Hi friends! It’s Hump Day and it’s Day 3 of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop and I’ve popped in this morning with fun cat-themed mini slim thank you card!

I’ve been on a mini slimline kick lately so I created a CAS thank you card in a gray and white color combo featuring a pretty Siamese-looking kitty. I actually got a set of mini slimline layers dies a couple weeks ago but didn’t use them for this card because I rounded the bottom right corner and I just didn’t want to do that with die layers. The 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slim size is legal to mail at the post office whereas the 3″ x 6″ mini slim size is not, so I’ve been making my card bases the slightly larger width and the layer dies are not as readily found as the 3″ x 6″ size which makes no sense to me. Whoever started the 3″ x 6″ size mini slim trend didn’t do their homework, lol!
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ side-folding mini slimline card base and layering panel from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock along with a layering panel from CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock and strip from Hot Off The Press light gray gingham paper, rounding the bottom right corner of the card base and layering panels. I stamped the cat image and sentiment in light gray ink and colored the cat with a lighter gray alcohol marker. I adhered a layered strip across the top of the white panel and added gray enamel dots.
I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from CutCardStock Basis Gray cardstock and light gray gingham paper, added a CRAFTplorations Just Thank You Clear Sticker sentiment and layered the panel on the gray cardstock.
And one more peek… such an adorable kitty thank you! Love the clean and simple!
