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.
