Fresh greens on a mini slimline card bring a breath of spring air!
We just love the beautiful emboss resist effect on this monochromatic spring mini slimline card! It speaks of soft, fresh breezes and that sweet single flower hints at bountiful days ahead! Allison created this for us and she’s sharing all her steps – let’s take a look!
She started by cutting a piece of white card stock with our Mini Slimline Cover #2 die and adhered it to a piece of soft lime green card stock cut to add a narrow border. She then adhered that to a mini slimline card base.
Now Allison used our so-new-they-haven’t-been-released yet – check back next week! – Bird/Rose Background strip set and stamped the rose strip onto a piece of white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder. She then blended Fern Color Fuse Ink from Set #11 over the background, buffing off the embossed area with a tissue when done to almost magically reveal that beautiful, dainty white pattern. She then cut that piece with the third largest die in our Mini Slimline Nested With Stitch set.
Allison used our Spring Word With Shadow die set to cut white and the same green card stock – white for the script and green for the shadow – and adhered the two pieces together with liquid glue. She also cut white card stock scraps with our Buchnera and Stems die and colored the pieces with her alcohol markers.
Now Allison adhered her heat embossed panel to the center of her card, adhered her word to the center of that with dimensional adhesive and added her stem and flower with liquid glue, adhering just the base of the flower and fluffing the petals up a bit for just a touch of texture. For her last touches, Allison embellished her card with a few Nuvo drops in pale yellow. SO pretty!
This monochromatic spring mini slimline card gives us all the springy feels and since it’s relatively simple to make, you can swap out that die cut word and use the same basic monochromatic tips shared here to create all kinds of cards!
