If you know me, you know I love a challenge.  Back several years ago, I would spend every morning doing the challenges on Splitcoaststampers.  I slept worse then than I do now, which is horrible.  And quite honestly, back then I thrived on comments.  My self-esteem is not nearly as fragile now. 🙂

This week, the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store design team has been challenged to make a slimline card.  These tall/skinny/long cards are meant to fit in a #9 envelope.  My card is 8.5″ x 3.5″.


My first thought was that it was a lot of ‘landscape’ to cover.  I went back and looked at the only other slimline card I made (June 2007).  I actually inspired myself! Ha!


I did a lot of cutting on this.  It was worth it, though!


I used:

Stamp Simply Clear Stamps – Fruit
Stamp Simply Clear Stamps – Fruit of the Spirit
Prima 6×6 – Fruit Paradise
Spectrum Noir Ultrasmooth Premium White cardstock
Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink
Enamel Dots
Baker’s Twine – pink/white
1/4″ ScorTape
Thermaweb 3d 1/4″ foam squares

Pink cardstock

8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″

(Fits in a #9 envelope)


I finished off the inside with a verse.  Lots of room for a personal message.


Thanks for stopping by!

    What a beautiful card, Holly! I love the pretty pink gingham and the fun way you stacked your fruit. The enamel dots and baker’s twine are the perfect finish!!
