Slimline cards have become popular, are easy to make, and fit in a legal sized envelope, 9 1/2″ X 4 1/8″.
I began with Silver Slate Cardstock, 9″ X 8″, folded at 4″, layered with In Good Taste Designer Paper, 1/8″ smaller. This paper adds lots of brushstroke texture without any effort. Don’t you love it? There’s a wonderful variety of In Good Taste paper that you can see in my Product List below.
With challenge colors in mind, I used Blending Brushes to color Whisper White Cardstock with Balmy Blue Ink and Highland Heather Ink. The Blending Brushes are a new item in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, and will be available January 5th. I chose this coloring method over cardstock, because of the softer look.
Next, I used a Wreath Builder Die to cut one circle of leaves from Balmy Blue, and one from Silver Foil. Another die was used to cut five sprigs from Highland Heather.
“Joy” is from the soon-to-retire Peace & Joy Bundle, which I created using Smoky Slate Cardstock and some Foam Adhesive Sheet for dimension.
“To you and yours” is from the Peace & Joy Stamp Set, stamped in Smoky Slate Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock. It was easily cut by hand along the straight lines, and raised on Mini Dimensionals.
The last detail was adding a few Woven Threads Sequins.
