2 Hot Topics in the Stamping World
Two trending topics in the stamping and cardmaking world are Slimline Cards and the new Curvy Celebrations products from Stampin' Up!. So today I will share both how to make Slimline Cards and a Sneak Peek of the Curvy Celebrations products that will be available starting November 3. See Curvy Celebrations Flyer Here.
Let's see what all the chatter is about!
What's the BIG Deal About Slimline Cards?
Slimline Card fit nicely in standard #9 or #10 envelopes that are readily available in almost any store.
You can fit more design elements on a Slimline card.
Do you find yourself bored with the standard size card? Try a Slimline Card. This tall narrow card is a refreshing change of pace. Of course, there's also the option of making Slimline Cards on a smaller scale, but we will talk about that another day.
Slimline Card Measurements
Cut Card Base 8-1/2" x 7-1/2". Note 8-1/2" is the height of the card. Score at 3-3/4".
After cutting your card base from an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of card stock, you will have a piece leftover that works nicely for a front panel. I trimmed mine to 8" x 3-1/4". Then I dry embossed the front panel with my Subtle Embossing Folder for just a hint of texture.
Notice the two different options that I used for my leaves border. The leaves can be stamped and then colored or they can be stamped directly on colored card stock. Both options are pretty. I used Just Jade card stock and Just Jade Stampin' Blends for today's cards.
Have a fabulous day,
