Wooden Heart Slimline

Hello there, Christine here.  I'm sharing a slimline card that was made with non-slimline stamps to show you that you can stretch your stamps to get the look that you want on your card.  I used the Springtime Banners, Woodgrain Background, Little Angel and the Have Heart stamp sets.

First I die cut a slimline heart panel (Trinity Stamps) onto a piece of 110lb Neenah Solar White Cardstock and made an impression of the same heart panel onto another piece of the same type of cardstock.  

For the die cut panel, I first ink blended tea dye distress ink over the entire panel. I then placed the inked panel in my stamp positioner and stamped the Woodgrain Background twice with Over Coffee ink (Catherine Pooler) as seemlessly as I could (you will see on the photo below that it doesn't match up completely).  This is totally ok though, I knew that I would simply cover it up with elements afterwards.

For the embossed heart panel that is shown underneath the woodgrain panel, I first ink blended the entire panel with spun sugar distress oxide ink.  Since I had impression of where each heart needed to be, this served as my guide to stamping the wooden heart image with the Have Heart stamp.  I then covered the entire area with Versamark Ink and heat embossed a new embossing powder from WOW called Halo (Catherine Pooler)- it allows you to make any color underneath glittery! I took another photo so you could see the shine.

Finally to finish up the card I die cut a bunch of images from  the Springtime Banners colored with different copics. I used E31 & E34 for the birds & nest, YG63, YG61, G28 & G24 for the greens, R20 for the berries. I added a die cut sentiment from the Little Angel stamp set, which I think was perfect for the card. I then simply added a few heart embellishments (Trinity Stamps) to tie the card together and done!

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!
