Sharing a clean and simple mini slimline card today featuring the beautiful Spring Bouquet Stamps. The hyacinth is one of my favorite Spring flowers and I love the gorgeous details of these stamped images!
To begin this card, I cut a piece of white cardstock 3 1/4″ x 6 1/2″ for the card front. (The card base is 6 1/4″ x 6 1/2″, scored on the 6 1/2″ side at 3 1/4″ and folded in half) I inked the panel with Tumbled Glass Distress ink avoiding the outside edges and heat embossed the sentiment in black on the left side approximately 2 1/2″ from the top edge. I then adhered the panel to the card base.
Next, I inked the inside of the Woodgrain Embossing Folder with Lost Shadow Distress ink and embossed a 1 1/2″ x 3 1/4” piece of white cardstock. I adhered this piece to the bottom of the card front.
To bring a little more green and black in, I die-cut a piece of Spring Fever Paper and a piece of black cardstock using the ribbon die from the Ribbon & Lace Border Dies. I cut them to 3 1/4″ long, overlapped the green ribbon on the black ribbon and adhered them 3/8” from the bottom of the card front.
To finish, I stamped a watering can from the Watering Can Stamps on white cardstock, die-cut it using the coordinating dies and adhered it slightly overlapping the right edge. I used scissors to trim the excess from the right edge of the card. I then stamped the hyacinth, stems and leaves on white cardstock and die-cut them using the coordinating dies. I applied adhesive to the back of each piece and tucked them individually inside the watering can starting with the farthest pieces to the back and working my way towards the front of the can.
I hope you enjoyed my simplistic bouquet today and thanks for stopping by!
