Hello crafty people!! How are you this morning?? I hope your day is going well and I hope your up for checking out some new cards I made, My 1st Slimline cards actually…. and I’m pretty happy with them, if I do say so myself.
I started with one card. I had never done one of these and of course I would choose one that has soooo may things you have to pop out and then layer back in. But it was totally worth it!!
I started with Cougar White Smooth cardstock for the base of my card and then I thought I would also use it for the front portion of this card. I ran it through my sizzix, popped everything out and then moved on to cutting the next few layering parts out too. I wanted to go with a coral color and a pretty teal/blue color. So I chose Pearl canvas texture Aquarium, Wild Salmon and Beetle Black. I used these colors for both cards with a little different look in the end.
I started with black as the farthest back on this card. I then cut the salmon color and then the blue. Once I layered them, I found some little gems in my stash and added them on the end. Pulled two distress oxides out of my stash, one to match the blue and the coral colors I used, so that I could add them to the background on the base of my card. For the white card I used Saltwater taffy on the edges, glued everything down, placed the little black pieces in the latticing. Finished it off with my sentiment and moved on to the next card.
With this one, I started with a black base and black for the base of the front of my card too. I did all the same exact steps on this card, but with a different color order and salvaged patina distress oxide. Along with a different sentiment and colored jewels.
I hope you enjoyed these two cards, I have to say I really enjoyed making them and was so happy with the way they turned out, especially being my first Slimline cards I have made!
