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!
