Hello friends! This is Crystal Komara here today sharing a pair of cards in my favorite color – purple. Yes, I have a passion for purple! If you are doubting me, you can check out this purple rose card or this purple camera to see that my passion for purple runs deep.
This slimline card measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business envelope and require no additional postage. The base of my slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I matted a 8 1/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of purple cardstock directly to the card base. I printed the flowers from the Forever Moments stamp set onto white cardstock and reversed the image as well so that I would have a long wreathlike flower extending the length of my card. I used a scalloped slimline die to die cut the frame. I colored the flowers with Copic markers. I printed one of the sentiments from the same Forever Moments stamp set on white cardstock and used a 2″ circle punch to punch out the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for added sparkle.
For my second card I used the same Forever Moments stamp set, but created an A2 sized card. The base of this card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. I placed a piece of purple plaid cardstock directly to the base of the card and used the Diagonal Scalloped Stripes die from Reverse Confetti as the frame. I printed out the same two flowers from the Forever Moments stamp set and colored the images using Copic markers. I fussy cut the flowers and adhered them to the card at a diagonal. I also printed out a sentiment onto white cardstock and used a 2″ circle punch to punch the sentiment out. I adhered the sentiment to the center of the card using 3M foam adhesive. Lastly, I added a coat of Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for added sparkle.
