Elephant Parade Slimline - Floating in the Cloud Birthday Card


Elephant Parade
I have to admit that I really like the look of a slimline card. They are so easy to make - all you need is a piece of cardstock cut at 8.5" x 7" and score in half at 3.5".

I layered basic white that I ink blended to make the clouds (Highland Heather & Tahitian Tide) using the Basic Border dies. the elephant, mouse, balloons, butterflies all come from the Elephant Parade stamp/die bundle

For some additional dimension, I punched to clouds from basic white cardstock and ink blended them as well with the same colors as the cloud background and used dimensionals to pop them up on the card.

The sentiment is a new stamp/die bundle as well. The dies do the "fussy cutting" of the sentiment for you - LOVE THIS! The bundle is Charming Sentiments - a MUST HAVE!

The butterflies and balloons were colored with new 2022 - 2024 in colors - Parakeet Party, Orchid Oasis & Tahitian Tide.

If you haven't tried your hand at a slimline card you should give it a go!

Happy Stamping!
