Welcome back for day 3 of sneak peaks! Changing things up today and sharing a mini slimline card as an excuse to use the NEW Sweet Stacks: Mini Slimline die cuts! I also used the NEW Lovely Layers: Sunflowers Honey Cuts, which is currently my favourite layered floral.
To create this card, I started by die cutting the largest mini slimline die from dark brown card stock, and used the next size down from kraft paper. I inked up the Kraft piece using a light brown ink using the Basketweave stencil for a tone on tone look. For the sentiment I used the Thanks die cut from matte gold cardstock and stacked it three times.
Lastly, I created the sunflower by starting with die cutting all the pieces of the sunflower once, and the leaf three times. I inked up the leaves using two shades of green. For the sunflower, I inked it up using 3 shades of yellow, and 2 shades of brown for the center. After I finished inking the die cuts, I splattered them with water and black paint. I finished off by stacking with foam tape for added dimension and added it to the card base.
I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!
