Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop. Our first in 2022! This month, the theme is Sale-A-Bration. We hope that you enjoy all of the projects and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of this post to help you “hop” from Pal to Pal.
How pretty it is to see the first signs of Spring with Daffodils popping up! They’re such a clean, happy flower. Daffodil Afternoon Designer Series Paper is absolutely FREE during Sale-A-Bration! This paper pack was on top of my wish list. I thought it would be perfect to showcase today. There is a matching Bundle, but without a doubt, this DSP can do very well on its own.
The Bits & Pieces
The card design I created lends itself to showing off a few of the pretty patterns. I wanted you to see how you, your Paper Trimmer and Paper Snips can have a fun “Maker Session”.
Putting It Together
- This card is a Mini Slimline. The Very Vanilla card base is a 7″ square scored at 3 1/2″.
- The Pale Papaya polka dot layer is 7″ x 3 1/2″ and attached directly to the card base front.
- The black floral strip is 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and attached to the bottom of the card on top of the polka dot layer.
- The diagonal stripe strip is 1 1/4″ x 3 1/2″.
- The large windowpane check layer measures 2 3/4″ x 5″ . Don’t attach it to the card front until you attach the oval die cut to the left side.
- The Bermuda Bay Oval is die cut with the largest die in my Stitched Shapes Dies. I placed it at the center of the large layer and offset it on the left. I trimmed off the excess from the back of the large layer, then attached the layer to the card front diagonally.
- The flowers are all fussy cut from the DSP.
- The black leaf sprig is die cut from the new Honeybee Blooms Dies.
- The sentiment, stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, is from the new Ranunculus Romance stamp set. I thought the font matched this card design perfectly.
- The Basic Black sentiment strip is 1/4″ x 2 1/4″. I had to bring more black to the top of the card for some color balance. I think that little strip works well.
- The Very Vanilla sentiment strip is 2 1/8″ x 5/8″.
The Matching Envelope
I created an envelope template for this card. Below are the dimensions. I prepared a downloadable PDF with images that you can find in yesterday’s post.
- Start with an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of thin cardstock or copy paper. A thinner weight cardstock will yield a nicer envelope.
- Score on the 8 1/2″ side at 2 1/4″ and 6″.
- Score on the 11″ side at 1 3/4″ and 9″.
- Burnish all scored lines.
- Cut away all four corners.
- Fold sides in toward center and adhere.
- With a corner round punch, punch each corner of the bottom and top flaps.
- Fold the smaller bottom flap up and adhere.
- Cut a piece of patterned paper 3″ x 2 1/2″. Round the corners of this “envelope liner”. Tuck it in the top flap and adhere.
- Fold down the top, lined flap.
- All done!
So, cut, score, crop, attach and create a fun slimeline card for someone special.
…the only limitation is your imagination!
More inspiration awaits! Use the lineup below to visit the rest of the team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on February 9th. Our theme will be Birthday Bash when our team creates birthday projects to celebrate our family and friends.
Until then, have fun in your craft space!
