Slim Line Cards bring me back to the 70’s Yes, in the 70’s thy were common place. My graduation cards from 1976 were mostly slim line cards. I think it is funny how over the years come and go, every thing old is new again.
The basic slim line card base is a 8-1/2 inch by 7 inches. Scored/folded at 3-1/2 inches.
In the red/white/blue base above, the Red is 8-1/2″ by 7″ scored at 3-1/2″. The White mat is sized done to 8-1/4″ by 3-1/4″. The Blue mat is 8″ by 3″. Ok now what do I do to make it a fun 4th of July card.
My favorite dies are the above…so I used them in this card.
than as it looks open up, tent fold
I used a piece of basic white 3″ by 3″ to make the center. Added a strip of 1″ by 3″ Red which is Cherry Cobbler to top and bottom. I die cut the letters U-S-A out of Midnight Navy.
I hope you enjoyed my card and you can use the design in other colors for Birthdays or use with Hi or Hello!

I love this set, create beautiful cards, book marks and any paper crafter ‘s dream. I use it for get well soon cards, sympathy, birthday and just hello. The card shown is just 8-1/2 by 11 card stock, cut in half the long way, cut at 4-1/4 inches. This makes it 11 inches long by 4-1/4 inches wide. Score at 5-1/2 inches, fold in half. I next stamped the leaves on a piece of basic white…note, whisper white has a new name
I used cherry cobbler ink on whisper white and stamped Tulip heads, punched out with punch, Tulip Builder punch.
Yes, it is retiring, which means, no longer available…. Oh, how I will miss this lovely set. Great for guy cards, sympathy cards and just Thinking of You. The set and dies came in 2018, now they are retiring. Don’t miss out.
Love the springs and the leaves, can use with so many other sets….plus the leaves can be die cut using the dies. The wood slice was fussy cutted and edged with a darker color.
The mighty Oak, beautiful, simple….can you say Simple Stamping…. the thanks die cut is from a word set, that is now sold out, no longer can be ordered. This is why I say, if interested, order as soon as you can ASAP.
I just saw my all time favorite stamp set, Healing Hugs, is now sold out…. No longer being made, now a collectors item…
