November is a great month to celebrate all the things we are thankful for. Today, Design Team member Crystal Komara is sharing a slimline card she created featuring the new digital stamp set “Such A Blessing.” The “Such a Blessing” stamp set is from the latest digital stamp release, Gather Together. Continue reading to learn how I made this card inspired by this month’s mood board.
First, let’s begin by taking a look at this month’s mood board:
I love everything about these colors! The rust, pink and eggplant hues and so dreamy. Add in small touches of gold and you have pure fall elegance.
To start with, this slimline card measures 8 1/2″ x 3 1/2″. Slimline cards are designed to fit inside a regular #10 business sized envelope and require no additional postage. The base of my slimline card is made from 80 lb. Neenah Solar White Smooth cardstock. This is my go-to cardstock for everything. It can be used for card bases, die cutting, Copic Coloring, ink blending, heat embossing and so much more!
Next, I used a slimline die to create the stitched frame on white cardstock. Then, I layered this white stitched frame onto a piece of blackberry bliss cardstock and cut it to size to give the white frame a purple border. I also selected the “you are such a blessing” sentiment and placed it just above the line of pumpkins. After that, I set to work creating the digital image.
To create the long row of pumpkins, I printed out the digital pumpkin image from the “Such a Blessing” stamp set and repeated the image multiple times and in different sizes. Next, I colored the image using a variety of Copic markers in yellow, orange, peach, pink, raspberry and brown. Then I adhered both layers of the card together with 3M foam adhesive.
Thanks for visiting and letting me share my slimline card. Have a wonderfully creative day! Additionally, for more inspiration, you can follow me on my website, Instagram, Facebook and on my YouTube channel.
