Happy Friday crafty friends! Today I have a really fun, no coloring needed slimline card to share with you featuring the recent Pink & Main May release! I love these products so much and had a blast die cutting and gluing all sorts of things to make today’s creation!
I started by choosing a color palette that seemed bright and happy – distress oxide colors in twisted citron and peacock feathers. I inked up a slimline panel with both colors in sort of an angled stripe pattern but I wasn’t too careful with it at all. Then I spritzed it with water and flicked white acrylic paint on the panel. Once it was dry, I die cut it with the largest layered slim line die. Then, I chose some cardstock from my stash that was close to those ink colors and used the new plaid layering dies on them. I cut each panel twice and glued them together. Then I glued those to a white panel and set them aside to dry for a minute.
While those were drying under acrylic blocks I stamped and heat embossed 3 butterflies from the new Butterfly Sketches stamp set on vellum. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Next, I die cut 3 reverse scalloped circle frames from white cardstock. Then I found a circle die the same size as the frame and die cut 3 circles from my plaid panels. I used liquid glue to adhere the frames to the plaid and now it’s time to assemble our card!
I adhered the ink blended panel to a white card base. Then the plaid circles directly to that. Next, I hid a thin foam strip behind the body portion of each butterfly and popped it in place on each circle. Finally for my sentiment, I stamped it in peacock feathers distress oxide ink to match the background and die cut it with a large sentiment strip die. I popped it up with foam squares and my card is finished.
I just think this design is so bright and fun! These are some of the brightest colors I think I’ve ever used and it’s just beautiful to look at!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
