Welcome to the Color Fusers January 2022 Blog Hop where I am sharing a sneak peek of the Slim Sayings bundle, which is the perfect bundle to create amazing slim line style cards. This bundle is from the new January – June 2022 Mini Catalog which launches tomorrow. The dies are versatile, and can be used multiple ways. It worked perfectly to showcase the January color challenge.
It is always an exciting time welcoming a new catalog, and all the amazing new products it brings. Today’s card showcases not only the super cool Slim Sayings stamp and die bundle, but new twine. If you know me, you know I love twine! The Fan Baker’s Twine pack brings us three new spools of twine to create with!
Slim Card Background Fun
The Slim Card Dies is a set of 4 dies, including 2 very large layering dies, and 2 beautiful edge dies. What I love most about these dies is how they provide endless possibilities to be creative with fun backgrounds. This card has such a simple clean feel, and I love it! And it’s an impressive card – this guy measures 8 1/4″ x 3 3/4″!
This colorful chevron background is made with one of the layering background dies. It is so easy! And while creating this card, I had multiple pieces left over to make many more cards. The icing on the cake for this bundle is the large bold sentiments from the Slim Sayings stamp set. They are the perfect size to balance the large scale of these cards.
To create this card:
- cut a 7 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Night of Navy card base, score at 3 3/4″ on short side
- use a 3 1/4″ x 8 1/4″ Night of Navy mat layer
- cut a 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Night of Navy layer to die cut front
- multiple pieces of 3 1/2″ x 5″ cardstock for die cutting
Fold card base on score line and burnish well with bone folder. Die cut Night of Navy cardstock with Slim Card die. Adhere frame to Night of Navy mat. Die cut chevron pieces from multiple colors of cardstock. Inlay pieces into background frame and adhere in place. Stamp sentiment on Blushing Bride cardstock in Night of Navy ink. Layer onto Night of Navy and Mint Macaron cardstock. Adhere onto card front with dimensionals. Tie a Night of Navy twine bow and adhere to sentiment. Embellish with navy rhinestones. To stamp inside, place a Basic White layer inside and stamp sentiment in Night of Navy ink.
