Cute Fruit Slimline Cards

I have seen interest lately in what people are calling slimline cards. These cards are 8.5" x 3.5" and fit in a standard business envelope. I decided to try using the Cute Fruit stamp set to make a couple of cards in this slimline style. Cute Fruit is perfect for summer and is very adorable. The stamp set can be found in the Beginner Brochure, but not in the 2020-21 Annual Catalog.  

My first card features the watermelon and one of the faces which is included in the set. I'm sure this card would brighten anyone's day! I stamped 6 images in Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green directly to a 3" x 8.5" piece of Whisper White. I stamped four more melon on scrap Whisper White and fussy cut the images. The two with faces were layered on Basic Black and I fussy cut around them again. 

Here's a closer look at the melon with faces and the greeting. The greeting uses the Stitched Shapes and Layering Circles dies. I think the faces are so very cute!!!

My second card features the pineapple and yet another adorable face!! The pineapple are stamped in Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. I fussy cut these three pineapple as well. I used two more of the fruit shapes to create a background with Gorgeous Grape and Coastal Cabana. The Whisper White piece is 8.25" x 3.25" and layered onto a Gorgeous Grape card base. I used the Lovely Label Punch to include my greeting.

I think this stamp set is aptly named since these are indeed some "Cute Fruit"!! As I mentioned earlier, this stamp set is in the beginner brochure and can be purchased separately or as a group products which include clear block D, pack of Whisper White cardstock, and a Stampin' Spot assortment (Basic Gray, Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, and Shaded Spruce). 

I would love to know what you think of these Cute Fruit cards in the comments below.

  1. Cards are adorable. Especially like faces. The pineapple’s mustaches are my favorites. Since my boys love to eat pineapple these would make great cards for them.
