Hello Mini Slimline Card
by Donna Sledzik


Hello everyone!  Today I have a mini slimline card for you using the new hot foil plates from the 2022 May release. 

I began by using the Exquisite Leaves hot foil plate and the Posh Hello hot foil plate to add gold foil to white cardstock.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out the images. Next, I used a blending brush to add Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks to the leaves.

 I die cut the Riverbank Large Layered Blooms several times from white cardstock and used Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink to color the flowers.  Instead of stacking the flowers, I decided to use them separately on my card.

To create the background for my flowers I used the Ringadings 3D embossing folder and white cardstock.   I used a blending brush and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Ink to add color to the background.  To darken the color I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink.  I spattered the background with plain water and gold ink.


I glued this to a white cardstock layer that I die cut using the Slim Pinpoint Burst Plate.  This was adhered to a navy cardstock mat and glued to a white card base.

Next, I glued the flowers and leaves to the card and used foam tape adhere the word "Hello".


To finish the card, I inked the flower centers with Vintage Photo ink, glued them in place, and used Gold Nuvo Drops to add some dimension to the flower centers.

Well that's it for today!  I hope you have a great weekend!







Your flowers are just gorgeous, love the colors and the background is very pretty too!

Beautiful card Donna! I love the colors especially on the flowers.
