Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Slimline cards are the rage right now and Kat Scrappiness has you covered with an awesome selection of dies. Below you will find the steps to create your own Lola Happy Birthday Slimline Card.
Step 1 – Trim White Cardstock to 7” x 8 1/2”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (Slimline)
Step 2 – Diecut Wonky Stitched Nesting Slimline using White Cardstock. Adhere to card front using Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.
Step 3 – Trim White Cardstock to 2 1/2” x 7 1/2”. Apply Distress Oxide Ink Speckled Egg and Stormy Sky onto a kraft mat, spray with water and dip the panel into the ink. Heat set in between dips and repeat until desired effect is achieved. Set aside to dry.
Step 4 – Diecut Never Ending Circles to create Balloons using various colours of Cardstock. (If you have a Balloon die then use that instead). Cut out a small triangle to place in back of the circles. Add string to the back using a piece of tape. Adhere to panel created in Step 3. Bottom Balloon is adhered using Foam Tape and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to the balance. Trim off the Balloons that is hanging off the edges. Adhere the entire panel to the card front.
Step 5 – Stamp Lola The Giraffe using Gina K Amalgam Ink on White Cardstock. Colour in with any Alcohol Markers of your choice. I used Spectrum Noir Classique Markers. Fussy cut the image and using a Black marker add Black ink to the edges. While I was doing that my marker slipped and I marked the ear and the foot. To fix this I created a bow to cover the ear and recoloured the feet and that fixed my errors. Wrap the strings around the horn on the left side and adhere the image using Foam Tape
Step 6 – Stamp Everyday Brush Strokes sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink to the bottom of the card front.
Step 7 – For added interest and sparkle randomly adhere Sparkling Clear Jewels using a Crystal Katana and Collage Medium.
This card can be used for many occasions by changing the colours and sentiment. For an example it can be for an anniversary or baby shower, etc. Below is a link to the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
