Hello mini slimline

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Can you believe we’re on the downslide to the end of March already? Where is the time going?! I have an awesome CutCardStock DT inspiration project to share with you today featuring my favorite Classic Crest which I paired with a nice variety of other cardstock in the store! In addition to the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, I used Bright Gold Foil; Pop Tone Cotton Candy, Jellybean Green and Gumdrop Green; Stardream Metallic Azalea and Flame; Basis Dark Orange, and textured Kale Green and Mantis cardstock for this CAS mini slimline. I used to be very intimidated by clean and simple, but over the past few years I’ve been loving it more and more!

I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White along with a background panel from 80# Solar White using the Kat Scrappiness Mini Slimline Quilted Backdrop Die. Using the Sizzix Geo Floral Frame Thinlits, I cut the frames from Bright Gold Foil, and all the flowers and leaves from Pop Tone Cotton Candy, Pop Tone Jellybean Green, Pop Tone Gumdrop Green, Stardream Metallic Azalea, Stardream Metallic Flame, Basis Dark Orange, Kale Green and Mantis cardstock. I assembled the focal element and then cut the sentiment from Azalea cardstock using the Art Impressions Windows to the World Die. The finishing touch was adding several Eyelet Outlet 4mm pink pearls.

I cut the inside panel from 80# Solar White cardstock and embellished it with strips cut from Azalea and Gold Foil cardstock. I added a foiled sentiment created with my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System, Glimmer Gold Foil and Glimmer Mini Everyday Sentiments Plate & Die Set.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
