Slimline Pansy Petals Suite Card

slimline pansy petals suite card 1

 I haven't made a slimline card in awhile and I was looking to use some of the fabulous Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper. Some of it is so intense that it doesn't work on a smaller card, but the larger 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" dimensions of a slimline card seem to be the right proportion for the intensity of design.

I'm actually using the sketch of the last Freshly Made Sketches challenge, but of course I didn't get this posted in time for the deadline, needing to post my Monday Morning Live project instead. But I really like the simplicity and classic lines so thought I'd use it anyway.

Here's a closer look at my design:

  • Centered in the 3 1/2" x 8 1/2" Thick Basic White card front is a 7 3/4" x 2 3/4" piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock and centered on that is a 7 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper.
  • Across the bottom about a 1/2" from the bottom is a piece of Evening Evergreen Open Weave Ribbon.
  • The die cut pansies are made using the Pansy Dies from Thick Basic White, Pale Papaya, Fresh Freesia and Bumblebee cardstock. The leaves are from Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.
  • The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks stamp set and stamped in Evening Evergreen on Basic White cardstock. It's trimmed on either side of the sentiment and the ends are punched with the Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch.

June's Paper Pumpkin Kit looks amazing! I can hardly wait to get it! It coordinates with the Expressions in Ink Suite, and since that Specialty Designer Series Paper in not even orderable right now because it's so backordered, if you get this kit at least you'll be able to get some materials that are along the same lines! But to get it, you have to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin by June 10, and the way the Expressions in Ink went on backorder so fast, I'm thinking the sooner you subscribe, the better! Don't worry, it's so easy to manage your subscription, pausing or stopping whenever you want to online! Here's a link to use: Paper Pumpkin
