SOS 430: Slimline cards

Ooh, Donna has cooked up a great challenge for us at Shopping Our Stash! I love the look of slimline cards!  These cards are 8.5"x3.5" but I have to confess: I made mine to fit a narrow envelope that I had, so my card is 8"x4"... hey, I am just being honest!  

Here is my card:

These are my supplies:

  • Basic Grey 2013 paper... just a scrap left of this awesome paper!
  • Goldenrod cardstock from Tuesday Morning probably in 2019
  • Liquid Pearls in Gold Pear from 2011 (!) for the eyes
  • Tim Holtz die (Ornate Owl) that I've had for at least three years.
  • The sentiment was printed by me ten years ago
  • Nuvo Drops in Antique Rose
  • Sizzix adhesive on the back of the owl-- I am on my second pack.

Thanks for stopping by... please go see what my rad teammates have done at Shopping Our Stash

  2. Ohhhhhh so awesome!
    Love the colours...and that owl die...WOW...I don't think I have ever seen that one before it's amazing!!

  3. Mimi, that is one beautiful owl die!! and the pattern paper looks fabulous behind him.
    And what a great idea to make a tall card to fit the business size envelope, the measurements are not that different, I'm keeping that in mind.
    Awesome card, teammie.
