Hello crafty friends! I hope you are all doing well! I have found that setting aside a few minutes each day to be crafty has helped me to keep some semblance of normalcy during these crazy times. I have a slimline card to share with you today that features both the adorable Home Sweet Gnome and Backyard Bugs Stamp Sets. (*Affiliated links where applicable at no extra charge to you.*)
I love creating slimline cards when I have a bunch of images that I want to use in one card without it looking too crowded.
To start, I first stamped all of my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I then colored them with Copic Markers, cut them out, and then set them aside to work on my background.
Copic Colors Used:
- Red: R14, R27, R46, R89
- Skin: E0000, E000, E21, E11, E04
- Yellow: Y11, Y15, E35
- Green: YG01, YG03, YG17, YG67
- Blue: B000, B21, B24, B26, B39
- Mushroom Stem: E30, E31, E35
- Snail: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47
For my background, I trimmed a piece of smooth white card stock to 8.25″ x 3.25″ and then blended the top section with some Blueprint Sketch and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks. I then diecut a strip of grass from white card stock using the grass die from the Sunny Sentiments Die Set. Once cut, I then blended it with some Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks to give it some color.
Next, I stamped my sentiment with Black Ink onto the lower right side of my card and then added everything to my card base with some 3D Foam Adhesive Tape. Lastly, I added both a white and blue trim to my card using colored card stock so that my final card measurement would be 8.5″ x 3.5″.
