Slimline Cards - September 2021 Cards, Tags, & More Kit
Hey, all! Welcome back to the Tres Jolie Blog!
This week I’m bring you some slimline cards I made using the September Cards, Tags, & More Kit plus some items from my stash—most are from previous Tres Jolie Kits! (Tres Jolie Kits are a great way to add to your stash!) Check out my video to see how I did these slimlines!
Slimline's are (were? LOL) originally intended to be created to fit in a standard (No. 10) letter envelope. All of my slimlines this week would easily fit into that size, although in the U.S. if the weight is over 1oz, or if the item is particularly rigid, postage beyond a single stamp may be necessary. If in doubt, go to your local post office and ask! Check out my photos below of each individual card:
“Congratulations”: Layered doily die cuts over the negative cuts in the background paper, on top of my mixed media layer with clear beads circling the solid center of the doily from the Buttons Galore cube in the kit.
“Hello!”: Since I had done my mixed media layers all at once, this card was really very quick to finish up. I added my papers, then realized it needed some of the stencil butter on it, spread that on and set if off to the side to dry. Once dry I added my doily with the “Hello!” stamped directly on it and finished it off with three clear sequins.
“Thinking of You”: This one is super simple assembly! I just added some of the patterned paper on top of my mixed media background and some thin strips that I had left over from my ATC project (Sept. 2nd video); I tucked in a few of the fussy cut flowers under the sentiment and added some sequins!
“With Love”: Once again I needed to add some of the stencil butter so I just randomly stenciled it on in three random area. I fussy cut the banner & sentiment out after they were embossed, stuck it down, and added some light pink sequins to the areas of stencil butter.
“You’re Amazing”: Again I needed to add some of the stencil butter since I hadn’t added any to the mixed media background I used, so I tried very carefully to keep it at the center of the doilies. Unfortunately I only thought of the stencil butter after I had attached to doilies to the card, so it was a little difficult! I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment, tucked in some of the fussy cut flowers, and made three groups of the sequins.
