Hello Everyone!! This month Divinity Designs has gone Slimline!!! These long and tall cards are the hottest trend in the market right now and Divinity Designs has a MASSIVE range of goodies including papers and dies to choose from!!
I really wanted to make one card using larger roses since I had so much more space to play with, so I've created the roses out of pink card using Rose Dies. For the extra leaves and flourishes, I've cut some green and cream card using Rose Leaves and Leaves and Branches Dies to create the floral explosion. I've constructed the card base and layers using all the new toys.....I mean....products......
I've used Slimline Card Base Die (you will need a diecut machine with a larger die cut area), for the cream base, Slimline Rectangles for the pink layer, Slimline Layering Rectangles for the Beautiful Blooms Slimline Paper, Slimline Flower Petal Background for the cream decorative layer (swoooon....love this die!). For the middle, I've added cream card die cut with Vintage Labels and lightly sponged with cream ink (although to be honest, I think there was a tiny bit of green still on my blender brush so it has a slight green hue) and also die cut a Double Stitched Pennant Flags. To finish I've added cream card die cut with Happy Birthday Caps and airbrushed with RV32 Copic.
Now this card is not one you would realistically be able to post in the mail, but rather a special hand delivered one. If you wanted to post it, I would make the roses flat instead of shaped. But why go flat if you don't have to right!! :)

I have a second slimline card today, this time using a brand new stamp set called Raspberries! Such a cute stamp set filled with sweet sentiments!
I've used the Slimline Card Base Die to cut the red base, and the Slimline Rectangles for the kraft layer. I've used the image from Raspberries and versamark ink to stamp around the edges of the kraft layer. Next I've used Slimline Rectangles and Slimline Layering Rectangles to cut the red and cream layers and wrapped some hessian (burlap) ribbon around it. Next I've stamped the image from Raspberries in gray ink onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics and pencils. I've die cut this with Double Stitched Circles and brushed Antique Linen ink around it while still in the die. I've matted it with red card cut with Scalloped Circles for a delicate edge and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape. Finally I've stamped the sentiment from Raspberries in brown ink, die cut with Pennant Flags and matted with red cut with Double Stitched Pennant Flags.
