Take a look at what these new mini slimline dies can do on a single color card!
I just absolutely adore how these new mini slimline dies from Rubbernecker work together AND how they are such a perfect scale for so many of their other dies. Just look at how I was able to nest that stitched die inside the scalloped frame. They are so perfectly designed that mixing and matching them – and using that fabulous Insert Slimline Die design they came up with – is a breeze and makes creating cards like this one so much easier.
For this project I used the Mini Slimline Nested with Stitch, Mini Slimline Tab Scallop Holes, Mixable Flower Stack and Flourish.
Mini Slimline Card Base and Mini Slimline Frames
- 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 a 5.50″ x 3.00″ piece of white cardstock, place inside the embossing folder and run through the machine.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the embossed layer and attach it to the card base.
- Cut the largest Mini Slimline Tab Scallop Holes using white cardstock.
- Place the scalloped rectangle face up on the cutting platform, line up the second largest die from the Mini Slimline Nested with Stitch over it and cut to create the frame opening.
- Place the stitched rectangle face up on the cutting platform, line up the third die from the Mini Slimline Nested with Stitch over it and cut to create a frame opening.
- Turn the the scalloped frame face down on the work surface, nest the stitched frame inside the scallop and attach the two frames together using double stick tape.
- Turn the frame face down, apply thin strips of mounting tape around the border and attach it to the card base. :
Flowers and Flourishes
- Use white cardstock to cut two sets of Mixable Flower Stack (5112D).
- Use deckle scissors to cut around each petal to create a natural looking flower.
- Place the flowers face down on the molding pad, push down and roll over each petal using a large round stylus.
- Turn the flowers face up and push down in the center using a small round stylus to push the petals up.
- Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents making sure to offset each layers.
- Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of each of the two flowers and attach them to the card base.
- Use white cardstock to cut the Flourish sections, tuck them under the flowers and attach using glossy accents.
- Finish by adding a white pearl to the center of each flower.
Check out this Flower Shaping Video that shows how I form and attach the sections together to create a dimensional beautiful flower. The video shows a different flower die being used but it is the exact same process.
I just can’t get enough of these mini slimline dies and if you haven’t tried out making a mini slimline card, I highly recommend you do, even if you don’t have any of the dies yet. It’s SUCH a fun sized card and gives you a whole new design angle to making your own gorgeous cards.
I adore white on white cards. This one is gorgeous!
It is a beautiful card Kittie, my Son gets married in June, so will have a go and see how it turns out. Cheers and thankyou, Marilyn.
