Mass Producing "Aloha" Mini Slimline Cards

 



Hey everyone, Debbie from Debbie J’s Crafting Corner, here today sharing how I quickly mass-produced this super cute “Aloha” mini-slimline card set.

I love showing the process when I’m creating.  I hope my tutorial and video help you see that, if I can make it, You Can Too!

I used the following dies from Dies R Us:

 


Here is how I created these super cute (and easy) cards!   I mentioned that I was doing mass-producing.  So each step is repeated 8 times.

Since these are mini Slimline cards, the first thing we need is a card base. So I’m taking a piece of  8  ½ by 11 in.  heavyweight cardstock I'm cutting a piece that is 6 ½ by 6 ¼. Don’t throw away the scraps.  You can use them later or on another project.

Next, I scored the 6 ½ side at 3 ¼.  Folding it in half creates our mini slimline card base.

 

Remember those scraps?  One should measure about 2 in. wide.  This is the perfect size for us to add our focal images to! But we will need to trim the end off a little.  I cut my panels to 2 in by a little over 7 in.  

 

Now let’s get stamping.  I wanted a row of pineapples from the Aloha stamp set across the front panel. So I’m using a stamp platform to make it super easy to stamp.  After stamping each, I just shift the cardstock 1 ¼ inches to the right, and stamp again!

The Aloha Stamp Set comes with these cute little faces that you can add to the pineapple! So I added one to each!

Next, I added the Aloha sentiment to the upper right-hand side of my panel in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I just couldn’t leave well enough alone.  There is ALSO a cute pair of sunglasses in the set.  So I stamped out a bunch, and die cut them out using the corresponding dies.

Ok.  Enough playing around.  Instead of just going white on white, I wanted a bright matting layer.  So I went through my pattern paper stash and found a gorgeous sunrise ombre paper.  I cut it into 5 ¼ by 2 ¾ strips and was able to get 8 of them from one 12 x 12 sheet!  Perfect to make 8 cards!

I adhered my stamped panel onto the matting layer with Dotliner Adhesive and added Scrapbook.com foam tape to the back of the panel.  Now I can add it to my mini slimline card base.

I stamped and die cut some more of the pineapples and adhered them to the inside of the cards… then I decided that the envelopes needed to be dressed up a little too.  So I stamped the flap of each with the little pineapple and the “Aloha” sentiment.

Here are some photos of the finished card.
