Slimline Hugs Valentine
by Angie Cimbalo

Hello, it's Angie here today! I hope you've enjoyed the 2021 Memory Box Valentines Day release and blog blitz this past week and remember,  you still have until tonight, January 10 at 11:59 pm EST, to leave a comment on any of the posts (Monday through Friday) for your chance to win the corresponding giveaway.

Today I’m using the "Twiggy Hugs" die again, which you can win from Donna's post on Tuesday.  I combined that die with the "Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate", the "Scallop Pinpoint Heart Loving Cut Out" die set and the "Pointy Pine Needle Sprig" die to make my slimline card for today.   I just love making Valentine's Day cards and the new release is filled with lots of dies to make beautiful cards!

Here's how I made my card:

1)  I first took a long piece of card stock and ink blended my background using the following Distress Oxide ink:  Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans, Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Spun Sugar.  

2) After ink blending it I sprayed it with water and let it dry.  Next, I ran it through by Gemini Junior with the new "Slim Pinpoint Heart Plate" die and then die cut the "Twiggy Hugs" from the bottom section.

3)  I also cut the "Twiggy Hugs" from white and black card stock and glued them all together, stacked slightly offset for dimension. Here's a closer look at the word die:

4)  I added some white gel pen dots and spots (I used #10 gelly roll pen)  randomly to the ink blended sections of the card.  Here's a closer look at the ink blending at the top:

5)  Next, I used the smallest die from the "Scallop Pinpoint Loving Cutout" die set to cut small hearts from 2 shades of "Delicate Pastel Glitter Paper" and adhered them on top of some of the pinpoint hearts created with the slimline die.  The glitter paper pad is so gorgeous!  

6)  Lastly I added three die cut "Pointy Pine Needle Springs" cut from white glitter paper in the spaces left on the card.  Once I had my top panel complete, I adhered it to my slimline card base which is 3.5" by 8.5".

Here's one last look at my card:
