I’m having to push myself to craft. I find Pinterest a great starting point. During one scrolling session I came across a set of designs for ‘tall and skinny’ cards ( or DL cards). Here is my version of them.
I started off by cutting into the stunning Nouveau Vogue papers from Craftwork Cards. ( I still miss this great company).
The Happy Birthday cutting die (from The Works) makes a great focal point for any card
Another set of dies that came in handy for these cards were the brilliant sentiment strip dies from Tonic. They are a dream to work with. I hope they bring out some more soon.
I think the next card is my favourite because everything just came together. The colours, the shapes and the wording.
It might be tricky to see in this photo but I actually used two different shades of blue of Nuvo drops to decorate the topper on this card.
The flowers in this particular set are pre-cut which makes them perfect for making a quick and effective embellishment.
I am so glad that I saved some of the Tonic teal card stock. It is brilliant for cutting out intricate dies. I can highly recommend both.
I hope (like Pinterest did for me) inspired you to give tall and skinny cards a go.
