Autumn slimline card | Polkadoodle

Slowly, the autumn theme is starting to hit me. And I bought a stamp set from Polkadoodle with the autumn theme last year. So it was about time to pick it up.


This time, I opted for a slimline card. The dimensions of this slimline card are 10.5 centimeters by 21 centimeters.

You need two pieces of white card stock, to die-cut the slimline frames from.


The size depends on the size of your dies. I used two dies. The large slimline die to create the first layer with. I stick these right on the base card. The paper die-cut with the smaller slimline die-cut, I make my own background on that.

I used the above colors for my background. Started with red, orange, yellow and green.


I used these cute stamps from Polkadoodle. For this card I used the acorn, squirrel, the mushrooms and the sentiment. I stamped them with my black memento ink.


It’s time again to color these stamps. I used my twinmarkers again.

  • Squirrel: Barn Red (245), Rose Beige (97), Sand (107) and Hazelwood (108)
  • The acorns: Warm Caramel (256), Caramel (253) and Hazelwood (108). The top of the acorns: Chocolate (118), Clay (116) and Walnut (100).
  • Leaves: Forest Green (50) and Grass Green (47).


On a piece of white paper, I stamped the text “nuts about you. With a black fine liner, I wrote the “r” after you, so it would read nuts about your.

I wanted to create “nuts about your birthday”, so I took the word “Birthday” from another stamp. I used the word birthday from the top stamp. I taped the text “Wishing you a very happy” with a post-it so that only the word Birthday got ink. I removed the post-it and then stamped it on a strip of white paper.

Finishing the card

All I had to do then was die-cut some branches. Now I can do all the parts on the card, and the card is finished.

Products I used:

  • Clear stamp set “Nuts about you” from Polkadoodles.
  • Slimline dies from Aveccreative
  • Memento drew drop Lady Bug and Bamboo Leaves
  • Chalk ink from Decotimecrafts. Carrot orange (38), Golden Sunset (40) and Pastel Yellow (68)
  • Twinmarkers (alcoholmarkers) from Decotimecrafts
  • Birthday sentiment stamp from Aveccreative

I would like to participate in the following challenges:
