 Hello everyone, I'm over on the CAS-ual Fridays blog today sharing a mini Slimline card I made using the Pinked Slimline dies.   You don’t necessarily have to make a tall slimline card with these dies and I show you how below.

I started with a piece of card stock measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and die cut using the pinked die.  I placed it right along the top as you can see below.

Then I placed it back in the die, lining it up so the straight edge only will cut.
No need to run the whole piece through, just the top bit.

And here’s a photo of the finished piece.
I did the same with the next layer but shortened the length slightly.

I made a balloon stencil using the round die and sponged some Catherine Pooler inks to make three balloons. I used a ruler to draw a line for the strings.  I die cut the hooray from the Hooray dies in pink and black and adhered them together offsetting them slightly to give a shadow effect.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sassy Celebration stamp set.

I hope I have inspired you to make some mini slimline cards and if you hop over to the shop you will find all the dies I’ve used today on sale!
