What's on Trend? ~~ Slimline Cards

Donna is te hostess for  Challenge 430 at Shopping Our Stash is On Trend ~~ Slimline Cards, Now is your chance to jump in and make one for the challenge, they are fun and addictive. There are a couple of different sizes but te norm is 3.50 X 8.50 So simple the base is 7 X 8.50 and you have a piece left for a ;ayer, so there is no waste. Now I made several of these years ago  when they were not "on trend" but now you can buy dies and stencils to make them.  I do have a couple of dies but I already had my card planned in my mind and it turned out  perfect. 

My plan was to make a slimline card for my grandson for his birtday he loves his coffee and when I started tidying up the spare room I found my 2 inch dies, I didn't realize I had left them here (hanging head) two years ago.  Now that slimline cards are on trend tey are perfect. The patterned paper is from Stampin'up probably 3 maybe 4 years ago, Since I had the 2 inch alphas I made an eclipse card I am so happy how it trned out, although taking pictures down by the lake causes some odd shadows.  

Finishedd the inside with some scraps left over from the front (no waste) although I was having trouble in the bright sunlight to get all of the inside in the picture. 

An angle look at the eclipse,  The Birtday was diecut three times an layered for some dimension. 

Stash busting nothing over a year old on this card

This is such an excellent example of the slimline trend, Barb! The patterned paper is gorgeous, and the eclipse HAPPY is perfect. The decorated inside is sweet as well! On another note, hooray for finding your big alpha dies!

Barbara, I too would love to know how you cut and align these letters so perfectly, I love this technique of cutting the sentiment and propping it with foam dimensionals?
I also love that DSP.
Awesome card, teammie.
