How to make a Zany Zebra Slimline Card Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you how to make a Slimline Card using the Zany Zebra Stamp Set.  The Zany Zebra Stamp Set is one of my favorite new stamp sets in both the Beginners Brochure and the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.  I think the little Zebras are fun playful and would make anyone smile no matter their age.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

Slimline cards are really popular right now and I wanted to share with you how to create one.  They really are not hard to make it's just the paper size is a little bit different.  For a landscape slimline card you need a piece of cardstock that's cut at 8 1/2 x 7".  You are going to score that at 3 1/2", and fold it and burnish the score line.  Here I used Misty Moonlight Cardstock for my card base.  Super simple right!  


My mat for my card is in Crumb Cake Cardstock and it's cut at 3 1/4" x 8 1/4".  I layered that onto my card base.  My next layer is the Whisper White which is what I will be stamping my Zebras and sentiment on.  The Whisper White layer on the outside is 3" x 8".  I stamped the Zebras in Tuxedo Black ink and colored their strips with my Neutral and 2020-2022 Stampin' Write Markers.  I used Misty Moonlight, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.  I wanted there to be just a little hint of the colors from the design and not all black.  


I stamped my sentiment in Misty Moonlight Classic Ink in the center of the two Zebras facing each other.  And then just layered everything up using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I keep the card simple so that a new crafter could easily recreate it if they wanted to.
