Today I am taking a break from sharing #manuarycards and sharing this slimline card featuring the Special and Kind stamp set from 88 and Clear. I have really enjoyed creating slimline cards (those that measure 8 1/2" x 3 1/2") because I feel as though the larger dimensions allow more space to create on! Have you tried making a slimline card yet?
The base of this slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I cut a 8 1/4" x 3 1/4" piece of green and black plaid paper for the first matted layer. Because the "Special and Kind" stamp set is a digital stamp, I printed out the images (at 100%) on Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I colored in the images of sunflowers and leaves with Copic markers. I used my Brother Scan and Cut 2 machine to electronically cut the images. I adhered the flowers to the card using 3M foam adhesive for added dimesion. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to all the flowers and leaves for added sparkle.
I hope you have enjoyed this slimline floral card. Thank you for visiting and have a wonderfully creative day!
