Hey crafty people, and a happy Saturday! I’m back with some inspiration using the awesome ‘You Rock’ stamp & die sets from Trinity Stamps products to create a super trendy mini slimline card.
As soon as I saw the You Rock stamp set from Trinity I knew I needed to have it! My husband is big into music and whilst he definitely sits on the Vinyl side of the fence, I knew that this would make an awesome card for him!!
Stamp it up!
I embossed the tape and music notes, in black, onto some grey cardstock.
Adding some really simple shadowing with my warm grey Copics is a super easy way to give your die cuts more depth and dimension. Honestly try it out on half of your image and compare the difference!
I used red, orange and yellow Copics to add colour to the three stripes across the middle; this just felt like the right colour combo to go for. I thought it was a vague memory, but now I’m thinking that it might have been VHS that I’m thinking of?!
…and cut it out!
I used the sentiment & notes dies to cut from black glossy mirror cardstock and I ran a black memento marker around the edges to cover the white core of the paper. This just gives a much more aesthetically pleasing finish.
Then I cut the stamped & coloured images using the coordinating die set.
Mini Slimline Card Size?
As soon as I get my Neenah 110lb delivery from the Paper Tree, I always cut and score a whole bunch of card bases; I trimmed one of my slimline card bases down to be 3.5inch x 6.5inch. I am loving these mini slimline cards right now!! It’s fun to create something in a different size than the standard a2 that I typically make. Sometimes I feel like a full size slimline is just *too much* space to fill though, so these mini slimline cards are the perfect middle ground!
Super Simple Background
I made a super simple background by blending Rockin’ Red, Orange Twist & Limoncello. This makes for a perfect backdrop for my cassette, music notes and some Starlight Sequins, also from Trinity.
After coming back the next day I decided that I wanted a black frame; so I just drew one using a ruler and fineliner.
I hope you have a lovely, safe & happy week!
