I was so excited when I first saw the Slim Sayings Bundle in the Stampin’ Up!® 2022 January – June Mini Catalog. This bundle includes a stamp set called Slim Sayings (which has six different large sentiments) and coordinating dies called Slim Card Dies. These dies are such fun because they cut our different backgrounds for your cards. Slimline cards have been really popular lately. I have actually made a few that I in the past but having sentiments and dies to go with them is great fun. Slimline cards can be different sizes. The products Stampin’ Up!® are made for a 3.5″ x 8.5″ card. Some slimline cards are 3″ x 6″. It doesn’t really matter what size you like because both are fun. I even used the Slim Sayings stamp set on this card which is an A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) card.
To make this card I first stamped the sentiment on a piece of Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper using Misty Moonlight ink. This paper is one of the Sale-a-bration products you can get for free with a qualifying order. I cut it out using a die from the set called Tailor Made. Then I stamped it again on another piece of this Designer Series Paper and just cut out the word “one” using a smaller Tailor Made die. Then I cut two pieces of 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon Combo in Misty Moonlight and attached one to the top of each tag. I took a piece of White Baker’s Twine (Baker’s Twine Essentials Pack) and tied a bow around both of them. Then I glued the smaller one over the larger tag. It lined up perfectly.
Next I took a third piece of the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper and cut out a rectangle using the Stitched Rectangles die set. Then I ran this piece of DSP through my Cut ‘N Emboss Machine using the new Gingham embossing folder. It is a little hard to see in the photo but it added a lot of dimension to the paper. I layered this on a Misty Moonlight card base and attached the tags using Dimensionals.
If you order the Slim Saying bundle during the month of February you can get the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Series Paper for free! This paper pack has 48 sheets of 6″ x 6″ patterned paper.
