Making Coloured Cardstock With Ink Pads | Ultra Thick Slimline Cards

Hey Crafty People!

Today’s card is my entry into’s monthly challenge, and I’m using their brand new ultra thick slimline cards & envelopes, along with their slimline card panels.

I decided to pair them with the new color me happy die set from Concord & 9th.

I looked through all of my ink swatches to choose some inks which would work for this month’s chosen colour scheme and I settled on most Catherine Pooler with a single Altenew.

One of the coolest things about CP inks is that they so easily create a flawless layer of colour when you gently swipe them over cardstock; you get instant coloured cardstock which matches whatever project you’re working on!

I swiped a piece of Neenah 80lb large enough to get 2-3 of the crayon die cuts, and I repeated these steps for each of my chosen colours.

I decided to cut the crayon ‘wrapper’ from vellum so as not to hide too much of those beautiful colours, and cut the accents from more Neenah 80lb.

I layered the crayons on one of the slimline card panels; gluing some straight down with liquid glue and popping others up with foam adhesive squares. Once I was happy with my arrangement I trimmed the excess crayons off. It seemed a shame to waste these, so I popped them on the other side of the card!

The card panels are well cut, and having them pre cut, certainly saves a lot of time!!! The card bases themselves are 110lb, which is fantastic!!! I really only like to use 110lb plus for my card bases, as I like them to be sturdy enough to do the job! I found that a lot of pre cut & scored card bases are much too lightweight for the job so I was definitely pleasantly surprised!

The cards fit well in the envelopes, even with the layers of dimension that I added, which is always a bonus! ??

I’m looking forward to creating more cards with these panels & bases!
