I am Swapna Nair from Magic Paper Pixie. Today I am sharing some fun and easy slimline cards on the blog . Slimline cards have been quite a rage for a while now , and since I have never tried making them , I thougth I might as well join the party and have some fun.
The theme for our Monthly Challenge is ” Glitter and Shine “. Do join the monthly challenge ,we would love to see your take on the glitter and shine theme.
All my three cards today are slimline cards. The standard measurements that I have used for all the card bases are 4 * 9 inches . The card panel on top of each of these cards are slightly smaller than the card bases . (approx 3 3/4 * 8 3/4 inches.
The first card is made using the stamp set sweet love . I used a white card panel measuring a little less in size than the base (4″*9″ inches) and used the craftangles scalloped stitched border die on all four sides to give an added interest to the panel , I then die cut three small hearts on the panel and used a light pink cardstock as the backdrop that can be seen through the heart shapes of the panel. I stamped the sentiment Me & You masking the word “just” on the pink cardstock . The sentiment is visible through the heart in the centre of the panel . I then copic colored the images of the girl and boy from the stamped and placed it on either side of the card panel .
I then did very light stencilling with worn lipstick distress oxide ink on some parts of the panel with a dots stencil . And finally I added a few sequins and jewels to the panel along with some clear shimmer on the hearts that are visible through the die cut.
For the second card, I used the rough watercolour paper as the panel since I wanted the card to have some texture. I then used the craftangles felicity collection pattern paper along with some craftangles kraft cardstock and cut them in to 3 squares each . I used a distress tool on the pattern paper to give it a jagged edge and used a little distress oxide on the edges of it . I then stamped and colored the flower image from the stamp set Hello Lovely. After fussy cutting these images I layered these on top of each other on the panel horizontally.I finally added the sentiment and a few jewels and ink splatters to complete the card.
For the third card I used the same stamp set “hello lovely” and stamped the flowers towards the corner of the card panel . I used a masking paper to ensure that the flowers are overlapped and grouped together. I then copic colored these images. I also stamped the same image with antique linen towards the edges of the card and completed the card using a hello die cut with a gold mirror cardstock .I used the distress tool to give the whole panel a jagged look. In the end I also added a few ink splatters and jewels on the card.
