Hi, crafty friends. Today I have a very simple, very sweet mini slimline card to share, featuring one of the bears from the Love You Beary Much digi stamp set from Streamside Studios.
I colored the bear quickly with Copics, fussy cut and put the image aside while I worked on the rest of my card.
I haven’t made a mini slimline card in a while, and I haven’t made any at all since I purchased the Stitched Mini Slimline STAX die set from My Favorite Things back in November, and thought it was about time I break them in. I used the largest die in the set for this card, once on a piece of patterned paper from the Watercolor Wishes 6×6″ paper pad from Lawn Fawn, and once from white cardstock at an angle that I’d stamped a background stamp onto (the Paint Splatter background from MFT) and heat embossed.
I used one of the dies in the Precious Polaroids die set from MFT to die cut three times from white cardstock and once from a gold cardstock from Rayher. It has a brushed finish, which adds a little interest in texture instead of being flat gold. I put a thin strip of this cardstock above and below my heat embossed white cardstock piece as well, for a bit of definition to the top and bottom of the panel. I stamped a sentiment from the Birthday Messages stamp set from Mama Elephant onto a scrap piece of the pink patterned paper and poured on Gilded embossing powder from Brutus Monroe (the same embossing powder that I used for the paint splatter background), before melting the powder. I die cut it into a small strip with an angled end using one of the dies in the Everyday Gift Box die set from My Favorite Things and adhered it to the top of the polaroid using some 1 mm foam squares. I finished off the card with a few sequins from the Heaven Sent mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.
The Copic palette couldn’t possibly get any simpler.
