You might have seen this card and I got so many nice comments about it, I decided to make a SLIMLINE camping card. As I have said, I wasn’t 100% sure how I felt about these slimline dies but when I started using them I realized how FUN they are! They give you so much more space to add extra details and this slimline camping card shows that off so well. And I got to use even more of those fabulous new cardmaking dies from Rubbernecker!

For this camping card I used the Slimline Solid Deckle, Deckle Hills, Camping Tent, Picnic Table, Camp Fire, Camping Items, Cooler, Leaf Group and Tiny flower Buds.

A slimline camping card with all kinds of die cut details in the extra space

Slimline Scene Base and Grass Layer

  • Cut a 3.50″ x 8.50″ card base using aqua cardstock and a slimline deckle layer using white card stock.
  • Cut two deckle hills section using green cardstock.
  • Use the slimline deckle frame to cut the edges and bottom of both deckle hill sections.
  • Mask off the edges of the deckle layer using masking tape. 
  • Apply the blue sky background using a large blender brush and blue ink and then remove tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the deckle scene layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Attach strips of mounting tape to the back of the deckle hills layers and attach them to the scene layer.

The Camping Tent and Picnic Table

  • Cut the fence sections out using green, aqua and white cardstock.
  • Assemble the pieces and attach them together using rolled up strips of double stick tape.
  • Cut the picnic table and benches using Kraft cardstock and color them using a mini applicator and brown ink.
  • Use gingham designer paper to cut the tablecloth section.
  • Attach the table cloth to the picnic table using rolled up strips of double stick tape.
  • Tuck the tent, table and benches in behind the grass sections and attach them using pieces of mounting tape.
