Hi crafty friends,
I’ve got a fun new card to share with you today. If you’re a cardmaker I’m sure you’ve heard of the Slim Line Card trend, but have you heard of Mini Slim Line cards? These are such a fun and unexpected size, not too small and not too large. Make sure you keep reading to get the card measurements.
Mini Slim Line cards fit into a regular Check sized envelope that you can find at your local Walmart, dollar store and in some large grocery stores. Here’s an example of the box with the envelope size printed on the box. (For the record, I didn’t tear the box open in such a messy way.)
I used the Dragonfly Garden bundle which includes the stamp set and the punch at a 10% discount when purchased as a bundle, but they are available for purchase separately. I used the Dragonfly punch to punch out the small dragonflies from the coordinating Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP). Each package contains 4 sheets (out of 48 sheets) that have colorful dragonflies printed on the sheets that fit perfectly into the punch. See the small dragonflies on my card? I punched those out with the Dragonfly Punch. The beautiful and dramatic Flower & Fields DSP is one of the FREE Sale-a-bration items with a minimum $50* purch ase from any current catalog. The Flower & Field DSP contains a beautiful package of 12 12″ X 12″ DSP with flowers on one side and subtle patterns on the backside. I chose one of the floral patterns as one of the layers. Easy card making when all the supplies coordinate!
