How to Make Slimline Cards

In today’s post, I’ll be sharing two slimline cards. The first one was made for the January 2022 Simple Suite Stamper’s Tutorial bundle.

The theme for this month’s tutorial bundle is any project made with the Pattern Party designer paper in a birthday theme. For my slimline cards, I’ve used one of the super subtle black and white prints. This amazing paper pack includes all black and white patterns on one side and bold, beautiful, colorful prints on the second side. I just love this designer paper! I’ll include a photo of this DSP later in this post.

Today's Slimline Cards feature the Slim Sayings Bundle. The first one is part of the Jan. 2022 Simple Suite Stamper's Tutorial Bundle.

My project is made with the Slim Says Bundle which includes new products from the January to June 2022 mini-catalog. This bundle comes with the Slim Sayings Stamp Set and Slim Dies shown below.

For my project, I’ve simply die-cut one of the large dies in black cardstock and added some Black Glitter ribbon to some of the diagonal openings. This ribbon fits perfectly in the openings and adds a touch of bling that I love. The color scheme on this card is Pacific Point, Basic Black, and White.

This card is super simple to make with the exception of getting the placement of the ribbon pieces. To get the ribbons positioned just right I used some mini binder clips and glue dots. Watch my video tutorial later in this post for all the details and tips.

For my second card, I wanted to use the other large die in the Slim Dies set. I just love the shapes in this die.

Another one of the subtle patterns in the Pattern Party DSP pack was used for the background. You can purchase this amazing paper pack with host rewards dollars only! Contact me to get your own host code to share with your friends! Plus during Sale-A-Bration hosts can get the gorgeous Calming Camellias Stamp Set as an EXTRA FREE Gift!

The color scheme for this card is Magenta Madness, Basic Black, and White. I’m not generally a pink lover but I’m loving Magenta Madness with black and white! It’s just so vibrant and pretty!!!

The sentiments on both my cards are from the Slim Sayings Stamp Set. For the sentiment backing layers on this card, I’ve used the Picture This dies from the Annual Catalog. Isn’t the alternative pattern of stitching fun!? Plus, I just had to add a couple of rhinestones for some added bling!

Here’s my pair of slimline cards:

Don’t they look so nice together? Plus, now I’ve got one masculine and one feminine style card.

You might also like to know that Stampin’ Up! now has envelopes especially for these slimline cards!

The envelopes come in three colors. I’ve shown the neutral-colored one in the photo below.

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my projects today and are inspired to make your own slimline cards. You’ll find a complete supply list with links to my online store at the end of this post. I have not included dimensions because the Simple Suite Stamper’s Tutorial bundle is exclusive content. Just so you know, I shared some of the key dimensions used for these cards in my video later in this post.

Happy Crafting!

Melissa 🙂
