EZ with CZ: Clean & Simple Slimline Card

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday and welcome to another new series we’ve officially launched that we’re super excited about EZ with CZ a monthly series where Cathy Zielske shares some easy crafty techniques in card making with a gorgeous result!

Hello all! Cathy Z. here with a new series for Simon Says Stamp. The goal of EZ with CZ? Make clean and simple card projects that are easy to replicate. That’s my goal and today I’m excited to be tackling my very first slimline card.

Have you made a slimline yet? Normally, I stick to a standard US A2 (5.5 inches by 4.25 inches) for most of my card projects but after seeing all of the fun slimline cards being shared out there on social media I decided to give it a shot.

The finished card size is 3.5 inches wide by 8.5 inches tall. I thought that this Etched Linear Heart Die would be perfect for filling up a tall, skinny card front. Here is my video showing you how I created this simple card.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cathy for being our guest!!

  1. Very awesome Cathy! I love your card and I am LOVING your videos!
    Another tip, if your stamps are still in the MISTI you could re-stamp that arrow after embossing also :)

  2. Cute card! I’ve created just one slim-line card so far, but I like the look of them and they are fun!

  3. I’ve created a couple but yours is one of the first that has grabbed my attention! Repeating an image is so effective with this size! Thanks for this great series.

  4. I haven’t made a slimline card yet but am hoping to do so soon. Love this clean and simple design. Think I’ll make something similar as a Valentine’s Day card for my nieces and nephews. Thanks for the inspiration!
