Oh So Merry

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Rebecca Ednie our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges.

Our challenge this week is to create a Bridge card. 

As I am still enjoying creating Slimline cards when I can, I decided to create a Slimline Bridge Card for the challenge today.

To create my card, I started out with a piece of red cardstock that measures 4 inches x 9 inches. I then scored this panel at 1 1/4 inches & 2 1/4 inches on either end of the card.

The bridge panel at the bottom of the card is 9 inches long. This completed this creates a Slimline Bridge card that is 4 inches x 9 inches.

To decorate my card I used Mama Elephant's Gingerbread Cookies stamp set. I placed all the gingerbread cookies, the milk bottle and note to Santa on the bridge panel at the bottom of the card.

On the back panel I added the Oh So Merry sentiment which is a die included in Mama Elephant's The Penguin Waddle die set. This was layered onto an elongated oval using Spellbinders Mega Ovals & Mega Scallop Ovals which are two older die sets in my stash.

The Slimline Bridge Card fold down flat and will fit into a #4 Envelope.

On the back of the card I added a panel of white cardstock. I placed a piece of leftover patterned paper to the left side of the panel. 

I added the milk bottle and three gingerbread men to the lower right hand side of the panel.

I added a Christmas sentiment to the top left corner of the panel.

This is a good place to write a personal greeting for the recipient of the card.

This is so fun! I have two Bridge Cards scheduled, but haven't tried a Slimline one yet. Now I'm inspired!
