Mini Slimline Cards!

Regular sized slimline cards have been super popular in the card-making world, so why not a mini version?

I thought I have a go at playing on a slightly smaller surface & create mini slimline card with a finished size of 6″ x 3.5″ . What I love about this is I can have the fold on the smaller 3.5″ or on the longer 6″ side which makes it super fun.

The first time I tried out this fun size was on World Carmaking Day

You Make My Heart Happy Spring Mini Slimline Card

I loved how it turned out. I even based the layout on a sketch that was for a traditionally sized card. Check out the World Carmaking Day post to see all the details how I put this together.

The next card I want to share uses the Reason for the Season stamp set & I just love how the Wood Grain Paper Packet mixed with the
Lovely Paper Packet creates the perfect stable. The night sky was created with Night Gloss Spray with some Moon Dust Stickles™ Glitter Gel scraped over the top.

This mini slimline card was perfect size to help focus on the stamp set, yet show off the other details.

The next mini slimline card, I decided to cut out a window from the front of it so you can see inside the card.

Gnome for Christmas

I created snow banks using the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts & fussy cut out trees from the Jingle Joy Paper Packet & coloured in my Gnome for Christmas stamps to match the colouring of the papers.

Of courseI have to show the inside.

Gnome For Christmas Inside

These Gnome For Christmas stamps are just so cute on this card.

So for this next card I took the window as a 3 fold card. This turned out to be so fun to create.

Barnyard Fun

When you first open you see the details of the barn, with window shutters & woodgrain & the cute From the Funny Farm animals

And then you open up again to get this cute little scene with the sheep

Really this shows, just because these mini slimline card are a smaller size of 6″ x 3.5″, you can still create a huge variety of designs & creative opportunity.
