I’m ready to shake off the old and kick off this new year with positivity and creativity! I hope you’ll join me in the challenge of sharing more joy this year.

The new January-June Mini Catalog is packed with just what you need to kick start your creative projects. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, you’ll want to make a point to see some of the exciting new goodies.

I’m so giddy about the new Slim Sayings Bundle, that I just had to use it for this month’s tutorial. I think you’ll love this fresh card style, too!

Slim Sayings Sweet Talk Card

Sometimes all we need for a fresh perspective is to step out of the usual. In this case, it’s a fun, new card shape! The popular slimline cards have a long, narrow design that is perfectly accented by the new Slim Card Dies. You’ll love how a new card shape sparks your imagination.

This tutorial features the Slim Sayings Bundle (#157966) and the Sweet Talk 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper (#157616) to make a sweet card for a fabulous friend!

Project - Step 1
1. Add Adhesive Sheet
Cut Real Red cardstock and Adhesive Sheet to 3-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Peel backing off of Adhesive Sheet, line up and adhere to the back of the cardstock.
Project - Step 2
2. Slim Die Cut
Center die-cut on cardstock and run through Stampin’ Cut & Emboss. Pop the die-cut pieces from the die. Set aside the negative pieces to use on the inside of the card and on other projects.
Project - Step 3
3. Adhere Die Cut
Cut Sweet Talk Paper to 3-1/4″ x 8-1/4″. Peel adhesive backing off of slim die-cut and carefully line up on the Sweet Talk paper and adhere. Start with lining up the bottom corners and then the top corners.
Project - Step 4
4. Die Cut Scallop Edge
Pick a gray or white Slimline Envelope (#157981). Cut Sweet Talk paper to 3-1/2″ x 3″. Mark the center of the 3-1/2″ side and the center of the scalloped die (matches envelope flap) from the Slim Card Dies. Line up centers and die cut.
Project - Step 5
5. Customize Envelope Flap
Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the die-cut paper inside the envelope flap so it matches the card. You’ll Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or Stampin’ SEAL+ to adhere your envelope flap closed when ready to mail. Note: This end-opening envelope may require additional postage. Check before mailing.
Project - Step 6
6. Cut Card Base
Cut Gorgeous Grape cardstock to 7″ x 8-1/2″. Score at 3-1/2″ along the 7″ side to make the slimline card base. Adhere 3-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ Basic White cardstock inside the card. Add two of the negative die cut strips inside the card as accents.
Project - Step 7
7. Layer Card Front
Adhere the layered slim die-cut and Sweet Talk to the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals if you want extra dimension.
