Are you a procrastinator? I sure am! I’ve had this challenge on my ‘to craft’ for weeks, just never got to it for some reason, kept finishing up other projects here and there. So here I am submitting these on the last day of the challenge, better late than never, right?
Using the Pink Fresh Studio Month Challenge as my inspiration, I made two cards. You know there had to be a slimline card!
I used the same Fleur 1 stamp set on both cards, which is unfortunately discounted, but I just love it! I wanted to show you how to “stretch” your stamps to make slimline cards! So far I only have one slimline die, but I’ve been making a ton of cards! I have my eye on a few other slimline products, lets see how long I can stay strong!
For my slimline card, I started by inking a 3.5 x 8 inch to match the colors on the challenge mood board, then die cut it using the larger frame of the Mama Elephant Slimline Basic Die, Then I stamped and embossed (with gold) the larges floral bouquet image from the Fleur stamp set on both ends on the inked panel. For the sentiment I used the Hello Friend Script Die from Pretty Pink Posh, die cut from glitter cardstock and stacked to add dimension.
For the second card, I stamped and embossed the same image, this time on vellum, and die cut it using the coordinating die cut. I stamped and embossed (in gold) the sentiment from the Fleur 2 stamp set. To create the background I inked up an A2 panel, with the same colors as the slimline card (listed below). Then I embossed it using the Geo Floral Background Die. I adhered the vellum diecut using liquid adhesive that dries clear and a foam tape for the sentiment.
