5 Penny Black Mini SLIMLINE Card Ideas – Same But Different Christmas Card Series 2021 + LIVE Video!

Have you ever made any mini slimline cards? They are such a fun sized card to make and the best thing is that it comes with no extra postage!

This LIVE was part of my Same But Different Christmas Series 2021 and you can check out my YouTube playlist HERE. Obviously I couldn’t get all of the cards made in one hour but I certainly had fun with everybody and knew that I would share them here with you.

The finished size of each card is 3 1/2″ X 6″ and here are my final designs.

I’ll start with my fave! This Sweet Snow girl is gorgeous and to ‘make it fit’ a slimline I stamped only half of the image. Then I was able to add some extra snowflakes around the edge.

Next, I thought it would be fun to create a speech bubble with my Christmas Greeting.

My next image is from Winter Walk and it fit this size card perfectly!

This time I added a sentiment from Christmas Moments.

And who doesn’t like a puppy riding a bicycle? I just had to make the bicycle from Christmas Cycling red lol.

This time I used an older sentiment from a well loved set called Believe. And I created a landscape card design, this seemed like the best way to use this image on the slimline card design.

I had a lot of fun with this next card as I decided to ‘split’ the car from Merry All the Way to make it ‘fit’. I didn’t have time to share this design on the video but it was easy to do.

And my final card was similar to the first design. I simply chose to use only part of the image from the Seasonal Skater.

The sentiment for this card comes from the Joyful Holiday Stamp Set.

    1. thank you yet again my friend, I would have had to stay ‘live’ for another hour to finish the set lol. But I really had a blast hanging out with you all and as always appreciate your help and support. Mwah!

  2. So glad you are back with PB. I love your 5 but different series with PB. The way you split the car with the dogs is just GENIUS girlfriend!!

  3. So nice to see how you finished them all off. Love what you did with the car.
    Thank you for all your inspiration.

  4. This set is just amazing Therese, you can send me one of each just so I’m happy. Love the colours and these wonderful stamps and aren’t the mini slim lines the bees knee. Xxx Aileen

    Loved the live on Thursday but wow to all five cards. The way you used the car/ minibus is just a great way to use the stamp. The colours are just gorgeous. So many ideas!
    Cheers

  6. Hola, Therese! Wow! Your cards are gorgeous. I love the girl with the furry cap and the sentiment. Just lovely! So beautiful. 💜💜💜

  7. All are wonderful designs! Love your color combination and style of coloring with these images 🙂 As to the card size, this is my favorite of the slim-line cards. Thank you for sharing these beautiful cards with us!

  8. I love your Penny Black series! These cards are so lovely and I really like this mini slimline size. Easy to work with and no extra postage in Canada. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I agree, it’s fabulous to have something that’s a little different shape and cost no extra postage (especially with Christmas cards as we send so many all at once lol)

  9. Gorgeous cards. I love the color combo. I didnt catch the live but did just watch the replay. You always do such an amazing job with the Penny Black images. I attribute over half of my PB collection to you!😉💕

  10. These are fabulous! Just got around to catching up on the live! I have a few Christmas Cards made but need to make some more.

    um I think I may have mentioned before I have a stamparatus with extra plates (4 double sided) and I also have another repositioning tool from craftonline so I am well covered for using multiple stamps and restamping. Seriously don’t know how I managed to create a stamped image before I had these.
