Hello there crafty friends! Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today I am coming on the blog to share with you this beautiful floral card using products from our sister company, Memory Box. 

I am in need of a few thank you cards; so I decided to pull out this large 6x9 stamp set called All the Happiness from Memory Box to make a set of mini slim line cards. In addition to the floral stamp set, today's card, also uses the Memory Box Spring Plaid Slim sheets,  Stitched Rectangle Trimmings die set,  and the Joyful Moments stamp set for my sentiment.

Mini slim line cards are just as popular as the regular sized slim line cards. They measure 6.25 inches long by 7 inches wide and are scored at 3.5 inches. Mini slim line cards make great note cards and can easily fit a security business sized envelope.

To begin, I stamped the floral image in Versamark ink onto a scrap pieces of white card stock and heat embossed it with Ranger Fine Detailed gold embossing powder. Next I took my Copic Markers and colored the floral image, then die cut the image using the coordinating die from the stamp set.

Next, I die cut the stitched rectangle from both a piece of white card stock and gold card stock. Since this die cuts a thin stitched frame. I paired the gold frame from the gold card stock with the inner piece of the frame cut from the white card stock. I sponged on some Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink onto the white panel, then stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Moments stamp set in Versafine Onyx ink.

Next, I trimmed the patterned paper to 6.25 inches x 3.5 inches and adhered it to my mini slim line card base with liquid adhesive. I then added the sentiment panel and the flowers to the card with 3M foam tape. Lastly I embellished the card with some gold metallic pearls from my stash.

Sweet Friend Shaker Card

Hello crafty friends! I’m finishing off my summer posts with this sweet ice cream shaker card. It’s still really hot where I live and am looking forward to the cooler fall temps!

This card is a mini slimline, my first time making one! Using the Whittle Ice Cream Cone, I die cut it five times from white card stock.

I took the cones and inked them up with Distress Ink. Here’s a little tip for you. To prevent your ink pads or die cuts from sliding around when you’re trying to ink blend, lay them on a Silpat or silicone baking mat. The texture of this mat grabs the ink pads and die cuts and keeps them in place. No more inky fingers! They are inexpensive at Amazon.

They also come in this style. Works the same way.

For the background of the ice cream I inked up a piece of white card stock with Distress Inks and spritzed it with Perfect Pearls for a little shimmer and texture.

I adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the cones and added foam tape. I used clear seed beads for my shaker bits then attached the rainbow inked panel on top.

For the sparkly lines on the card front, I sprinkled clear iridescent glitter over two lines of double sided tape and burnished it in with my fingers.

The sentiment was created with the Poetic Uppercase Alphabet. These letters are a great size for card fronts and the die cuts several of each letter at once. It’s a great way to customize your cards and it also comes in lowercase.

I attached my panel to a light grey card base and it’s all done!

This card could be used as a birthday card, missing you or just to say hello.
