Crafter’s Companion 2022 Advent Calendar door 9 slimline

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

Today I made a slimline card with the contents of door 9. It all came out in the end, but this card was a bit of a challenge and you will even see me pull part of it apart and throw it away. Once I thought about that went wrong it was an easy fix and I continued to the end. I strongly advise to watch the video before using the written directions below. This card has an angle to it that is easy to cut once you see it.
