Slimline Mermaid Tail Card

I decided to try out the newest trend of Slim Line cards.

I am using my Gemini Junior die cutting machine for these Taylored Expressions die because they are more detailed and I want a clean cut.
 The blending brushes have been amazing for me.

I am using a traditional #10 envelope that I purchased a 40 pack from Walmart.

This took me a few trys on how to figure out getting a continous stencil.
I added some gold glitter paper on the back to give it some pop and sparkle.
This is my box of dies that I think are mainly My Favorite things.

I found one that would cut out the sentiment.

I also used my favorite go to black ink Versa Fine Black Onyx.
 To save of paper I cut out the center.
I also did the front of the envelope.

Moving the stencil up and using less ink each time.
Finished back of the envelope.

I believe it is becoming more fun to decorate the inside and back of the card and, front and back of the envelope too.
