I attended the “Creativate Winter 2021” online stamp retreat last weekend with a few of my favorite Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. This is their third one, and my second participation. It’s held all day Saturday on Facebook live which makes for a long, but very creative day! I come away with so many creative ideas and techniques that it’s well worth giving up my Saturday. I can’t wait for the next one sometime in the Spring.
Jackie Bolhuis demonstrated a slimline card for us. I’d never done this size card before because I wasn’t sure how to mail it. I don’t particularly like making my own envelopes, but Jackie said she always uses a regular business envelope and just stamps the outside to match the card.
So I gave it a try and here’s my slimline card in between the sessions. I used different dimensions for the top piece and love how it turned out. I still need to make the envelope (those are downstairs and I haven’t grabbed one yet – LOL).
I was so pleased with my results that I will be creating more slimline cards. I am sending this card to a dear friend who’s birthday is coming up soon.
Here’s what I used for this card.
Hugs to all of you and happy stamping!
