For You- mini slimline card by Karen

For You- mini slimline card by Karen



Hello! I'm back today with my weekly Design Team Post and today's card is a Mini Slimline card. After white heat embossing the Floral Hugs stamp onto water colour paper, I used Jane Davenport Water Color Markers and a water brush to paint the image.  The panel was trimmed to be slightly smaller than the teal matting layer & card base and it was popped up with a full panel of fun foam. 


Since I usually decorate the insides of my cards too, I added coordinating teal and white panels, stamping along the outer edge of the white one with the Floral Hugs image and yellow ink before adhering them inside the card.

I spattered a little diluted black ink and added a few Majestic sequins from Studio Katia. Stickles glitter was also added to a few flowers for a little more shimmer & shine. The 'For You' comes with the Floral Hugs and I white heat embossed it on a scrap of the same teal card stock as the mat and popped it up with thin foam tape. My Mini Slimline card today measures 6 x 3.5" and fits in a #8 envelope.

I'm Karen Aicken and I'll be back next week with another Crafty Meraki project - a "To-Tailly-Awesome" Slimline Card.  Have a wonderful Tuesday!
