Pretty & Pink Slimline Card

Happy Sunday, my friends!!
I know I'm not always the most girly-girl out there but I am a tremendous lover of all things Pink and I absolutely loooooove making pretty things. So today I wanted to combine the two in this beautiful slimline card. Let me show you how I did it...


Supplies Used
Flawless Collection (Authentique)
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Tim Holtz Limitations Stamp & Die Set (Sizzix)
Sharon Callis Crafts- Venetian Lace Die  (Personal Impressions)
Leaf Die (Diamond Press)
Versafine- Onyx Black Ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Craft)
Water Pen Brush 
Mega Runner (Xyron)
 MISTI (My Sweet Petunia)
110 lb. White Cardstock (Accent)
110 Black Cardstock (Recollections)
Cutterbee Scissors (EK Success)
Tim Holtz Paper Distresser (Tonic)
Paper Trimmer
Wooden Dowel

I started with a couple of sheets of Authentique's Flawless Collection, this collection is very gorgeous and romantic!  I 'll be making a slimline card so my trimmed my card panels to the following measurements...
Black Cardstock Base: 9 1/4" x 7 3/4" (9 1/4" x 3 7/8"- Folded)
White Cardstock Mat: 9" x 3 5/8"
Flawless One (Pink Flower) Paper: 8 7/8" x 3 1/2" 
Flawless Three (Black Damask ) Paper: 8 7/8" x 3 1/2" 
I used my Xyron Mega Runner to layer and attach the white cardstock mat onto the card base. Then layered the black damask paper onto the white mat.

With the last layer, I made an incision and used my paper distresser tool to rough up the inside edges. 

Next, I used a wooden dowel to roll/ curl the edges outward.

 Then repeated the same thing on the opposite end. I made sure that my slits were diagonal from each other for balance.

I attached this last layer onto the card, right over the black damask patterned paper. I made sure that the paper aligned perfectly so that only black peeked out through the distressed slits I made. Then set the card to the side.

I used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp this gorgeous butterfly and sentiment from Tim Holt's Limitations Stamp and die set onto 140lb Mixed Media Paper using Versafine- Onyx Black Ink .

I colored the butterfly using Derwent Inktense Pencils and blended out the color using a water brush pen.

I used the matching dies from the set to die cut both the butterfly and sentiment with my Sizzix Big Shot.

while I had my machine out, I also die cut the smaller frame and inner oval from the Sharon Callis Venetian Lace die set out of black cardstock. I cut out 3 sets of these frames and adhered them together to get a thick, dimensional, and sturdy frame.

Then, with more black cardstock, I cut several stemmed leaves.

Before going on I also curled the wired stems of my Pink Small Curly Roses and White Large Round Roses

Then I gathered all my parts and pieces together. I attached the frame onto the card front. Then trimmed and attached my leaves. Then, with a strong clear drying liquid glue, I attached my Pink Small Curly Roses and White Large Round Roses.

Lastly, I attached adhesive foam to the back of my butterfly and sentiment and attached it to the center of the frame.

And here in my Pretty & Pink beauty...

These flowers are so sweet!! They look so soft and delicate!

And I'm always in awe of the gorgeous details and texture that goes into these flowers.

Look how beautiful they are...

They always give my card making stunning results!

I hope you enjoyed today's project and that it inspires you to create something beautiful yourself!

Thanks for stopping by and as always...
