Today I am very excited to be sharing an awesome new slimline die from Whimsy Stamps called Slimline Stars Background Die. I am already so in love with this fun die and my brain is just swirling with ideas! I have made my card into a birthday theme by combining it with the Birthday Slimline Scallop dies, but if you scroll until the end of today's post, you can also see a variety of other ideas using this same Slimline Star background die from my fellow design team members. I always find it so neat to say how multiple people use the same product!
*A full list of supplies is located at the end of this post.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2" x 3 1/2". Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of this card is made from Neenah Solar White smooth cardstock. I die cut the Slimline Star frame from black cardstock and placed an 8" x 3" piece of gold glitter paper behind the frame before adhering both to the card base. I die cut the candles multiple times from Melon Mambo cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, white cardstock and gold glitter cardstock before layering them all together in the center of the card. For the sentiment, I die cut the shadow layer of the word "celebrate" from Melon Mambo cardstock and the skinny top layer from white cardstock. I adhered both layers of the word together using a fine glue pen and and adhered the entire word itself to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimension.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the card I created using the new Slimline Stars background die. Here are more samples using this same die from the Whimsy Stamps Design Team to help inspire you!
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
