Poinsettia Gnome by Conie Fong

 Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!  I decided to try my hand at the popular slimline cards. The darling image is Conie Fong's "Poinsettia Gnome" image, found here: 

I didn't want to spend money on any slimline dies without knowing if I like making this type of card, so I decided to be creative.  I used Martha Stewart Around the Page "Skylands Snowflake" punches.  I cut an 8.5" x 4" piece of glittered cardstock and punched out 3 sides.  That's the only drawback for using these punches because cutting out 4 sides does not work for slimline cards.  But, if you don't mind that, then try it.

For the base of my card I used a 9" x 7 13/16" piece of cardstock and folded it in half.  I have quite a few of the MS Around the Page punches and they all work.  Nice tip, right?

I made my DT card for Conie Fong's current Facebook challenge: 

Thank you for visiting.  Have a happy day.  Hugs, Lori xx
