If Friends Were Flowers Slimline

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Friday edition of the Blog.

We have a brand new release of dies in the online store. Your slimline cardmaking is going to get a lot easier. We have 9 Slimline designs and they are on a 25% off sale. These are wonderful, basic dies that should be a part of every card maker's collection especially if you are liking the new slimline style.

Have you ever needed to make a last minute card for a gift or a birthday or anniversary that you forgot about? Well, today I have for your viewing pleasuring a CAS style card that would be very easy to reproduce.  

I am using the Spring Flowers in Jar 1, 2, 3 dies and I created a card in the slimline style. So let's get started on some details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

I started by cutting the images in white cardstock. I thought they would standout nicely against a bold and bright background. 
Next I cut the image panel. I used just the double stitched rectangle from the new Lift Flaps Stitched Rectangle Slimline die and cut it from a bright magenta cardstock. 
I wanted an additional layer so I used the largest of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Slimline and I cut in black cardstock to continue with the bold look. 
I stamped my sentiment in black ink directly on the magenta image panel.  With this sentiment I will be able to use this card for a variety of occasions by stamping another sentiment on the inside. 
Now I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the image panel to the black scalloped layering panel with double sided tape. Then I attached the Flower jars using Ranger multi medium matte. 
To complete my card I cut a white card base measuring 3 1/8" x 8 1/2". I will add another sentiment on the card inside. 
I attached the image panel with double sided tape and scattered a few white faceted enamel dots. 
And that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for a slimline card using both the Spring and Slimline dies. See you next Saturday.
