Hello my fellow creators. More of this week was spent sorting, purging and organizing supplies in my new craft space. I did manage to play for a bit. I used Echo Park’s “Summer Dreams” 6×6 paper pad to make some mini slimline cards. The whole process took me an hour, which is pretty good considering I made eleven cards. I began by selecting the papers I wanted to use from the paper pad. Once I chose the papers, it was as easy as cutting each 6×6 paper in half to fit on a mini slimline card. I cut the card bases from some Recollections white card stock. I cut them at 6.5′ by 6.25″ then scored at 3.25″ along the 6.5″ side. I then chose a few more patterned papers from the pad to add to the first patterned paper. I thought this would break it up a bit and give it more interest. I layered the smaller pieces of patterned paper (1.5″ x 3″) onto some navy card stock I had in my stash (probably from Michael’s). I then added this to the larger piece of patterned paper. I layered this onto some more navy card stock and then added it to the card base, leaving a small white border. I cut out some labels using the “Just for You Labels” set by Lawn Fawn. I stamped the border onto the label using some Gina K “In the Navy” ink. I then added the sentiment to the label using the “Sea You Soon” stamp set by Simon Says Stamp. Once I had all the sentiment labels ready, I added some foam tape to them and adhered them to the cards. I’m really liking the mini slimline cards and am sure I will be making more. I hope you enjoy this week’s video as much as I enjoyed making it.
