Slimline Card feat. Garden Friends from Hello Bluebird

Hi everyone! Today I’m back with the Slim Card Basics die from Mama Elephant which I used with these adorable stamps from Hello Bluebird.

First I stamped the images from the Garden Friends and Fairy Garden stamp sets on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Desert Sand ink and colored them with my Copic markers.

  • Birds: BG11. BG32, BG13, BG15, YR000, YR20, YR21, YR24, YR27, YR04, YR07
  • Purple flowers: YG03, YG63, YG17, YG67, BV00, BV02, BV04, YR21

After coloring, I die cut the images with the coordinating dies. For the background scenes, I die cut the rounded windows with the Slim Card Basics die from Mama Elephant. To color them, I used Distress Oxide ink Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn. These I only applied very lightly and about halfway as I was going for a soft look.

To provide contrast against between the main background and the window scenes, I inked up the larger background with Distress Oxide ink Dried Marigold.

To make the window scenes stand out even more, I popped them up with Scotch Foam Tape. The Dried Marigold background was a bit smaller than the card base, so there was a nice white border around it.

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
