Plentiful Plants Mini Slimline Thank You Card

Stampin Up Plentiful Plants Mini Slimline Thank You Card- Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.  I did some (ok…a lot) of stamping over the weekend and finally started to really delve into some of the new sets in the Annual Catalog.  One set, which I was not initially that excited about, turns out to be one of my new favorites.  The Plentiful Plants bundle is a lot of fun and sparked so many ideas. I am a plant lover, both inside and outside, so I shouldn’t be surprised that I was inspired by this set.

For today’s card, I once again created a mini slimline….

Materials & Measurements

  • Basic White Thick card stock:  6″ x 7″, scored @ 3 1/2 on 7″ side
  • Gray Granite card stock:  5 7/8 x 3 3/8″
  • Bloom Where You are Planted DSP:  5 3 /4″ x 3 1/4″

Details

  • Glue DSP panel to the Gray Granite card stock.
  • Using a die from the Layering Circles dies, cut 3 circles through both panels.
  • Create a Gray Granite frame around each cut out circle.
  • Adhere this panel to the Basic White card base using dimensionals.
  • Stamp a variety of flower pots from the Plentiful Plants stamp set.  I stamped mine in Cinnamon Cider, Night of Navy and Merry Merlot ink.
  • Cut the flower pots using the Perfect Plants dies.  These could also be easily hand cut.
  • Using a dimensional, adhere each pot inside a circle.
  • Cut a variety of plants from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP and add to the pots.  I cut a whole page of these plants while watching TV to have for more projects.
  • As a little extra touch, I added a few water droplets on the leaves using Nuvo Drops.  You could also get the same results from Clear Crystal Effects.
  • The sentiment is also from the Plentiful Plants stamp set and is stamped in black ink heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I hand cut it out and popped it with dimensionals.

  • I did something a bit different with the envelope by using a piece of DSP.  I really like this brick pattern and thought it would make an interesting envelope.

I’ve had a few questions about the envelopes I use for slimline cards.  If you’re interested in making your own slimline envelopes, please stop back tomorrow as I will be posting a tutorial and template for both a regular and mini slimline card.
