TCP Tuesday #371: Slimline!

Hello there inky friends!  It's TCP Tuesday at The Cat's Pajamas and this round is all about those SLIMLINES!  I wanted to play along but since I don't really care for the size of standard slimline cards, I decided to create a different version of the slimline.  I call it the "REVERSE SLIMLINE".  What makes it a reverse slimline? You may ask.  Well, a reverse slimline (I think it's my invention ha ha) is a card that can fit perfectly in an old school standard sized envelope.  It's SLIM and non-standard A2...Like Slimline cards for many, THIS size has been addictive for me!  
I decided to create a back to school themed card that I'm going to send to one of my teammates.  Although we're not teaching IN School for the first quarter because of COVID precautions, we are still working together to plan and get things perfectly set for what will be an interesting and challenging new year.  

To create my card, I pulled the fun  Skinny Alphabet Stencilz and inked it up with black ink onto a piece of white cardstock.  I then flicked a bit of black acrylic paint on it as well as rubbed a bit of ink along the outer edges.  Next, I attached it to some red cardstock and tied a bit of black twine around the card.  I also attached a button.  After that, I diecut a Toppers CutUps punched paper edge using light blue cardstock and then tucked that under the ribbon.  I stamped and colored the car from the new Beary Christmas Set and fussy cut it to remove the presents.  This image reminds me of the hours and hours of commuting time we won't have to do now that we're working/teaching from home.  

There you have it...a fun little reverse slimline card for my teamie...

Won't you join the fun and play along with our TCP Tuesday challenge?  You aren't required to use any TCP products so please consider playing along with us!

  1. Love that you used a Christmas image for this non-themed card. I don't envy the turmoil with teaching!
