I have decided it is slim line card week this week! Last night we made a slim line card for Mystery Stamping. Here is the sketch for that card. The finished size is 9 1/4" x 3 3/4" and it will fit in a standard #10 business envelope. While the shape is little different, slim line cards can be quick and easy! So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Cutting Dimensions: Cardstock (card base): 7 ½ x 9 ¼”, scored at 3 ¾” Light-colored coordinating cardstock: 3 ½” x 5 ¾” White or Vanilla cardstock: 2 ¾” x 2 ¾” Patterned Paper: 3 ½” x 3 ¼”
The cards have an image stamped on the lower left as well as a focal point image at the top of the card. The greeting is also stamped directly on the light colored cardstock on the bottom half of the card.
My first card uses the Merry Moose stamp set and Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper. I stamped the outline of the moose with Soft Suede ink and then the inside with Crumb Cake ink. Then I punched it out using the moose punch and added it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
My second card uses the To a Wild Rose stamp set and the Magic in this Night Designer Series Paper. This DSP is designed primarily for Halloween, but I love some of the black prints. Here, it really makes the Magenta Madness pop. I stamped the "Blessed" with Magenta Madness ink on Whisper White cardstock and then fussy cut it and added it with Stampin' Dimensionals on an angle. Finally, because every card needs a little bling, I added some basic rhinestones.
My final card uses the Snowflake Wishes stamp set and the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper from the 2020 August-December Mini Catalog. I pulled the colors from the DSP: Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, and Pacific Point. For the bling, I added some of the Blue Adhesive-Backed Gems.
