Slimline ~ Enjoy the Simple Things

Today I'd like to share another Angie Blom Digital Design card that I made.  This one is from the set Better in Boots and as you can see I used the Slimline card design.

As with the last Angie Blom card I shared, I use her image that is laid out for printing.  While I love layering and designing my digital cards, these images that she provides are a great time saver when you are in a hurry. 

After printing on Neenah 110# card stock, I colored the flowers using my Copic markers.  I enjoy adding the light blue around the image to give it a soften look.  

I use the Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Slimline Die for the image, then matted it on a solid background paper.  I measured this part and then folded my card stock to allow about an inch extra at the bottom.  I took the next size up die cut and carefully lined up the bottom while allowing the top edge to be off the folded card.  This way when cut it doesn't cut the fold and you have the scalloped edge on the sides and bottom.  I could have shifted the image and allowed the die to cut all four sizes, then mount it on a larger card base.  This just gives it a slightly different look and helped reduce the size slightly to ensure it fits in the envelope. 

Lastly I secured the colored image and mat to the pretty die cut card base and it's ready to be sold or mailed. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
