Coming back into cardmaking popularity is the slimline card. A slimline card begins with a piece of cardstock that is 8.5" x 7". On the 7" side, score at 3.5" and voila . . .

then the circle portion in orange.

I punch the flower in a large circle
and popped up the

And this simple slimline card is complete.

Thanks for visiting with me today. See you in a couple of weeks.
