmas Card How-To’s

Here’s how I put this quick and easy card together.

  • First, create a 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ side fold slimline card base.
  • Next, cut a 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ panel of red metallic cardstock.
  • Now cut a 3″ x 8″ panel of Simple Stories Rustic Christmas poinsettia paper.
  • Then cut the poinsettia panel in half at 4″.  Adhere the plaid pattern on the top of the red metallic cardstock and the poinsettias on the bottom.
  • Next, die cut the Spellbinders Merry Filigree twice from pearlized white cardstock. Die cut the circle frame from the same cardstock.  Then die cut the filigree sentiment from red metallic cardstock.
  • Now layer the outer filigree over the patterned paper.  I placed pop dots in the corners to create some depth.  Then I covered them up with Reneabouquets Holly Beautiful Board.
  • Then back the filigree sentiment with 1/8″ foam strips and adhere over the die cut circle.  Back this assembly with dimensionals and adhere in the center of the card.
  • Decorate the sentiment area with a beautiful Christmas plaid bow, greenery,  Christmas flowers, another holly piece and the Christmas girl.  Add some jingle bells for good measure.

Although it took me a few minutes to come up with the layout and design for this card, it’s actually quite quick and easy to put together.  You could easily make a stack of these and put them together assembly line style.

A Peek Inside

Finish the inside with designer papers and a pretty pocket that’s been dressed up with another die cut panel.  You can tuck in a tea bag, as I did here, or place a gift card in the pocket.

Do you make a stack of Christmas cards to give to friends, family and co-workers?  This simple design is on trend, comes together quickly and makes a great visual impact.  I hope you’ll give it a try.

    Love your style Kathy and this beautiful vintage style slim line (my favorite of late)! Another glorious color combo and embellishments (especially that little girl); just lovely. And of course Becca Feeken’s die set just adds to that nostalgic feel. (This die set is on my wishlist!). Wonderful card and lucky is the recipient of this project!

    I really don’t like to think of Christmas just yet, we are just now having our Thanksgiving weekend in BC so admitting that Christmas is around the corner, well, I’m just not ready for that yet. Beautiful card Kathy, I must get cracking at getting cards made! Wish I had a stash of them, but I do not. 🙁 Sad face. Have a great weekend Kathy!

    I really love slimline cards. You have a lot of real estate to embellish to your hearts content. I make mine 4X9, but this is easily adaptable to even the mini slimline, which I also like. Be well Kathy & Dale & TYFS

    What an absolutely gorgeous card, Kathy! It has a very nostalgic flair which I always love. The little girl on the front is so sweet in her pretty outfit. That ribbon with the fancy poinsettias is beautiful and reminds me of the embellishments they used to put on Christmas presents if you had them wrapped in the store. Of course those are days gone by. I just love the holly berry accents and the way you did the tea pocket on the inside. Thank you for sharing this beauty! Hugs!

      My eyes are drawn to that lovely plaid at the top of the card…all the traditional colors of Christmas. I so enjoy poinsettia images…this paper collection is beautiful! The inside pocket is beautiful…equally as lovely as the front. Just found out the Hallmark Channel will be starting their Christmas movies on Oct. 22nd…I am happy!
