Stampin' Up! Painted Poppies hello Card


Hello!  Welcome to my blog!  Today's card was inspired by Sketch 487 at Freshly Made Sketches.
This simple, slimline sketch has so many possibilities! 

My slimline cards are not the usual size for slimlines, but a little smaller.  I like this size because I can easily use half of a 6" x 6" piece of DSP for the card front. I also like this size because it perfectly fits in a 6-3/4" security envelope that I usually find at Target.

Small Slimline Card Base ~ 6-1/2" x 6-1/4", scored at 3-1/4"
DSP ~ 3" x 6" and 3/8" x 6" (inside)
Polished Pink CS ~ 2-1/8" x 5-1/8"
Basic White CS ~ 2" x 5"

1. Using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamp the poppies twice.
2.  Color the poppies in using Polished Pink Blends.
3. Stamp 'hello' in the upper right corner, above the poppies.
4. Use your favorite adhesive to attach each layer of the card front. 
5.  Add a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels to the front of the card. 

For the inside of this card, I simply centered a strip of DSP along the bottom. 

If desired, stamp poppies on the front of the envelope and color them in.

I hope you enjoyed this card!  Please contact me if you have any questions or to request a catalog (if you don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and live in the USA).
