World Wide Open Design Team Challenge
This year has had me making Christmas cards every month, so I'll certainly be ready for the season. Here are my latest mini-slimline cards made as inspiration for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge. There are now challenges with Christmas and Winter so you can find one that fits your winter cards.
My first card has lots of presents and instead of Santa, a gnome is in charge of all the gifts and stockings.

I'm the elf for the Christmas Kickstart Challenge this month. This challenge is always about Christmas and this month, it's also about MINI-SLIMLINE cards, so get ready, get set, GO!
As guest, I was able to choose the challenge of the month, so if you don't like mini-slimline cards, blame me! I'll gladly take the blame.
The challenge starts May 2nd at 10:30 a.m. GMT or 2:30 a.m. Pacific time, San Francisco, USA and ends May 30th.
The card base for a mini slimline card is typically 3" X 6" (7.63 X 15.24 cm). These are approximate sizes and we won't be checking to see if your card meets the exact standard for either size. )
I decided to make a simple but fun card for my first card - first? - yes, I had to make two. I used the same darling Santa in both my mini-slimline cards.

I made a card for a friend I made through Toastmasters (20/20 Visionaries in the Sacramento area via Zoom). I was able to give her my card last week because I flew to Chicago to visit her. We had a great time with me giving her a hard time about the COLD. She would respond with "poor California girl". Since she has opened her card, I can now post it. I thought making this image part of the party balloon was fun and cute. She agreed.
I do love that Big Balloon die and I only used it once about six months ago. Shame on ME!

Slimline Cards - Don't you love them?
I also love scenes and so I made a slimline scene card for my partner in the Card Chain Challenge. I always look forward to these exchanges. Because so few of us engage in the actual mailing of cards, it's very special to send out a card and to receive a card. I hope more of you will participate in the Card Chain Challenge.
