Check out this mini slimline card with bling and sparkle!
When we saw this mini slimline card with bling and shimmer from Jamie, we kept tipping it this way and that because that beautiful, subtle sparkle makes you just NOT want to stop looking at it! Want to make one? Let’s go!
Start by die cutting all your elements;
- Die-cut gold glitter paper with our Crosshatch Design die;
- Using our You Script With Shadow die, cut the script portion from the same gold glitter paper and the shadow portion from white shimmer card stock;
- Cut the same white shimmer paper with our Small Tags die, choosing the one you want to use for your sentiment and saving the rest with the die for future projects;
- Cut that same white shimmer paper with our Mini Slimline Cover #4 die.
Using Bubble Gum Color Fuse Ink from Set #5, stamp your sentiment – Jamie used one from our Someone Like You set – onto your choice of tag. PRO TIP: Depending on the type of shimmer card stock you use, you may want to do this using your stamp positioner – some shimmer finish requires a couple of applications of ink to be crisp.Using liquid glue to give you some wiggle time, adhere the gold script “you” over the shimmery white shadow portion of the die cut.
Stamp the rose from our Someone Like You stamp set with black ink into plain white card stock. Use our coordinating Someone Like You Stencil set and use the shades from Color Fuse Set #5 for the flower and Color Fuse Set #10 for the leaves to create your deliciously dimensional focal element. Fussy cut your rose when done.
Trim a piece of decorative paper – Jamie chose a pretty green with gold splatters to coordinate with the leaves on her rose – to a hair less that 6″ X 3 ½” and adhere your shimmery white diagonal stripe die cut over it. Adhere this to a white mini slimline card base.
Adhere your gold crosshatch to the left side of the card at an angle, allowing the tips to hang over onto the white borders of the die cut for that brain pleasing visual movement. Add your rose over this using dimensional adhesive.
For a card that is not super hard to put together, you sure do get a lot of “bling for your buck”! And just imagine all the different color combinations you can use to make this project!
