Pink & Main – Forever Friends

Happy Friday my crafty friends! I hope you had a wonderful week and will be able to do what makes you happy this weekend! Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a floral slimline card.

I thought these florals would be great for a slimline card with their long stems so I started by stamping both images from the You stamp set. I colored them with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Playing off the colors I used on the flowers, I chose inks close to the flower centers and blended them across a white panel and then again over the deco stencil. Then I used the smaller slimline shape from the Beautiful Slim Line die set to cut the panel out.

Next, I die cut a purple panel with the next-to-largest Layered Slim Line dies and moved on to assembling my card. First I used EZ Squeeze glue to adhere the purple panel to a white slimline card base. Then I popped the stenciled panel up with foam tape. Finally I used foam squares to pop up my flowers.

This latest release was packed full of wonderful sentiment sets so I looked through those and landed on one, which I heat embossed on black cardstock. I trimmed it into a strip and used foam to pop it up as well.

For finishing touches, I added glossy accents to all of the flower centers. Then after much hemming and hawing, I chose beautiful orange pearls to adhere all around my design from the Rainbow Pearls embellishment wheel.

I’m not a floral girl at all but I was quite happy with the way this turned out and had fun coloring these sweet images.
