Slimline cards... (we used to call them Tall Cards, back in the day, lol) ...are the hottest thing at the moment, whether you make the "official" size of 3.5 x 8.5" or just a skinny version of an A2, we encourage you to try out this fun shape with us at Shopping Our Stash this fortnight!
I made a full-sized Slimline because I found this gorgeous bass (I think...?!) in an ancient, falling apart garage sale book called, "The Wondrous World of Fishes" I made him a watery home using torn and distressed bits of leftover gelprints; added Eyelet Outlet Sequin bubbles and spelled out "Best Fishes" using ancient square alphabet stickers. (Since I started serious cardmaking --circa 1990ish-- I have probably made my brother, Bill, at least twenty versions of a "Best Fishes" card for his birthday; someday I will get tired of it, but that day did not arrive this year, lol!) A skinny-skinny mat of Idea-Ology silver metallic cardstock completes the design. This guy would've fit nicely in a storebought #10, but I decided to make a custom envelope, using an Ireland page from an old British road atlas, big letters from the dollar store and a sheet of Volkswagen stickers from Pipsticks!
