This Winter Camper Slimline Card will make you a happy camper!
I’ve only recently begun experimenting with slimline cards. If you don’t know what slimline cards are, they are simply cards that will fit into a legal size envelope. That’s the basic shape.
You can make them horizontal/landscape orientation, like the one above. Or you can make a really tall card by orienting it vertically/portrait.
One of the things I love about slimline cards is the freedom it can give you! I have alphabet dies, for example, that I love but I can only fit four letters across a landscape A2 sized card. With a slimline card, I have a lot more word options.
With my Winter Camper Slimline Card, I had the space to make a nice, wide scene. No crowding the images! Had I done an A2 sized card, I likely would have left out the snowman entirely. I really wanted space in this snow scene.
My experiment with making glowing Christmas lights worked out pretty well, I think. They look glow-y to me anyway!
Although I could stand to do more in the way of shadow and light, I’m learning! And the practicing has been really fun. You can see some earlier examples of me working on night skies here and here.
So check out the whole video below! I hope you enjoy it!
Y’all take care!

This is beautifully done! I especially like your shadows; a subtle but effective detail. And so glad you left plenty of space around your images. A very peaceful scene 🙂
Thanks so much, Kelly! I thoroughly enjoyed creating it.
