Hi Stampers. I’ve been hearing an awful lot about slimline cards lately. Since I had never made one before, I gave it a try. When I looked it up they said there were several sizes of slimline cards. The standard slimline card is 7″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 3-1/2″. I chose to make mine 8-1/2″ x 9″, scored at 4-1/4″ so that it would fit into a business (#10) envelope. (Note: my research said it should be 9-1/2″ instead of 9″, but that wasn’t divisible by six as easily as 9″ was.)
My banner is created out of Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Pacific Point & Gorgeous Grape CS. Each banner was cut to 4-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ each. Because the word I chose was 6 letters long, I divided 9″ divided by 6 and got 1-1/2″. Then, I flagged the end of each strip with the Triple Banner Punch.
Using the Playful Alphabet Dies, I spelled the word “friend” on the banners, one letter per banner. After the letters were cut out, I used liquid glue to adhere them to the slimline card front in varying heights. Once they were all adhered, I used the paper snips to snip off the banner tops flush with the top of the card front. (Note: When cutting, be sure to save the center of the R and the D so you can glue them back in when the banners are on the card.)
Using various Stampin’ Write markers, I inked up the stamp “Happy Birthday” and stamped it onto a 1/2″ strip of Basic White CS. Using paper snips, I flagged the end. The sentiment is adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’m thrilled with how bright and cheery it is.
