Now on to the card I've made for today. It's no secret that I love a good slimline card. I was so excited to see some awesome new slimline dies in this new release. I've used one of them to frame up a collage of tropical florals and floilage.
My slimline card base measures 8.5" long by 3.5" tall. I used several dies from the Tropical Bouquets Honey Cuts to create lots of leaves and Plumeria flowers to fill the front of the card. I used an ink smooshing technique to color panels of water color card stock and then cut out the shapes from that.
For the pink and orange panel I used Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon, and Wild Honey.
For the green panel I used Twisted Citron, Lucky Clover, and Peacock Feathers.
I arranged all the leaves randomly with some going off the edge. Then I spattered the card front and leaves with some thinned green paint. I added the plumeria flowers which a two layers for a fun dimensional look. Lastly I added the scalloped frame and hello which are from the Slimline Sentiments Eyelet Honey Cuts.
I've made a few other cards showcasing more fun stamps and dies from the Hello Summer Release:
This card features the new "free bee" with a $75 purchase.
To create this Hawaiian inspired card I've used the Tropical Bouquet Honey Cuts, the Luau Stamp Set, Wish You Were Here Stamp Set, and Slimline Sentiments Honey Cuts.
