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.
