This month, our blog hop team made projects to celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Week, which is February 14-20! We hope you will be inspired by all the beautiful creations the Pals made for you! As you hop from blog to blog, we would love for you to leave a comment. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I’m so happy to be back “hopping” with the Pals again! For today’s project, I created a mini slimline friendship card with a custom-sized envelope. You can see my slimline envelope tutorial HERE. This layout could be used for so many different occasions. The color and pattern combinations are absolutely endless. You can quickly turn this into a Valentine card for this time of year.
Let me tell you how…
Materials & Measurements
- Basic White card base: cut at 6″ x 7″, scored at 3 1/2″ to create a mini slime measuring 6″ x 3 1/2″
- Regency Park Designer Series Paper Pattern: cut at 5 7/8″ x 3 3/8″
- Basic White center panel: cut at 2 1/2″ x 5 7/8″
- Balmy Blue card stock (strips): cut at 1/8″ x 5 7/8″
- Night of Navy and Regency Park DSP to punch hearts
- Adhere the DSP panel to the front of the card base. Then center the Basic White panel in the middle and glue. Add the Balmy Blue strips to either side of the white panel.
- Using the Heart Punch Pack, punch three scalloped hearts from Night of Navy card stock and three straight hearts in a variety of DSP in coordinating colors. Glue down the center of the white panel.
- Cut the label from the Pretty Pillow dies in white and Night of Navy card stock.
- Stamp the sentiment, from the Country Bouquet stamp set onto the white label in Night of Navy ink.
- Cut each end from the Navy label and glue to each end of the white label to give it a pretty border.
- Lastly, add a coordinating embellishment to the label. I used an Adhesive-backed Milky Dot in Navy.
Here’s a peek inside…the sentiment is also from the Country Bouquet stamp set.
Since our theme is Random Acts of Kindness, I thought a little treat would be nice to go along with the card.
- I decorated a white Peek-a-Boo Treat Bag and added six wrapped Hershey Nuggets.
- I shortened the same label I used on the card to fit the smaller sentiment.
I remember when every hardcore stamper always had a supply of Hershey Nuggets on hand. I actually had to go out and buy some for this project. But now that their in the craft room, I’ll need to make more projects so I don’t end up eating them all!
More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on March 8th, when our theme will be Party Time, showcasing cards/projects that celebrate our family and friends.
Until then, have fun in your craft space.
