My first project is a mini slimline pop-up box card that measures at 3.5″ x 6.5″ when folded. I made mine by hand, but if you are looking for something similar, MFT offers two different mini slimline box card die sets that are amazing! I colored a number of the cute little pandas from the new Panda Party Stamp Set with Copic Markers after stamping them onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the coordinating Panda Party Die Set to cut them out. I also added a bundle of balloons from the Floating By Stamp Set. I cut the balloon bundle using my Brother ScanNCut so that I could have the strings included, but you can easily fussy cut them as well.
I added some grass by trimming 4 pieces of white card stock to 4″ x 2″ and die cutting them with the grass die from the Slimline Nature Border Dies. I then blended these pieces with some Bundled Sage Distress Oxide Ink and splattered them with some diluted opaque white paint. I also blended a blue sky background with some Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink.
Copic Colors Used:
- Pandas: W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
- Pinks: RV02, RV04, RV55, RV66
- Greens: YG01, YG07, YG17, YG67
- Blues: B000, B01, B04
- Purples: V01, V12, V15
- Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15
- Oranges: YR02, YR04, YR18
For my second card, I made a clean and simple card featuring the cute little pups from the Puppy Love Stamp Set. I wanted the puppies to be the focal point of the card, so I kept my background simple. To start, I trimmed a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 4.25″ x 5.5″. I then stamped my pups onto the lower left corner of my card with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I also stamped my sentiment on the top right corner with the same ink.
Copic Colors Used:
- Browns: E40, E42, E43, E44
- White: 0, W00, W1, W3
- Reds: R14, R35, R59, R89
- Shadow: T1, T3
