Two Styles of Slimline Cards | Ivana Camdzic

Happy happy day, Lovelies! 

Today's post is all about slimline cards, featuring some of the new Slim Cuts collection, which just went live yesterday! The release hop is still going strong, and you can still win the entire collection and heaps of gift cards - just head over here to get started. If you already have these cuties on their way to you, I hope these ideas will inspire :)

For today's projects, I'm sharing my two favorite dimensions of slimline cards. One that would be considered more traditional - the super elongated card, which coordinates perfectly with the 3 5/8 x 8 5/8 dies of the slimline release. And the other - a shorter version - which I tend to gravitate towards often. 

First up, my shorter version, which is slightly longer than a standard card. I love this technique because it allows the background and focal point to to shine, and still provides enough space for some added accents or sentiments below. The dimensions I use are 4 x 7, but you can easily tailor this if you want to ensure your card will fit inside a specific envelope.

Here, I stamped up the Enchanted Blooms background, and watercolored the florals using my waterbrush +  Pinkfresh ink cubes in Rise and Shine, Over the Hills, Garden Stroll, Indian Summer, Heartbeat, and Fairy Dust.

I added small blooms from the Partial Cut Bouquet die, snipping the individual petals to give the card a bit of dimension.

For my next card, I focused on the taller dimensions - 3 5/8 x 8 5/8 - which is a perfect match for the slimline die release showcased yesterday. I've paired three of the sets here - the Slim Stitched Scallop Circles Panel with the Slim Edgers for the white base, and I also used the Slim Lacy Edgers to add a little excitement to the sides of the card :) 

I used gorgeous Pinkfresh hues to ink blend the base, and added mini Leafy Wreaths, accented by some left-over blooms from the Partial-Cut Bouquet cuts.

If you're new to the slimline world, I hope these cards inspire you to give new card dimensions a whirl!
