Hi everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week! How’s the weather where you are? It’s still a bit chilly here and we still have snow on the ground, which we love! I mentioned last week that I was invited to guest for Just Us Girls Challenge, and I’m thrilled to share my project for Trend Week #571 – Slimline Card. I’ve jumped on the slimline card wagon too, along with everyone else, so this was a card I enjoyed creating!
My card has gold glitter washi tape and skinny washi tape striped elements, and features stamped and die cut coffee cups on the front with a gift card holder on the inside. Perfect for that coffee-loving friend with a birthday – or some other reason to celebrate! My slimline cards are 9″ x 3-3/4″ because this slightly larger size fits better in a #10 envelope.
I cut the card base from navy blue cardstock along with three stitched oval die cuts and the alphabet letters to spell COFFEE. I cut front and inside layering panels from sand cardstock and rounded the bottom corners of the navy card base and the sand layers. I stamped four coffee cups in navy blue ink which I cut with the coordinating die. I arranged three sets of washi tape stripes horizontally across the front panel and adhered it to the card base. I adhered the stitched ovals to the panel and then the coffee cups with the letters.
I embellished the inside panel with a single set of vertical washi tape stripes and adhered it to the inside of the card base. I created a navy blue gift card envelope with my WRMK Envelope Punch Board and adhered a die cut sentiment. I then adhered the remaining die cut coffee cup and gift card envelope to the panel, leaving plenty of room for a signature.
And one more look… so pleased with how this turned out! I CASE’d my own design that I created for the Prickley Pear Stamps Hochanda showcase back in late October, but this one is slightly different.
