All Occasion Slimline Card Using CTMH Joyful Sunflower Stamp & Thin Cuts

Hello Friends!  How are you today?  I know a lot of people in the US have gone back to work; but there are also a lot of people still at home.  It is such a sad situation, with so many companies going out of business.  I think the same thing is happening world wide, not just in the USA.  I watch the numbers of COVID-19 and we are having a huge increase in cases all over US and several countries as well.  

I try to stay positive; but it is hard when you can't go out and visit with anyone, etc.  My family lives in FL and some in MO; so I don't know when I will be able to see them again, due to COVID-19.

I created my first Slimline card.  It took me longer than it does for a regular card.  I think there is more card to fill on the inside; so it takes longer.  

I used CTMH Joyful Sunflower stamp and thin cuts; which is available in our new July/August Idea book.  Another one of my favorites; which means the thin cuts will sell out early; just like the Sweet Hummingbirds thin cuts did.  CTMH still has the stamp set; but no thin cuts.  I am spoiled and love having the die cuts to match.  It makes life easier.

This size of card is hard to see unless I make it x-large on my blog; so that is what I am doing.  Sorry if it appears huge on your end.  LOL!

(Available in CTMH July/August Idea book)
I love using the thin cuts.  I am not good with fussy cutting.
