Hi friends, I am loving the new slimline card trend. I am having too much fun with it and today I have a fun fold (pun intended) card in slimline size for you :-)
Yes, I do have detailed steps for you and supplies list too. Read on…
- Spellbinders Large Die of the Month November 2020
- Dark blue and white cardstock (linked below)
- Create the card base:
- Cut a piece of white cardstock that is 3.5 inches x 8.5 inches.
- Cut a piece of blue cardstock that is 3.5 inches x 11 inches. My cardstock was 12×12 so I just used the whole 12 inches, but I did need to trim it at both ends later.
- Die cutting for the top blue panel:
- Arrange the white and blue stripes side by side so that their centers are aligned.
- Tape the longer die slightly towards the bottom along with the border cutting die. Die cut it out to separate the two pieces.
- Fold each piece over the back of the white part to mark where the next die cutting should go.
- On the bottom part align just the longer intricate die (without the border die) and cut it out.
- On the top part repeat this twice to create a detailed design.
- Create the snowflake embellishment:
- Die cut the snowflake (detailed die as well as the outer border) using white glitter cardstock.
- Cut out only the outer snowflake border using gold glitter cardstock.
- Add stitching details with matching blue thread on the white snowflake.
- Foam mount this on the gold die cut.
- On a red cardstock, heat emboss the sentiment “Joy to the world”. I used a red leftover stripe from my stash. The sentiment is from Spellbinders Charming Tag Sentiments set. For heat embossing I used Simon Says Stamp White Fine Detail embossing powder and Simon Says Stamp Clear embossing ink.
- Using strong adhesive like scor tape attach the two pieces of blue to the white cardbase.
- Foam mount the snowflake on the blue front and adhere sentiment on top.
Hope you like this card and the fun fold + slimline card idea. Do give it a try and let me know what you think.
