Hi everyone! My Favorite Things have their new theme up for the monthly Slimline Card Challenge and this month it is 'Spring Has Sprung'. Let your creative juices flow and create a card in this theme like I have done below.
To create this card I first used both the Slimline Grassy Edges and Slimline Cloud Edges Stencils together with Distress Oxide Inks in Tumbled Glass, Twisted Citron and Rustic Wilderness to create the background. I then used the Slimline Starter Die-namics to die cut the panel I'd created but I kept the skinny outer cut, adhered it to another slimline panel and then with the main panel I backed it with foam tape, carefully aligned it and adhered it down.
I stamped the images I needed for my design from Tweet Memories and Spring Songbird and coloured them with Copic Markers. I used:-
Florals: G07, B41, V12
Birds: E0000, YR000, Y21, YR31, YR07, R00, R20 with W1 and W3
I used gel pens to add interest and definition to the florals and I highlighted points with a white gel pen. All images were die cut using the coordinating die-namics.
I added these images to the card either directly with glue or with a single or double layer of foam to build some lovely dimension so they really pop off the front of the card.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Spring Songbird to a sentiment strip from Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-namics, applied with foam tape and then just a few sparkling clear sequins made the perfect finishing touch to a 'tweet' Spring birthday card.
I encourage you to go and make your own Spring themed slimline card, enter the challenge for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher!! The best of luck to you and as always - happy crafting!
