Berry Best Birthday 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 Saturday edition of the Blog.

IT'S NEW RELEASE TIME! We have a new collection of Slimline Designs. Your slimline cardmaking is going to get a lot easier. We have 20 new designs and they are on sale. You can get each individual die for a limited time 25% off. The dies have appeal for all styles of cardmaking. So check them out and make your selections.

Today for your viewing pleasure, I am featuring the new Circle Windows Slimline die and the strawberry image that's included  to make a birthday card for a friend. She celebrates her special day at the end of the month. So let's get started with some details on how I created my card. 

Design Steps:
I started my card by cutting the windows slimline in white cardstock. The panel is 3 1/2" x 8 1/2"
I wanted to use a strawberry themed designer paper in the windows, and I cut the circles with the 4th largest die from the Circle set. The circles are slightly larger that the opening so they will fit nicely behind. 
The strawberry image is part of this new die and I cut it in a poppy red cardstock and then again in a green cardstock for the hull. 
Now that I have all the card elements cut, I am ready to start card assembly. The card base is 3 3/4" x 8 3/4". It will still fit in a #10 business envelope for mailing or you could make your own. 

I attached the designer paper to the circle openings with double sided tape. Then this panel was attached with the same adhesive. After I attached the panels I realized I hadn't stamped my sentiment. I put it in my MISTI and stamped. I wasn't sure if I would have to ink a few times since I was stamping on 3 layers of cardstock. But one inking was fine. 
Next, I attached the strawberries with dimensional adhesive. I decide to cut three small vines so the strawberries weren't hanging in mid-air. I used an older Strawberry die. 

To finish off my card, I scattered a few green glitter enamel dots for some added interest. I hope I have given you an idea for a way to use this new die. That's it for me for this post. I will see you again next Saturday.
