Today’s card is my first Slimline card. I suppose you would call this a Mini Slimline. The finished card dimensions are 3 1/2″ x 7″. I thoroughly enjoyed putting this together. It was a nice change from my A-2 cards.
My inspiration for this card came from the beautiful, subtle designs in the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper. The card had to have a soft, delicate vibe to match he patterns. I laid out all of the patterns and made my choices. “Pattern Repeat” came to mind as I was making my pattern decisions. You can see the floral images repeated more than once in my card. Repeating a pattern in a card design, whether it’s flowers, circles or simple shapes always works!
Today’s Card Elements
- Working with a Product Suite makes it easy to create. The Heart & Home Suite includes the Honeybee Home Bundle, Heart & Home Designer Series Paper and the Heart & Home Doilies.
- The Basic White card base is a 7″ square scored at 3 1/2″.
- The Basic Gray and White wood grain patterned paper layer is 7″ x 3 1/2″, attached to the card front.
- The large floral patterned paper is 2 1/2″ x 6″, attached to the right side of the card front, centered.
- The smaller floral patterned paper is 2 1/2″ x 1 1/2″. I attached this to the top of the larger floral DSP.
- I used Basic Gray ink for all of the stamped images, die cut them with the matching Honeybee Blooms Dies and added a bit of color with Fresh Freesia and Pale Papaya Blends.
- The pretty Basic Gray doily is the perfect “grounding” layer for all of the die cut elements.
- I punched the sentiment with the scalloped oval with the Double Oval Punch.
- I scattered some sparkle with a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels. Love them!
