Woo-hoo – we love slimline, we love fast, we love simple and we LOVE when they all come together for a slimline quick and easy thank you card! And this one shared by our designer Jamie, has a fun easy way to add some real dimension with just a few bits of die cutting.
Before we get started, have you jumped on the slimline card bandwagon yet? If you haven’t you really should – it’s a huge trend and people are absolutely loving the extra space to be creative on their projects. Now, not to toot our own horns but our big slimline release that was launched in July SOLD OUT in two days! We honestly did not anticipate that level of interest in them because slimline cards were just starting to get popular. Apparently our inside cuts/outside cut combinations were just what people wanted and people went bananas! We just got most of them back in stock, so be sure to head over to the shop to to stock up! With our awesome Black Friday sale packed with deals and discounts, you can afford to treat yourself!
OK – back to today’s gorgeous card where Jamie uses the Slimline Solid Postage Die along with the new Field of Daisies Stamp Set and coordinating Die Set.
First, Jamie cut her panel with that SUPER popular Slimline Postage Die from white card stock and stamped both the large and small daisies in the center of the card. She used our gorgeous, rich vibrant Color Fuse inks in sets 1, 2, 3 and 11. PRO TIP: Jamie stamped the small daisy partially off the panel deliberately – this created “movement” on a project which makes it really pop!
Then, Jamie used the coordinating Field of Daisies Die Set to cut out both flowers and her leaves. Once her die cutting was done, she adhered the panel to a green layer the same size as her card base.
To keep that feeling of movement, Jamie randomly stamped some dots over white panel with Citrus and Juniper inks. Then she added her flowers and leaves back to the card using foam tape to place them inside their die cut openings. This technique of lifting specific images adds depth and a bit of an outline to the images from the panel peeking through.
Wow – SO pretty and yet pretty easy to make. And you can use any of your favorite flowers, colors and sentiment combinations. Use this quick and easy thank you card as a jumping off point for your OWN inspiration!
