I began my slimline card by creating an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base which fits perfectly into the size 9A envelopes.
For the background, I inked the sky using chipped sapphire, faded jeans & blueprint sketch and splattered some white paint using a damp paint brush.
While the sky dried, I created the adorable mouse house by first, trimming the green pattern paper to fit the card and then the shingles with the grey pattern. Next, I die cut all the windows, doors and accessories, some multiple times to get the dimension I wanted. I set those aside a moment to stamp the mice, chimney & christmas lights, coloed with copic markers and then cut out using the coordinating dies to each set.
For the front of the house, I die cut the snowhills making sure I stamped the sentiment before adhering. I finished it all with the shiny layered merry, a few sweet treats on the wreath and a string of lights!
I hope I have inspired you to take a second look at your dies to use them in different ways!
