Sending Hugs Slimline Card

Happy Friday!  I'm so excited - there is a new release of SLIMLINE DIES!  These are wonderful, basic dies that should be a part of every card maker's collection. My card today utilizes several of these dies along with an adorable mouse from the Spring release.

Here is how I created the card:

I started by using the second largest of the Stitched Rectangles Slimline dies to cut two panels - one from white and the other from green cardstock. 

I then used one of the Grass Slimline dies to cut a strip of grass.  By cutting the grass from the Stitched Rectangle first the stitching continues around the whole rectangle when they are glued together.

I then used the Clouds Slimline to make three stencils for my background.
Using a blending brush and Distress Oxide ink I stenciled the clouds.
I glued the grass to the background making sure I only glued the bottom and side edges (so I can slip my image under the grass.)  I stamped my "sending" sentiment and adhered the Hugs Phrase.  I placed a self adhesive sheet on the back of Hugs before die cutting to make this easier to place on the card.

Next I cut my image using the Mouse w/Flower Cart die.  The image is colored with a combination of Distress Oxide inks and Copic markers.

I wanted to use this yellow flower paper for my panel to cover the card base.  Because it was so lightweight, I cut a panel from lightweight white cardstock using  the largest of the Nested Rectangles Slimline dies.  I cut the floral from the largest of the Stitched Rectangles and glued them together.
I tucked my mouse and cart under the grass and adhered the image panel to my floral panel.  This all was glued to a card base.

I hope you've enjoyed my card today.  These slimline dies allow so many creative possibilities for your card making.  They are on sale for a limited time (52% off the bundle or 25% off individual dies) so please visit the online store.  There is also an Anniversary sale with up to 60% off select dies!
