Hey, everyone! Happy World Cardmaking Day! In celebration, Taylored Expressions is doing a mini release of products with a fall theme. I have a trio of Mini Slim cards to share with you today that I created with the new release products!
The products for the World Cardmaking Day/Falling for You release are available to purchase RIGHT NOW in the Taylored Expressions webstore!
I stenciled the Triple Slim Falling For You Layering Stencil set onto a Toffee cardstock from the Triple Slim Paper Pack that measures 9 3/4" x 5 3/4". For the stenciled designs I used Cherry Pop shaded with Mulled Wine, Honey shaded with Sweet Potato Pie, Avocado shaded with Olive, and Mushroom shaded with Mocha. I also added a touch of Mocha shading throughout the images to give everything a more rustic look. The veins are stamped onto the leaves with Chocolate Truffle ink with the clear stamps included in the Triple Slim set.
Once all of the images were stenciled, I cut the panels apart, trimming every 3 1/4" along the long side. Each panel is die cut with the largest Stitched Mini Slim Stacklets die and added to a Mini Slim Mulled Wine card base. The sentiments from the Happy Harvest stamp set are stamped with Chocolate Truffle ink and I cut out the 'give thanks' sentiment with the coordinating die so that it would stand out on the all over background design.
I cut out the extra leaves using the Fall Flurry dies from Mulled Wine, Honey, Olive, and Mocha (for the acorn caps) cardstock. The leaves are shaded with Mocha ink and splatters are added to everything with Copic Opaque White ink and Chocolate Truffle liquid watercolor. I added the leaves and acorns to the cards with foam squares to pop them up a bit and added Bits & Pieces - Gold Drip Drops for a finishing touch.
