Challenge Your Stash May

Each month on the 28th, I share a card for the Challenge Your Stash group at Split coast Stampers. This month’s theme is to create a slimline or mini-slimline card. I chose a slimline

Magnolia birthday front
Magnolia birthday inside

I used SU Magnolia Blooms and Happy Thoughts for this card. The dies are Spellbinders oval dies. I used TSOL slimline dies for one of the layers. I colored the flowers with alcohol markers. The ribbon was in my stash.

Card for James

The following card was created and sent to a 10 year old boy who has cancer. I chose an interactive card idea.

Front closed
Inside open
Two flaps open
Flap 3 open

I chose fishtank2stamp and morefishtank2stamp from The Stamps of Life. The patterned paper is also from TSOL. I used lift the flap dies from Lawn Fawn. I made an envelope that is decorated with the fish tank on the front where I wrote his address. I will not post it as I had the address written before the photo was taken. I thought this kind of card would bring a smile to his face. I understand he is currently in the hospital and hasn’t eaten for a few days and his white blood count is not in a good way.
