Today’s card features a whole lot of first…my first slimline card, my first slider card, my first time using Lawn Fawn’s Chunky Glitter. In May when Lawn Fawn released its Large Slimline with Sliders dies I had to snatch them up. I’m so excited to use these awesome dies and for my first card I thought it would be fun to pull out the oldie but goodie Lawn Fawn’s Plane and Simple stamp set.
To create the scene elements, I used the smallest die from Lawn Fawn’s Large Slimline with Sliders to die cut a piece of Strathmore’s Bristol Smooth cardstock and ink blended Distress Oxide Tumbled Glass, Broken China, and Blueprint Sketch inks to make the sky. Next, I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Mountain Borders to die cut mountains out of Bristol Smooth cardstock and added color to them using Distress Oxide Milled Lavender, Pumice Stone, and Hickory Smoke inks. For the snowcaps, I used Stitched Mountain Borders to die cut the shapes and then ink blended Distress Oxide Milled Lavender ink to add a bit of color.
Background and Slider
Using the largest die in Lawn Fawn’s Large Slimline with Sliders set I die cut a piece of white cardstock for my bottom card panel. Next, I used one of the dies in Trinity Stamps’ Slimline Card Series: Scalloped Card Panels and Banners to die cut Lawn Fawn’s Pixie Dust cardstock which I adhered the sky panel to using foam tape. However, before doing so I used the straight die from Large Slimline with Sliders to cut the slider within the sky. Next, I adhered double sided tape to two of Taylored Expression’s On the Right Track Discs and then attached the plane and banner to the discs so they would slide back and forth.
For the sentiment, I used several words from Lawn Fawn’s Plane and Simple stamp set. I stamped “plane” using Distress Oxide Broken China ink and “and simple” using VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink. After that, I die cut the sentiment using one of the dies from Simon Says Stamp’s Sentiment Labels dies and then used the largest die Large Slimline with Sliders to die cut the edge so the stitching detail would be continuous. To complete the sentiment, I stamped “You’re the Best” with VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink onto the banner the plane is towing. I love how the little banner is hidden behind the clouds and then slides out to complete the sentiment and bring a smile to the recipient.
For finishing details, I added Lawn Fawn’s Chunky Glitter along the tops of the mountain caps and I went over the blue marker details on the clouds with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. Then, I added a layer of Ranger’s Glossy Accents to the yellow parts of the plane to make them shine. Lastly, I sprinkled the card with Studio Katia’s Icy Sparkle Crystals – these are GORGEOUS! I love all the sparkle and shine these details give to the card.
Thanks for stoping by and spending time with me today!
