Use Nested Mini Slimline Card Dies For Easy Layers

Another adorable card made with mini slimline card dies!

I am loving making cards with these new mini slimline card dies and the nested sets are making me so happy! There are four sets – stitched, deckle, scallop and the set I used here with scalloped holes. Who knew a little hole in each scallop could add such a pretty design element to a die cut? Well, Rubbernecker sure did! Just look at how pretty the layers are on this card!

heart shaped paper flowers and nested mini slimline card dies were used to create this quick and easy handmade card in red and white with pops of green

Mini Slimline Card Base and Layers

  • Use white cardstock to cut a 6.00″ x 7.00″ layer and score down the center to create a 6.00″ x 3.50″ card base.
  • Cut the Mini Slimline Tab Scallop Holes using white cardstock. 
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the largest layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Cut a 5.75″ x 3.25″ layer of designer paper, apply ATG adhesive to the back and attach it to the eyelet layer.
  • Dust the smallest eyelet layer using an Embossing Magic bag to reduce static. 
  • Secure the eyelet layer and the Kittie Says Spring Time sentiment stamp in the MISTI and stamp the sentiment using Nocturne ink.
  • Apply clear embossing powder to the sentiment and heat with a heat gun. 
  • Attach the sentiment layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.

Heart Bouquet

  • Use red cardstock to cut out the Slimline OPC Hearts and lay the hearts face down on the molding pad.
  • Gently roll over the hearts using a large round stylus to add a rounded form.
  • Use green cardstock to cut two Flower #3 to use for stems.
  • Trim a little off each flower to make it small enough to fit behind the hearts.
  • Attach the hearts to the trimmed flower sections of the stems using glossy accents.
  • Trim off the large lower stem of flowers and attach it over the large top stem of flowers using glossy accents.
  • Cut a thin 1/8″ strip of green cardstock, cut into four 3.00″ sections and attach them to the bottom of the bouquet stems using glossy accents. 
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the heart bouquet and attach it to the card base.
  • Create a white organza multi loop bow and attach it to cover the section where the two flower stems are connected.  Pro Tip:  Check out my Multi Loop Bow Video if you would like to see how I make my bows.
