Slimline and Easel Cards - Happy Half Hour Facebook Live

Hello, my joyful friends and stampers!  Every Thursday at 11 AM ET I go live on The Joyful Stamper Facebook Page.  Everyone is invited!  On yesterday's live, I demonstrated how to make both an easel card and a slimline card.  Both are super easy.  The easel card is great because it's a fun fold that still fits in a regular A2-sized envelope (those are the ones that fit a standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card) - no extra postage required, nothing crazy, but something different!  A slimline card fits in a business-sized envelope, and those you can get 40 for a $1 at the dollar store!

The sentiment strip is adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals so that it props the folded part of the card upright.  The sentiment comes from Timeless Tropical.

Here you can see the form of the easel card.  I put the measurements in the project sheet (found at the end of this post).  You can also watch the replay below to see how to make this card.

This is a slimline card, using Timeless Tulips stamp set and the Tulip Builder Punch.  You start with a 7" x 8-1/2" piece of cardstock and fold it in half at 3-1/2".  It fits in a business-sized envelope with room to spare (that's why my Highland Heather tulip can extend off the card edge).  My stamps are pretty much the only way I'll ever have a pretty flower gardenšŸ¤£
