Do you make cards for Halloween? I always send out a few. 🎃 This year I thought it would be fun to make a slimline version.
If you haven’t tried this size yet, you should! 😊 The finished size of the card is 3.5 by 8.5 inches and gives you a slim, long space to work with.

I made my card using 3 of the cute Halloween images from the Little Boos stamp set from Unity Stamp Company. I also used the Slim Braided Circles die from Pinkfresh Studios to die cut my patterned paper.
To make your card base, cut a piece of white card stock to 7 by 8.5 inches. Score it at 3.5 inches on the 7 inch side and fold in half so your card measures 3.5 by 8.5 inches. This is a great scoring board if you are looking for one. I use a similar one all the time in my card making.
I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored them with Copic Markers. I punched the images with a 2 inch circle punch and sponged the edges with black ink. These little sponge daubers work great for sponging on the color.
I used the Slim Braided Circles die from Pinkfresh Studios to die cut a panel of patterned paper and attached it to the front of my card. Then I attached my stamped images to the card using foam tape to give them a little pop.
I didn’t have the right size envelopes for my cards, but I found this great tutorial from Cheryl Boglioli Designs on Facebook on how to easily make your own using card stock. (Another great use for a scoring board 🙂 )
Any small Halloween images you have will work for making your own card. And, of course by changing the images and color scheme, this layout can be used for any type of card you may need.
Happy Halloween! 🎃
