NEW Exclusive Slimline Dies!

Are you loving the slimline card making trend that's all the rage right now but can't find any dies for them? Well I have your answer because Whimsy Stamps is the first company to release 3 NEW Slimline dies made exclusively for slimline card making! 
I can't tell you how excited I am about these innovative new dies, they have really refreshed my card making and I can't stop making slimline cards with them-lol.
 Here's my first project using the Slimline Postage die...


If you're not familiar with the slimline card size here's how I make mine...
I start with an 8.5 x 11 piece of card stock and cut it down to 8.5 x 7 then fold that in half to create a 8.5 x 3.5 card base. You will have a left over piece that is 8.5 x 4 which is a perfectly sized piece to cut out your slimline die - it's brilliant!  


For this card I actually didn't use the left over piece though, I decided to cut a black Slimline postage frame instead. 


I stamped the Penguin Poop penguins on white card stock, colored them with Copic markers
and adhered to each of the Slimline Postage openings. I could have (and should have) cut out the die from white card stock and stamped the penguins on those 4 postage pieces but I had my "practice coloring" done and thought it looked okay so I just went ahead and used those. Oh well, I guess I just have to make another slimline card now...twist my arm - ha!

  
Once I had my penguins placed behind the frame openings I simply added it to my slimline card front and called it done. Oh wait, I did also color and cut out the balloon and popped it up on foam tape and drew the string with a marker.


You can find all three Slimline dies from Whimsy Stamps and open a whole new, fresh and fun door to your card making. 
Oh and BTW, this size card will fit inside a legal sized envelope with a little bit of room left over so there's no need to find special sized envelopes either...easy peasy :).
Have a great day.
