Slim Sayings First Play

This is the card I made on this week’s Facebook Live. I also showed off the new products I’ve received from the upcoming January – July 2022 Mini Catalogue and the January – February Sale-A-Bration event. You can watch the video on YouTube or Facebook. I go live on the Nancy’s Nifty Notes Facebook Page Wednesday mornings at 10:00 Australian Eastern Time…you can see what time that is where you are by clicking this link. Note: I may not go live every week over the Christmas-New Year’s period…I’m playing it by ear and being present for my family during this time…keep an eye on my Facebook Page for updates!

Slim Sayings is a brand-new stamp set with large format sentiments, perfect to add to the trendy slimline card dies named (appropriately) Slim Card Dies.

On the video I used my Blending Brushes to add Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron ink to Shimmery White cardstock. After adding some Adhesive Sheets to the back, I cut it out with one of the dies.

After applying the die cut to a Shimmery White card base, I added a few of the cutout pieces back in with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also stamped a sentiment from Slim Sayings in Pool Party, fussy-cut it out, and popped it up, too.

After I ended the video I decided to add a few more to the inside of the card:

I also made a slimline envelope out of long-retired Crumb Cake Envelope Paper and the Envelope Punch Board. I used the measurements for 3 ½” x 8 ½” card, which is 9 ¾” x 9 ¾”, with the first score at 3 ⅛”. Sorry- I don’t have the metric equivalents on my board. The long flaps are too wide for the narrow envelope, so I cut them down using one of the edge dies in the set.

2 envelope notes:

  • The new catalogue does have slimline envelopes in it on p. 53…I overlooked them when placing my preorder.
  • If you want an envelope punch board and live in Australia let me know and I’ll see about sourcing a used one…or wherever you live you can look for the Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers. It works well with DSP, or printer-weight paper (80-100 gsm) in A3 (metric) or Ledger/Tabloid/11″ x 17″ (imperial) size.
