Distress Oxide Ink Blended Mini Slimline Cards and Envelopes
Hello Everyone and thank you for joining me, I have these two really fun and colourful Distress Oxide blended Mini Slimline cards to share with you this week, Let's jump right in.
As always I like to cut down my cardstock so I know what I am working with, I have two pieces of cardstock cut to 6 inches by 6 inches for the bases of my cards and scored at the 3 inch mark making my bases 6 inches by 3 inches. I also trimmed out a black matte to 1/4 of an inch smaller than my base and the panel I plan to blend on which is 1/4 of an inch smaller than my black matte.
Next I blended on three Distress Oxide colours to each panel, Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry on the first and Kitsch Flamingo, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio on the second panel. I then flicked on some perfect pearls I have mixed up in a mini mister bottle onto the background and set them aside to dry.
Next I brought out some Heavy weight Velum and heat embossed three butterflies from the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Butterflies stamp set and heat set them until they were smooth and melted, I did this twice so I had three butterflies for both cards. I also own the matching dies so I then cut out the butterflies with my die cutting machine. I then adhered just the center of my butterflies in a row onto my blended panel and added my sentiment on top of the center butterfly with some foam strips for some added dimension.
I then adhered my coloured panels to the black matte and card bases. If you would like a more in-depth look at how I created these cards or the matching envelopes please check out the video down below. I also have a full supplies list below the video if you want to know exactly what I used. Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again!!
