Happy Tuesday, Pinkfresh friends! Yasmin here sharing with you a mini slimline classy/floral card made using Infinite Blooms Stamp Set, Infinite Blooms Die and Infinite Blooms Layering Stencil Set along with this beautiful set, I’ve used Essentials Mini Slimline Envelope Die Set to create the matching envelope and Mini Slimline Essentials Bundle Die Set to add the stitching details for the card. Besides that, I used Slim Leafy Squares Stencil and PFS- Inks as well to add a pop of color to the smaller front card panel and envelope. So, without further ado let’s jump right into the step-by-step for how I made it.
Therefore, I started off by creating the inked floral cluster so to do that, I went ahead to line up an A2 size white card panel over my Make Art - Stay-tion - 7 Inch and then, I quickly went ahead to line up over it Stencil #1 from Infinite Blooms Layering Stencil Set. Once, I had that step done, I’ve gone ahead to use an ink blending brush along with Ballet Slipper Ink to ink up the flowers.
Next, as soon as I’ve had finished the inking for the first set of flowers, I went ahead to continue the layered stenciling for the floral cluster by using Stencil #2 along with Peach Fuzz Ink. So on and so forth, I kept inking it up by using Stencil #3 along with Coral Reef Ink, Stencil #4 along with Emerald City and last but not least, Stencil #5 along with Evergreen Ink.
With that being said, after I had finished the ink blending for the floral cluster, I went ahead to stamp the outline for it by using Infinite Blooms Stamp Set and Detail Black Ink. Next, after I had finished the stamping I went ahead to line up Infinite Blooms Die over the floral cluster, which by the way happens to be its coordinating die and then, as soon as I had them both line up, I quickly went ahead to run them through the die-cut machine to die-cut it out from the card panel.
Moving on, after I had finished the die-cutting the floral cluster out of the card panel, I went ahead to set it off aside while I continued the die-cutting process for the card front panel, so to do that, I went ahead to line up over a large piece of white cardstock the larger and smaller dies with the straight stitching details from Mini Slimline Essentials Bundle Die Set and then, I ran them through the die-cut machine. Thus, as soon as I had finished die-cutting both mini slimline card panels, I went ahead to adhered down the larger over a white mini slimline card base using double-sided adhesive.
Although, is hard to see this step, I’d like to mention that I decided to add a subtle pop of color to the smaller front card panel by using Slim Leafy Squares Stencil along with Ballet Slipper Ink. So, as soon as I’ve had added the pop of color to it, I’ve gone ahead to mount the backing of the smaller card panel to the card base using craft foam adhesive to add dimension and then, I’ve got mounted the floral cluster over the card as well with square foam adhesives to add even more dimension.
Lastly, after having the card layout completed, I went ahead to stamp with embossing ink a sentiment from the set over a piece of black cardstock and then, I’ve got it white heat embossing with white embossing powder. Nevertheless, I went ahead to mount the sentiment which I trimmed off on a strip form and then, I created the matching envelope by using Essentials Mini Slimline Envelope Die Set and striped single-sided pattern paper. Due the single-sided design from the patterned paper, I ended up having a plain white top envelope flap, which is not bad at all if you don’t like to add extra details or liner to your envelopes. However, because I like to take that extra step, I took the advantage of customizing my own by deciding to add the matching design from the front card panel, so to do that, before sealing the front envelope flaps, I went ahead to use an ink blending brush along with Slim Leafy Squares Stencil and Ballet Slipper Ink.
Finally, right after that I’ve had finished adding the inner design to the envelope, I went ahead to get it sealed and then, I glued down here and there a few Metallic Pearls: Silver to the card to add a touch of shine.
