Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! It’s Release Day at Taylored Expressions and it’s a Mini Slim Essentials Release!!! I am officially addicted to the Mini Slim Card Size and so excited to share my new mini slim card design with you. Today, I’m sharing projects using the Mini Slim Thin Frame Cutting Plate, Tutti Frutti and Tickled Pink Stamp Sets.
All of my cards used the Mini Slim Thin Frame Cutting Plate because it’s way too much fun and an easy way to add pops of color and dimension to any card design. Using a metal shim with the Mini Slim Thin Frame Cutting Plate, I die-cut all the colors of the rainbow from the Bold TE Premium Cardstock Pack. Having all the thin frames in an assortment of colors allowed me to mix and match colors as I worked on all of my Mini Slim Card Designs.
As a Bonus, I also found THE BEST organization hack for all the extra frames…a coupon file that I found at that department store with a red circle. It fits all the frames perfectly (in rainbow order of course) and the best part…there’s a pocket on the top flap which is a perfect fit for the Cover Plate Fits! Score!! I LOVE a good craft organization hack!
Tutti Frutti Mini Slim Card Ideas
My first Tutti Frutti Berry Card was Strawberry Themed with bright pops of red, green, and black stenciled seeds using poppy seed ink, a black blender brush and the Mini Slim Wonky Dots Stencil. I colored the Berry Cute images with Cherry Pop, Lime Green and Peapod Liquid Watercolors and added a few highlights with white gel pen and cut the images using the coordinating die.
To a white slim card panel, I added a Lollipop, Cherry Pop and Granny Smith Thin Frame using liquid adhesive. I die-cut the Wonky Stencil background with a Stitched Mini Slim Stacklet that fit perfectly inside the thin frames.
I used a circle punch to cut-out the Have a Berry Special Day! Sentiment and then adhered the sentiment and berries to the wonky heart stacklet using thin foam squares.
To finish the card, I attached the decorated panel to a Top-Folding Cherry Pop Cardbase. But wait…I also used the Mini Slim Scalloped Envelope Liner to create a matching envelope liner using a floral print from the Bold-Playful Patterns 6×6 Paper Pack.
My second Tutti Frutti Berry Card was Blackberry & Raspberry themed with purples and pinks. I water colored the berries using Jelly Donut, Plum Punch, Raspberry Sorbet, Lollipop, Lime Zest and Peapod Liquid Watercolors.
Then I added a thin frame border in Plum Punch, Jelly Donut and Granny Smith cardstock to a white side folding mini card base. The berries were adhered to the center of the thin frame border using adhesive squares. To finish the card, I added the “You’re the Sweetest Thing!” sentiment from the Simple Strips-Thanks Stamp. For something extra berry sweet, I used the Mini Slim Scalloped Envelope to create a Granny Smith Liner from the Bold-Playful Patterns 6×6 Paper Pack that I added to a Jelly Donut Mini Slim Envelope.

Tickled Pink Flamingo Mini Slim Card
For my last card, I created a rainbow thin frame background for the Flamazing Pink Flamingo from the Tickled Pink Stamp & Stencil Set. And the white embossed sentiment…that’s actually the smallest frame from the thin frame cutting plate in Oreo Card Stock!!
I stamped the Flamingo in Oreo Ink and using the coordinating stencil I added Strawberry Milkshake and Lollipop to the Flamingo Body and for the wings added a little Pineapple to the pinks for a sunset vibe. I colored in the beak and legs with Copic Markers and then cut the image using the coordinating die. Before adhering the Flamingo with thin foam adhesive squares, I added some highlights with white gel pen and adhered the sentiment with liquid adhesive. To finish the card ensemble, I used the Scalloped Envelope Liner and Mini Slim Tropical Leaves to create a pink leave envelope liner that I added to a Cookie Monster Envelope.
