Hey everybody! Dang, another weekend has come and gone, and it’s the dreaded Monday for working people, lol! Leslie here, sharing an inspiration project featuring Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White that I paired with our gorgeous Stardream Metallic Azalea and Kale Green cardstock! I absolutely love a pink and green color combo, and I’ve been a fan of step cards for many years and have made them in many different sizes. I put my thinking cap on and re-worked the measurements to create one in a mini slimline 3-1/2″ x 6″ size! I’m sharing the measurements for this (as well as my regular slimline size) in the Freebies section of my blog if you’re interested.
Cut Card Base & Layers
I cut the mini slimline size step card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White and a layering panel for the back from 80# Solar White. Next, I cut layering panels for the from Stardream Metallic Azalea that I ran through the Big Shot with embossing folders. I cut a layering panel for the back from the Azalea cardstock as well.
I adhered the front and back layers to the card base.
I die cut the front sentiment from Kale Green cardstock using a die in my stash. Then I stamped a sentiment on the back panel in green ink.
Add Floral Die Cuts
I added several floral die cuts to the sides and bottom of the card.
I added several gemstones to the front of the card, which completed the project.
