Welcome to the 200th Cardz 4 Galz challenge!  Amazing!  Our host for #200, Billie A., chose slimline birthday cards as our theme.  When you are finished here, I hope you will pop over to the challenge site to see what the rest of the design team members created.  I thoroughly enjoy watching the projects get posted on the challenge admin site, and I am sure you will be inspired to play along.  Don’t forget to enter your project into our challenge.  I’m that person – the one who creates a card for a challenge and then forgets to post it to the challenge sites.  Not tonight!

At first, I wasn’t sold on the new In Colors for 2023 – 2025, but they are quickly growing on me.  My card for this challenge uses Boho Blue, Copper Clay, the Fresh as a Daisy DSP (designer series paper) and the Fresh as a Daisy Suite Collection (page 110 – 111 in the annual catalog).

Here’s my card

Isn’t the Copper Clay gorgeous with the Boho Blue? Stunning!

Measurements and Such:

  • The Copper Clay base measures 9 by 8 inches, scored at 4 inches.
  • Trim a piece of the Fresh as a Daisy DSP to 4-3/8 by 3-7/8 inches.
  • Crop the daisy pieces and centers from white and Copper Clay cardstock.
  • Stamp the greeting using VersaMark on a scrap of Copper Clay cardstock.
  • Cover the greeting with white embossing powder and heat set.
  • Crop with the banner die from the Cheerful Daisies die set.
  • Wrap a length of white baker’s twine around the DSP 3 times and secure the ends on the back of the DSP using tear-&-tape.
  • Adhere the DSP to the cardstock using multipurpose liquid adhesive.
  • Use white baker’s twine to tie a double bow around the baker’s twine.
  • Add dimensionals to the back of the sentiment and daisies. Make sure you put the dimensionals on the greeting banner so they straddle the baker’s twine.
  • Adhere the daisies and greeting banner to the DSP.
  • Trim a piece of white cardstock to 4-14 by 3-3/4 inches for the inside of the card.
  • Stamp the greeting and adhere the white cardstock to the inside panel.
  • Use a legal size envelope for this slimline card. The ones I have ae 4-1/8 by 9-1/2 inches.
  • That’s it. This card came together pretty quickly because the DSP does all the work.
