Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. With Slimline cards quickly becoming the go to size in card making I thought I would revisit product I already had in my stash originally intended for A2 size cards. I am so happy I did. I used the Holiday Birdhouse, Adventure Edges dies and the Joyful Wishes Sentiment Stamps. Below you will find the steps to create your own It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year! Slimline Card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 7″, score at 3 1/2″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Slimline)
Step 2 – Trim Gold Metallic Cardstock to 3″ x 8″. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges (cloud die) using a scrap piece of Cardstock. Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 2 7/8″ x 7 7/8″. Place the cloud diecut on top of the blank cardstock and using a Blender Brush apply ink to the edges. I used Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass for a soft subtle sky. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Holiday Birdhouse using Gold Metallic Cardstock for the ornament cord and Glitter Cardstock for the ornament lights. Assemble using tweezers and Kid’s Choice Glue. Diecut the rest of the Holiday Birdhouse images using various colors of Cardstock and assemble.
Step 5 – Stamp Joyful Wishes sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the bottom of the card front.
Step 6 – Adhere the ornaments to the top of the card front using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere the birdhouse using Foam Tape.
I hope you will give Slimline cards a try. It can be a little intimidating at first but once you do your first one you will love the real estate this size offers you. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
