"Love of Leaves" Slim Line Card with Rock & Roll Technique!


Hi Friends! Well, I've finally jumped onto the 'slim line' bandwagon and given these cards a try. "Slim line" cards are really popular right now and I must admit, it was a nice change from our standard card size. 





I created two slimline cards in my video demonstration - one portrait and one landscape. The featured stamps were (once again) the "Love of Leaves" set and I also show the 'Rock & Roll" technique, with my favourite twist!




Measurements:
  • Crumb Cake card base: 7" x 8 3/4", score at 3 1/2"
  • Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper: 3 1/4" x 8 1/2"
  • Blackberry Bliss card stock: 5 1/2" x 2 1/2"
  • Very Vanilla card stock: 4 1/2" x 2 1/4"
  • Crumb Cake card stock: 4 1/4" x 2"
  • Very Vanilla card stock (inside): 3 1/4" x 8 1/2"
I hope you enjoy today's video!
