The Cat's Pajamas Stamps - TCPTUES371 - Hello Winter

 Happy Tuesday crafty friends!

There is still time to play along in this months challenge, TCPTUES371 of Slimline.  I love a long card and never make them, or at least many of them.  This challenge will get your thinking cap going and mojo flowing! 

For my card, I am using the newly release Cut Ups of Cardinal Duo and Hello Winter.  Both are beautiful dies that make card making easy and if you are needing bulk amounts, these dies will help. 

This card started with some heavy card stock in cream and used the same card stock to cut out the Cardinal Duo and the Hello Winter.  Using some red card stock, I cut out just the piece of the duo where the cardinal is situated to glue on top of the cream duo cut out. The same red card stock cut out was used for Hello Winter.  Once I knew where I wanted the cardinal duo to be placed, I brushed in a little yellow and orange distress inks for a background using the TCP Big Beautiful Blending Brush.  If you haven't gotten yourself one, you must!! It is a tool you need in your stash.  The duo was popped up using some foam tape and the Hello Winter was doubled layered to give it an outline.  This was also popped up.  I finished the card by spraying lightly over the card some shimmer water that I made, adding some glitter to the cardinal, a few muted rhinestones, and a thin strip of card stock to the bottom.

We hope you are able to play along with the Cat Pack to create some slimline cards! For more inspiration, check out the TCP Blog for more amazing creations! Thanks for popping in and hope you have a great one.
