Today I’m continuing my quest to find ways to create with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. As I mentioned before, this paper collection initially intimidated me. I felt that it was a bit too “artsy” for me. But I actually found myself truly enjoying creating with it. So I created a set of (my favorite) mini slimline cards using this pretty pattern from the DSP.
Materials & Measurements
- Basic White Thick cardstock: 6″ x 7″, scored at 3 1/2″
- Basic Black cardstock: 5 7/8″ x 3 3/8″, 3 1/8″ x 1/8″ (cut 2)
- Colored cardstock: 5 3/4″ x 3 1/4″, 3 1/8″ x 1/2″
- Fine Art Floral DSP: 5 5/8″ x 3 1/8″
- Layer the Basic Black, colored cardstock & DSP to the card base.
- When choosing the colored cardstock colors, I tried to pick a color that was a little more pronounced in the DSP cut. The cardstock colors are listed under each card.
- I added the colored cardstock strip to the center and the thin Basic Black strips to either side.
- Using the (retired) Punch Party stamp set, I stamped the swirly frame on white cardstock and the sentiment on Basic Black cardstock.
- The sentiment is stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. Note: the sentiment on the card above is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.
- Both are punched using the Double Oval punch.
I created a custom envelope from 32lb paper which is a little heavier than regular computer paper and has a smoother finish.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’re enjoying this first day of summer. I’ll be back with Karen Hallam on Wednesday for another cross country CASEing adventure…see you then!
