Send a Happier Harvest With These DIY Fall Slimline Cards

Have you ever heard of a slimline card? It’s the hottest thing in cardmaking right now — basically, they are cards small and thin enough to fit into a typical business envelope! Blog contributor Tina Kistinger decided to try them out for herself — check out these awesome DIY fall slimline cards!

Tina’s Inspiration:

Slimline cards are very popular right now, and I wanted to offer my take on the trend using the Hello, Autumn collection. These cards fit inside a business-sized envelope and there is more area to write meaningful thoughts and sentiments than standard-sized greeting cards.

To create these cards you’ll need:

Perfect Card

Step 1: Trim the Navy Solid Cardstock to 8-1/2″ x 7″.

Step 2: Score on the short side at 3-1/2″.

Step 3: Cut orange paper to 3″ x 8-1/2″ and navy weathered paper to 2-3/4″ x 8-1/2″.

Step 4: Mat the navy weathered paper over the orange paper and adhere to the card base.

Step 5: Adhere the foiled leaves to the card and adhere the “Perfect” embellishment using Foam Squares.

Together Card

Step 1: Trim Navy Solid Cardstock to 8-1/2″ x 7″.

Step 2: Score on the short side at 3-1/2″.

Step 3: Cut the red leaves paper to 3″ x 8″ and cut a 2″ circle with navy weathered paper using the Circle Custom Cutting System.

Step 4: Adhere red leaves paper to the card base.

Step 5: Arrange and adhere foiled leaves using the Repositionable Tape Runner and adhere the circle over the leaves

Step 6: Adhere the “Together” embellishment using Foam Squares.

    1. I’m thinking that score at 3 1/2″ would be to make the fold (to fold it in half)? I’ll have to try it, I can’t visualize it right now.

  2. Love your examples. They are beautiful and make me want to try this size card. It seems with no pandemic visits with friends and families, a card is a perfect way to reach out. I’m not much of a “call on the phone” person. :-)
