Hi! Hope you are all having a lovely weekend!
Today I am back with 3 slimline cards sharing ideas on how to work on this type of cards with placement and design ideas. All my cards today are 3″ 1/2 x 8″ 1/5. For all my cards examples I am featuring new products from the latest My Favorite Things collection. I tried to pick my top 3 stamps to use today, which was a super difficult thing to do as every month they have such adorable stamp sets.

Slimline card idea 1
Repeat the same element along the card to create a portrait card. Just stick everything down by leaving some space for your sentiment. Here I used the same butterfly, but you can go with other elements such as flowers, hearts, birds, cupcakes….
Tip: Always use an odd number of elements… go for 3 or even 5 if they are smaller.

Look in your stamp sets for long stamps that can cover a bigger area, and go for a vertical or horizontal card design accordingly. Here I used a plane and extended the design with a banner to make it even longer. Think of stacks of cups and long neck giraffes for a vertical card… a train or a car on a road for horizontal ones! Extend your designs to cover up bigger real estate on your card by adding filler images… I have clouds here…. add flowers or trees in a little scene, or even a few gems to add some interest.

Create scenes with critters! A slimeline card is the perfect size for critter scenes and I am sure you all have stamp sets like there!
Just ink up the sky, add some grass and arrange your images! Super fun and super adorable!
