Say Thanks with a Slimline

The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #436 is still open through Sunday evening, September 5, 2021. This weekly challenge begins every Monday morning with a fresh sketch and runs for one week. This week's challenge sketch suggests a Slimline card.

First, I cut a panel of green cardstock and adhered it to a white card base. Using some striped paper in my stash, I cut a panel on the diagonal and adhered it to the green panel. I die cut some images, adding some of them with foam tape. Then the sentiment was stamped with green ink, die-cut, and also adhered with foam tape. The inside was decorated with a few die-cut images.

I used summery colors because I wanted my card to look fresh. I live in Arizona where it's still like summer. We have at least several more weeks before we notice even a subtle change in season.

  1. Lovely card! Like your choice of patterned papers and how the green of the sentiment brings the green of the leaves and strips together. Thanks for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Patty. The background is actually striped paper cut on the diagonal so no piecing was required.
