Vintage Sunflower Happy Birthday Mini Slimline Card Tutorial

Thank you so much for joining me for this Vintage Sunflower Happy Birthday Mini Slimline Card Tutorial, Let's jump right in.

I created the bases for my mini slimline cards by trimming down a piece of cardstock to six by six inches and scoring it at the three-inch mark. I also cut down a black matte to be 1/8th of an inch smaller than my base and will later cut the kraft stock to be 1/4 of an inch smaller than the base.

I trimmed a piece of kraft stock to six by six inches and stamped the Sunflower image in black ink that I heat set before using the coordinating stencil set to colour in the image. I used four Distress Oxide inks with the four stencils in Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Cracked Pistachio and Lucky Clover. Then I cut the panel down and wrapped twine around the panel and added a bow. For the sentiment, I white heat embossed Happy Birthday, trimmed them down into a thin label, and added it above the twine. I added some yellow gems around the card for a final touch and called them finished. I am pretty happy with how these cards turned out even with the more muted colour palette.

Thank you so much for taking this quick look at my Whimsical Rainbow and Roses A2 Card Tutorial. If you would like a more in-depth look please check out the video below, I also have a complete supplies list in case you want to know exactly what I used. I hope to see you again very soon!!
