All Occasion Slimline Card | Pink and Main - "Cherry Blossoms"


I've got a slimline card for you today featuring the "Cherry Blossom" Stamp Set from Pink and Main! I used a color combination that feels like springtime - Robin's Egg Blue mixed with pinks/plums and bright greens!

I decided to try something a bit different and so I heat embossed all of the floral clusters onto heavy vellum and painted the images on both the front and back. When they were thoroughly dry, I cut them out. The great thing about this set is that the clusters are integrated along the branch and also as separate stamps so this made my job much easier!

The vellum clusters warped just a bit after they were painted but this worked out great for what I had planned! I die cut the branch image onto white card stock and painted just the areas that would show, attached the vellum pieces with a few glue dots and added iridescent gems to the centers! They look like they are floating above the white card stock and add great dimension!

I ink blended a panel with Speckled Egg/Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks and spattered lots of gold/pearl paints on top. I die cut the panel with two of the Layered Slimline Dies to make my frame. I added a shadow to the smaller panel by blending a bit more ink through the branch die cut piece and heat embossed my sentiment. This panel was glued to the center of a slimline card base (4" x 9"). The branch was attached on top and the outer frame was backed with foam tape and pressed into place.

I was really happy with the way the vellum cherry blossoms turned out! Thanks so much for joining me and for more great inspiration check out Pink and Main's Blog, Instagram and FaceBook Pages!
