Happy Weekend Friends! I am stopping by today with a card for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge: Lots of Love. I have been wanting to try a slimline card for awhile, and today's card seemed like the perfect opportunity! My card measures 3.5 x 8.5, so it will fit into a standard sized business envelope.
I started my card by creating my background. I used the Nuvo Shimmer Powders in Cherry Bomb, Atlantis Burst and Violet Brocade. I really wish you could see the background in "real life." It has the perfect amount of shimmer and sparkle...so pretty! I will try to add some pictures to my Instagram story later today and see if I can get a close up for you. Here is what my background looked like completed:
For my images, I used the Lawn Fawn: Sweet Friends stamp and die set. I stamped, colored with Copics, and die cut a variety of "sweets." Next, I used the Lawn Fawn stamp and die set: Happy, Happy Add-On for my sentiment.
I trimmed my card front down to 3 x 8 inches and mounted it onto a piece of light gray cardstock. Next, I attached all of my images with foam adhesive. Lastly, I attached my card panel to my card base.
I almost always make A2 cards, so this was definitely a fun card size that I will use again! Have you given other card sizes a try?
Stamp Sets: Lawn Fawn- Sweet Friends & Happy, Happy Add-On

I will be back tomorrow with a card for Butterfly Reflections, Ink.
Enjoy your day,
