Birthday Wishes – Slimline Center Step Card
I must admit the whole “slimline card craze” has me a bit intimidated as there is so much card to decorate, but this step card design allowed me to focus on an area closer to the size with which I am used to working. (The center area is 6 x 4 inches.) Baby steps – lol!
The “Birthday Wishes” die is a Die-namics die from My Favorite Things. I also used the “Star Blast Edgelits” die from Stampin’ Up (retired?).
The striped paper is from a digital paper file by TheMockupLoft that I purchased on Etsy. The teal patterned paper is American Crafts (#320388). I also used Recollections heavy weight black, white, and Tranquil Teal from Gina K Designs.
Here is the template for creating my card base:
Start with an 8 1/2 x 8 inch panel.
The finished card is 8 1/2″ x 4″ that folds flat for mailing. It fits in a standard business envelope. (If you wish to create your own envelope with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, start with a 10 1/8 inch square, and make your first punch/score line at 3 1/2 inches.)
That wasn’t so scary after all!!
Thanks for checking out my card project!
