Today’s card is a slimline card with a twist. I used the #caseingtuesday352 sketch challenge to create my card. Yesterday I showed you my case on the sketch and decided to recreate it in the Wildlife Wonder Stampin’ Up! stamp set for a more masculine version. But, this time with a twist. I used the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper; which is still available and on Sale but Only while supplies last!

Now back to today’s Wildlife Wonder card with a twist!
I created this card for a sketch case-ing Facebook page that I am a part of. Every Tuesday a new sketch is posted from any of the current Stampin’ Up! catalogs. Today’s case sketch was from the Mini Catalog.
Here is the sketch:
Here was the sample from the catalog:
I made today’s sample a bit more clean and simple. I think for a masculine card you don’t need all the fancy die cuts, ribbon or even bling (oh my gosh did I just say that)! I love my bling but sometimes you just don’t need it. Plus, for mailing purposes keeping everything flat is a good thing.
So you are probably wondering where the twist comes in? Well that my friends is on the inside. I turned my slimline card into a money or gift card holder. This could be used as a great layout for a graduation card as well.
Here are the measurements:
Smoky Slate cardstock – 8 1/2″ X 9″
Score the 9″ side at 3 5/8″ and at 7 1/4″
Fold in half at the 3 5/8″ and fold at the 7 1/4″ to the inside of your card; secure the sides to create your pocket for your check, money or gift card holder.
I added a strip of Basic White for writing a sentiment or you could also stamp a sentiment or image on this as well.
Are you up for this challenge? Which stamp set(s) will you use. The sketch is just an idea for a layout and helps to take the guess work out of your card layout. I will turn to sketches when I am having a hard time coming up with card ideas. I love sketches.
