Victorian Christmas Memories Slimline Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  I think you are going to enjoy the Victorian Christmas Memories Slimline Card that I have to share with you today.  It’s filled with sweet nostalgic images, rich colors and adorned with gorgeous Christmas plaid ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Once again, I’ve pulled my Mixed Media boots out of the Closet of Inspiration and Delight to create this dreamy slimline card.  Of course, Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and Printed Beautiful Board looks right at home nestled in with these stunning ribbons and trims! Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

Bringing Home the Christmas Wreath

Yuletide Slimline Card with Reneabouquets Beautiful Board and Really Reasonable Ribbon by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

This sweet winter pixie is dreaming about ice skating on the pond as she bringing home the Christmas wreath!  Perhaps our Christmas Lovebirds will build their winter nest in it’s sheltering branches. It looks like they have “borrowed” a bit of the holiday ribbon to help keep themselves warm, doesn’t It?

TIP:  Create your own snow flurries by spattering the background papers with diluted ivory chalk paint.

TIP:  Add a small wood slice and pine branches to create a magical woodland vibe in your card.  Machine stitched edges, painted jingle bells, and beautiful bows make this 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ card display-worthy!

A Peek Inside

Stamp a golden wreath inside the card, then add a simple Christmas greeting for the win.  The side pocket holds a delicious Christmas tea bag and honey stick.  Now our card can double as a gift!

Don’t you wish we could step into this card and feel the crisp winter air bite at our cheeks, hear the sweet birds singing, and smell the aroma of the freshly cut pine?  Well, we can if we just use our imagination!

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Great card Kathy, love the papers and you know how I feel about the wee birdies. I have yet to make a slimline card, can you believe it. I have some card bases cut and ready to go though so I am closer. Really sweet project Kathy. Happy Saturday.

    Oh Kathy, this card just warms my heart! The little birdies and the Christmas girl are absolutely adorable. This paper collection is so versatile for Winter and Christmas cards. The images have a beautiful nostalgic look. I love what you did with the corner embellishments and the surprise tea pocket on the inside! Thank you for sharing! Hugs!

    Winter spice tea is just the thing for this vintage wintery scene. Splatters of snow flurries add to the vibe, and I just love those clusters of embellies, especially the bells. It was unusually cool for us this morning, considering summer is on the doorstep. This card fit into the scene as the sun rose into a crisp clear sky, and I sipped hot tea! Thanks for sharing Kathy.

    Your ribbon clusters are really lovely on this card. Once again, those pine boughs add just the right amount of rustic nature. Birds wearing winter scarves? Even vintage cards can be whimsical! Lovely card, Kathy!

    Love is in the air recently – birds nestling heads together, skaters adoringly looking at each other and tea (says love & comfort to me). You have captured our imaginations with your style that always brings cherished memories floating in our heads – a lovely morning luxurious visual path to those tours of our past winters. Kathy you have created yet another triumphant showpiece – KUDOS my friend!

    Oh my goodness Kathy! Another beautiful vintage beauty! These Blue Fern papers are my new favorite! As you can tell I’m playing catch up! And am I ever glad I am catching up! Wow! This card is perfect too! Luv your mixed media boots! I can’t believe I still haven’t gotten brave enough to try your snow ways! So afraid I’ll mess up my card, but try it I will! I luv it so much when you do it! Thanks again for sharing another amazing gorgeous card! Big hugs, Suzy Q
