Rediscover the Charm of Slimline Cards: Swanky Birthday Wishes

#birthdaycard #silvanachambon #slimlinecard #slimlinediecuttingsystem

Hello, friends, and welcome to the Picket Fence Studios blog! I´m Silvana from Casa Magnolia and today I have a special card for you featuring some of the new products from the June release. For me, the slimline cards are special because its size requires some thinking in the design and it´s perfect for creating scenes. 

Let´s begin by the background: I cut a white cardstock panel in the slimline size (8 1/2 x 3 1/2") and stamped the Birthday Dance Confetti Stamp with embossing ink and white embossing powder. I cut three times the small frame from the Slimline Scalloped Rectangles and Alpha Diecutting System and stacked them together to make the frame. 

After that, I stamped twice one of the cupcakes from the lovely set Sweet holiday created by Kelly Taylor. I stamped them one time with black ink and the second with embossing ink and put some clear embossing powder over. I did it because I wanted to color with watercolour pencils. After I colored the images, I fussy cut pieces of one, the flowers and the cupcake liner, put some foam tape under and glued them over the second piece, to give some dimension. 

I stamped the same cupcake over vellum with white embossing powder and use the flowers in the back for a little extra detail. I did some details with a white gel pen too. 

The sentiment I chose is from the new Swanky Sentiments: Birthday which comes with a coordinating die too.  I stamped onto my favorite black cardstock with white embossing powder. 

To finish the card I put some gems from the Starry  Skies Gem Mix to add a touch of sparkle. And it´s finished! 

I love how this turned out and I realized I´ve missed doing slimlline cards! How about you? Is there a size or style of card that you haven´t done in a while? Maybe this is your moment to rediscover it and fall in love again. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today. 

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog and I´ll see you in my next post.

Enjoy your weekend and happy crafting!
