A Fat Thinlet….

The new Thinlit dies are just the best!  Have you tried them?  The way they are intended to cut makes a fabulous card and you still get the surprise of the rotating message when you open it.  Can we make it better?  You betcha!

Here is a sample of what you can do with your Thinlit to make it a “Fatlit”.


And here is the inside and why it’s called a “Fatlit” (just by me, of course)…


Is that just too cute or what?  The little belly band will help to keep the card  closed and add some cuteness to the card front.  Just today, I saw an even fatter thinlit card made by Mary Fish at Stampin’ Pretty with a pocket for a gift card.  Now we’ll just have to give that one a try, too.

Here is how you position your 5 3/8″ x 8 1/4″ paper in your die.  See how you thread the paper over the end of the die so it doesn’t get cut?  Then score at 5 7/8″ and you’ve got your “Fatlit”!


Here are a list of the supplies used for this card which is intended for my sweet sister on Friday…

  • Stamps:  Create a Cupcake
  • Paper:  Designer Series Paper Stack (Strawberry Slush), Whisper White CS
  • Ink:  Strawberry Slush, Staz On Black
  • Tools:  Cupcake Punch, Bitty Banners Die, Envelope Liner Die
  • Embellishments:  Rhinestones,  Stampin’ Glitter

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…”It’s a good day to have a good day!”

And it’s a great day to get those fingers inky…
