Hey there creative folks! Today, I am sharing a bright and summery slimline card made featuring the Simple Strips dies from Pretty Pink Posh.
To begin, I chose five colors of cardstock (six if you count white): Hero Arts Azalea, Papertrey Ink Berry Sorbet, Lawn Fawn Fake Tan, Papertrey Ink Bright Buttercup, and Gina K Key Lime. I have a lot of cardstock y’all. I feel like I could do cards like this one for the next year and barely make a dent. I have more on order 🥴
I didn’t separate the dies in order to make die cutting easier. I die cut each color two times with the die cluster. Next, I cut a panel from Neenah Solar White 80# and used glue to adhere strips on the diagonal of the panel. When I was about half way done adhering strips, I trimmed off the excess. Do this before you finish adhering strips or you’ll have all four sides with overhanging cardstock, which makes it impossible to line up straight in your paper trimmer.
After finishing adhering strips to the background, I trimmed the remaining edges and then adhered it to a white card base.
Using the Hi Shaker die, I cut it six times. Once for each color and once for white. I trimmed the word “hi” from the frames and then glued them together and then adhered it to the background.
On a sheet of Neenah Solar White 80# cardstock, I stamped a sentiment from the Simple Sentiments stamp set using Gina K Key Lime ink. I then trimmed down the sentiment and cut the banner shape of the sentiment. I used thin foam tape to adhere the sentiment under the “hi” of the Hi Shaker die.
To finish, I used the Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix to add embellishments to the card.
That’s it for today’s card. I’ll see you on the next one and thanks for stopping by.
