My first slimline card!

Happy Sunday crafty friends.  I hope you've had a good weekend and hopefully did a bit of crafting.  I went for my 2nd vaccine today (I'm very lucky to work for the NHS) and don't feel too bad at the moment but a lot of my co-workers have felt more unwell after the 2nd one than the first so I'm keeping everything crossed that I don't suffer too badly with this one.  It's worth it though as hopefully this will be our way out of this pandemic/lockdown. 

I'm here to share my first ever slimline card (I know behind the times as always lol!).  I made this card recently for one of my lovely DT friends and I have to say I really loved the size and how it turned out.  I think I may make a mini slimline soon as they look a cute size too.  

When I made this card I was following an MFT sketch challenge but ran out of time to enter it - oops!

I began by stamping the 3 fun images and coloured them with my promarkers; I also added some ink blending behind the images for some contrast.  I then cut 3 circles from another piece of card and layered it over top the images with foam tape.  The sentiment was white heat embossed and cut with my trimmer.  I added some splatters and a few sequins and my card was done.  

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

SSS Wednesday challenge - fave technique (die cutting, colouring with alcohol markers)
Inkspirational challenge - word prompt: tower
MFT slimline challenge - birthday wishes

I hope you have a wonderful week.  Stay safe and take care.


Card Ingredients:

MFT - old friends (Dies to Die For)
Spellbinders Nestabilities - standard circles large
SSS - white fine detail embossing powder 
Pretty Pink Posh - sparkling clear mix sequins
Distress Oxide inks
Heffy Doodle - alcohol marker cardstock
Heffy Doodle - white cardstock
