A SUPER Cute Woodlands Slimline Card!
We are so impressed with all of the wonderful cards you guys are making with the new Woodlands sets and this Woodlands slimline is one we just had to share! Creating fun scenes really makes each card unique and beautiful.
Today our designer Alison has created an ombre slimline that feels like its out of a Disney movie, woodland creatures all alert and joyful! We love these sets and are so excited to see what else you guys create with them. Follow along to see how Alison made this fun card.
Today Alison has combined two of the new sets on her slimline card, Woodland Animals #1 and Woodland Animals #3. We love all three sets and how they all build on each other. For this card she started with white cardstock and and did a beautiful ombre ink blend for the background. We love how the colors just melt together like butter.
She then used then Nested Slimline set and cut out the panel using the largest die in the set. By gluing this onto a white base, she added some colorful dimension and made it really pop agains the white. Do you guys always use a white card base when you craft, or do you prefer color?
She then used the next die in the nested set to cut an additional frame out of white cardstock. By gluing this down on top of her inked background, and choosing to place the glue on the outer edges of the frame, she gave herself a spot to tuck her stamped images into. What a great tip!
Choosing which little creatures to include on the card is always hard, because you just want to use them all. Depending on the orientation of your card, and the different ways each animal is looking, you can really create a flow. What we love about similes is the ability to build upwards. The cute owl in the top is looking out on the squirrels who are looking around and the beaver is just doing his own thing lol. Allison did a great job coloring up these fun little guys with Copic Markers and then building her scene.
She used our new Kittie Says Phrases to stamp out and attache a very simple “Thankful” to the card. Nothing makes us more thankful than nature, and all that comes from it. What a fun and colorful card to send as a thankful note to a friend.
We hope you are loving our Woodland Animals as much as we are and would love to see your creations. Be sure to tag us at #rubberneckerstamps so we can OOO and AHH at all your cards!
