Sending a texture chic slimline card!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a stunning slimline card featuring the Sending Smiles Bundle, Poppy Moments Dies, and the Texture Chic 12” x 12” Specialty Designer Series Paper! While the Texture Chic Specialty DSP has a coordinating stamp set and dies, the design I used for this slimline card, I feel at least, coordinates with the Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments Bundle! Add a little Vellum cardstock, Rose Gold Specialty Paper, and some Rustic Metallic Dots to keep the colors soft, but completely coordinating with the designer series paper! While there is a bit of die-cutting involved, adhesive sheets make assembling the card a breeze!

The base layer for the card front is Basic White cardstock, cut at 3 ½” x 8 ½”, and the second layer is this design from the Texture Chic DSP, cut at 3 ¼” x 8 ¼”:

For the rest of the card front, you will need:

1. From Vellum cardstock to die-cut out, use the outline die for the “sending” and the outline of the small poppy die-cut three pieces, placing some adhesive sheet on the back of the vellum before die-cutting out.

2. From the matte Rose Gold Specialty Paper, use the detailed “sending” die to die-cut out, placing some adhesive sheet on the back of the paper before die-cutting out.

3. Using the small detailed poppy die, die-cut one each from Basic White, Petal Pink, and the matte Rose Gold cardstocks/paper, placing some adhesive sheet on the back before die-cutting out.

4. Stamp the sentiment from Sending Smiles on a piece of Basic White cardstock in Petal Pink ink and use the smaller long banner Stylish Shapes die to die-cut out.

5. From Soft Succulent cardstock, use the detailed leaf die to die-cut out two pieces.
6. From Soft Suede cardstock, use the smallest stamen die to die-cut out three pieces.

7. You will need two 4mm and one 3mm Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots, not pictured.

I removed the adhesive backing to adhere the layered “sending” die-cuts together and to the DSP layer, mini dimensionals to adhere the die-cut sentiment, liquid glue to adhere the die-cut leaves as shown to the DSP layer, remove the adhesive backing to adhere the layered poppy die-cuts and to the DSP layer as shown, liquid glue to adhere each stamen to each poppy, and placed the Rustic Metallic Dots as shown. NOTE-I forgot to use adhesive sheet for the outline “sending” vellum die-cut, so I strategically placed mini glue dots to adhere to the DSP. This completed piece is adhered to a Soft Succulent cardstock card base, cut at 7 ½” x 8 ¾” and scored at 3 ¾” along the 7 ½” side:

For the inside, cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 ½” x 8 ½” and adhere a ¾” x 8 ½” strip of the DSP along the bottom:

For the coordinating Soft Succulent Slimline Envelope, I stamped the small poppy stamp two times in White Craft Ink and the leaves two times in Soft Succulent ink:

Like I said, a bit of die-cutting but the adhesive sheets make this a breeze, especially adhering the Vellum cardstock to the DSP layer! I absolutely love the color combinations in the Texture Chic DSP and even more with the Rose Gold Specialty Paper! I left the inside of this card blank so that it can be used for any occasion! I hope this week has inspired you for alternative ways (and stamp sets) to use the Texture Chic DSP!

I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
