Hello everyone!! I am back today sharing MINI-Slimline card featuring Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Wine Glass and Let’s Get Lit stamps along with gorgeous foil paper from Rinea! The design teams from Crackerbox and Suzy and Rinea are collaborating all month long with fun projects! Be sure to scroll through the blog for more inspirations
Now back to the card…Have you heard of Mini-Slimline cards? Essentially they are a 3×6 card, which is great for using up those 6×6 paper pads we all hoard! I took it one step further and made a gate fold version with a belly band. SO FUN!! To make a gate fold you take a 6×6 base and score at 1.5″ and again at 4.5″. Easy peasy!!
To decorate the card panel, I used the Wine Glass stamp and Rinea’s Ghost Ink 2.0 on red foil paper. The ink is magical and “lifts off” the color of the foil so it looks etched into the paper! So cool! after I stamped the paper and it dried, I cut it into 2 panels to mat onto my gate fold flaps. A belly band finished off the card to help keep it closed. I found an awesome trick for making cute stitched belly bands!! Check out THIS die set from Trinity Stamps–the strips are perfect for belly bands and can be stacked too for a matted look!
BONUS!! I actually decorated the inside of the card too!! *Gasp* I rarely do this for some reason, but the dark green cardstock base was going to need a lighter piece inside to write on, so I grabbed some red ink and stamped a partial wine glass on my insert. The Merry Christmas sentiment from the Sign and Words 4 piece set was the perfect fit too! I love how it “finishes off” the card.
