Check the video above for a step by step tutorial on how I made my slimline cards.

Joyful giraffe slimline card

For this adorable card I used the Joyful Giraffe Die-namics( MFT | SSS ). It’s so easy to put together and isn’t she adorable?!

I customized it to give her a longer neck and make her wotk on a slimline card.

I also gave her eyelashes and a bow for a super girly look!

Critter Caravan slimline card

For this card I used the Critter Caravan Die-namics( MFT | SSS ) to put together the car. I love how big the windows are so you can use other stamps from your collection that fit there, look for people or critters too.

I used a giraffe, a lion and a bear from the Sweet Safari( MFT | SSS ) stamp set. They are having so much fun!

Notice that I did no shading on the images, to keep everything coherent. After all there is no shading on the die cut pieces of the car, the grass nor the clouds. Quick and simlpe coloring looks awesome, remember a card doesn’t have to be always complicated or time consuming to look good!

  1. These are such cute and happy cards! Thanks for sharing! Where I live (Alberta, Canada) the Covid numbers keep climbing. So, as of tomorrow we will be in a four week lockdown. No visiting with family or friends over the holidays. It’s a little depressing for a lot of people. ?

  2. Darling cards. I love how bright and happy they are. They are certain to make whoever receives them delighted. Stay well and safe!
