One type of card that I have been dying to try is the NEW Slimline cards. The Slimline is the new rage with cards this day and age. Actually, I like the look of them, but where we use Imperial Measurements and our cardstock is called A4, it really isn't feasible to make a whole lot of these cards. You would use a whole sheet of cardstock to make one card. I guess some crafting companies are making dies for them as well. I am going to show you my take using Stampin' U!® product. Just shows that you can use any dies for these cards.
I am so happy to use the Cherish the Season Bundle. Actually I think only the dies were used. Here is my card. I will provide a Supply List Below.
In the video, I show the larger size of the slimline card, but thought that it looked better by cutting down the card stock a bit more, I felt that there was just too much open space or as I sometimes call it Real Estate. You can choose for your self.

In the video, I promised the measurements. Actually these are the measurements for the smaller card.
Real Red: 7” x 8 ” scored at 3 ½, 3” x 7 ½”, 2 ½” x 2 ½”
Very Vanilla: 3 ¼” x 7 ¾”
Gold Foil: 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”, 4 x 4 ½”
I think you could use any size of the cardstock to match what you are trying to use. Have fun with it.
