Hi and welcome! If you love bright, happy and spring color, you're in for a treat today! Nancy here and I've been playing with Poppystamps' newest release. Oh my, Spring Bliss!
Have you created a slimline card yet? I'll share a secret with you, this is my first. Couldn't resist Poppy's new Leafy Vines Slim Plate. It packs a wow on a slim line card! Here's a quick and easy 'how to' for you.
Here's a photo of measurements that will get you the base for a slim line card. 8" x 8 3/4", fold down the middle, and the beautiful Leafy Vines Slim Plate fits perfectly on the card's front, with a nice edged frame too.
Then the fun begins! Pale Eastery pastel? Monotone single color? Or Bright no holds barred wake up color! Just had to celebrate the season's change with a bold punch of color for this card!
My card's a slimline shaker with the new Farm Fresh Eggs cut from Glitter Card Stock moving around inside. I threw in some spring sequins too.
Pretty much an afternoon of decorating bliss on the front of a card! The slim lines fit easily in a business size envelope, or you can find colors online on Amazon and many hobby stores too.
Hope you're inspired to try a slimline. Be sure to check out the Poppystamps' store for all the newest stamps and dies. And a big shoutout to our sister stores, Memory Box and Birch Press for their latest. New paper packs that will thrill! Hugs, all!
