Welcome to the Thursday Challenge by Create with Connie & Mary. Today we have a color challenge for which I have made a slimline card. It is quick and easy with a fun new look.
The Color Challenge:
The Slimline Card:
Have you ever heard that the coordination of Stampin’ Up! products is a benefit of using their products? My card drives that message home today as I have used three stamp sets and an embossing folder to make this unique card: Crane of Fortune for the flowers and leaves, On The Horizon for the sentiment, and Slim Sayings inside the card. In my opinion, the three colors in the challenge are a beautiful combination.
I love the bold font of this Happy Birthday stamp from Slim Sayings. There is plenty of room to write a personal message inside. Did you know that we now sell Slimline Envelopes? Yes! The envelopes come in Soft Succulent, White, and Smoky Slate on page 53 of the 2022 January-June mini catalog.
A Close-up Look:
In this photo, you can see the splatter embossing on the Soft Succulent cardstock, which is one of two 3″ 3D embossing folders in the Stripes and Splatters duo. Finally, I added three Brushed Brass Butterflies as the finishing touch and additional gold bling. If you have not gotten any of these yet, you want to add them to your wish list. They are the right size and are very lightweight and flat, making mailing the card easy.
I hope I have inspired you to order the Slimline Envelopes and try your hand at making a slimline card. The card base measures 8 1/2″ x 7″, scored and folded at 3 1/2″.
