Hello! This week's design team post over on the Scrapping Cottage blog showcases the newly released Slimline dies. This release is a wonderful selection of slimline dies that are perfect for creating all occasion cards. They are all on sale too!The Leafy Background Slimline die set was used to cut out the background for my card. I created an ink blended background and spritzed it with water. Once it was dry, I used the die to cut it out. I also cut out the adorable Bluebird and the Nested Stitched Scallop Oval and shaded them with Oxide Inks.The die cut panel was adhered to a white slimline card base. The contrast of the colors really makes the leafy background pop.
The bluebird and branch were nestled inside the die cut oval fitting almost perfectly.
The oval was then affixed to the center of the card base.
I stamped a whimsical sentiment on a piece of card stock and trimmed it into a hand cut flag. The flag was added underneath the oval.Here are the die sets used on my card, available in the store:
