Slimline Is In!

Hello again!

Today I am sharing a slimline card, you may be seeing them a lot lately, they seem to be the in thing to be making and I really like how they look so I decided to have a go at making one.

I also tried the emboss resist technique for this card using the Painted Poppies Set (see the full list of supplies at the end of this post).

Here's how the card came together:

For the slimline base I cut a piece of Basic Black card to 8 1/2" x 7" and then scored and folded at 3 1/2". I also cut a piece of Whisper White into 8" x 3".

I stamped the large and small poppy along with the large leaves in versa mark on the white card. I then added the gold embossing powder and heat set.

Next came the blending, I used Poppy Parade, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie ink which I blended with a foam makeup blender of course you can use the small finger blenders but I use these because they a good size for a larger area and they are super cheap so I can just throw them out if they get too messy.

Once that was done I adhered it to the card base and added the embellishments. Again I used gold embossing powder to add the sentiment to a piece of black card that I cut one end with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch. Next I loosely looped some of the gold thread onto the card (with the gold thread make sure you fasten the ends as it unravels very easily) and placed the sentiment on top with some foam tape to hold it down.

It was a very easy card to make but I think the gold embossing and ink blending against the black looks very dramatic and I am really happy with how it has turned out.

If you have made a slim line card or ink blended card I would love to see it so feel free to leave a link in the comment section.

Hope you day is amazing,
