Hi friends! Kim from Stamping Imperfection here to share a quick and easy slimline card with a peek-a-boo die cutting technique. This card uses the Summer Vibes stamp set from the Jess Francisco Collection. The stamp set is so quick and easy to create with because it has the solid stamps that don’t require any coloring. You can make a card in a flash!

I started by cutting the following paper sizes:

  • White card stock: cut one piece at 8 x 8-1/2″, score and fold at 4″, cut two pieces at 3-1/2 x 8″
  • Cut one piece of Yellowstone cardstock at 3-3/4 x 8-1/4″

Next, I die cut one of the white panels with a circle die that was just slightly larger than the striped circle stamp. One circle was cut from the upper right and one from the lower left so that the circle die hung off the edge of the paper about 1/2″.

To make stamping easier, I placed the die cut piece on top of the remaining white panel so that I could stamp on both of them together.

I inked up the striped circle stamp with yellow and orange inks and then used a foam blending tool to dab the line between them to soften the transition from one color to another. Then, I stamped this inside one of the circle die cut spaces onto the bottom piece of white cardstock.

I stamped the images that I selected over the circles using the Color Hive Eclipse Black Ink. The palm tree was placed so only the palm leaves and a bit of the tree trunk were actually stamped on to the card panel. These were stamped on to the bottom piece of card stock inside the die cut circle.

The sentiment was stamped in between the two circle die cuts, again using the Color Hive Eclipse Black Ink directly on to the top die cut piece.

I attached the die cut piece with the sentiment stamp on it to the stamped piece with the images using foam adhesive tape to give it some dimension. These went on top of the yellow and this was then attached to the card base with liquid adhesive.

I added a few Bittersweet Crown Jewel Gems to complete the card. Quick and easy!
