Time for another mini-slimline card. I seem to have a thing for those at the moment and today I’m going to share a purple one! It is one of MFT’s Holiday Penguins who is out to play today. The purple water colour background paper and the simple “everything” stamp is also by My Favorite Things. I’ve used a massive snowflake by Waffle Flower and both the mini slim line frame die and the word merry are by Lawn Fawn.
I bought this die set because I figured it could be a fun activity to do with the kids. The 4 yo thought it was a lot of fun and will definitely make more! This is the card I made while showing her how to put it together. The die set is by Lawn Fawn. Isn’t it such a fun thing to make and so far from what I normally create!
I’ve used one of Lee Holland’s cute stamps for this card. It’s a mini-slimline card where I’ve cut the coloured panel to fit the bottom half of the card. It’s put on foam tape over a Maja Design winter paper. This is one of my all time favourite papers. The sentiment is make with an Altenew alphabet set. The Tall Alpha set (affiliate link) is definitely one of my favourite alphabets! A few enamel dots and done!
I’ve made another card using the fun heart die by Mama Elephant. It is called Mod Heart. I’ve cut out the stripes for the heart in various colours and for this one I chose softer more feminine colours. It’s clued onto the card on the right hand side with foam tape. The sentiment is by Norsk Stempelblad, it means “fill life and the days with love” and it is stamped right onto the card base.
I’ve stamped the sentiment twice. It is called Another Joyeux Noel. Once on the background and then also on the coloured image. This is because the coloured image was die cut after I coloured it, but I didn’t want the text stamp to disappear behind it. I used only the Christmas part of the sentiment and used a text stamp from the Sweet Holiday set which I embossed in white onto black to go with. The card was finished off with a few sequins from The Winter Blues mix.
The text stamp is stamped right onto the card base whereas the coloured image is die cut and put on foam tape to get some dimension. I coloured up the background behind him in a deeper shade of blue to make him stand out more.
Here is a close-up of the polar bear because he’s cute!
