Stampin' Up! Back On Your Feet Small Slimline Card


This slimline card was too fun to make, since it involved 3 of my favorite techniques and one of my favorite stamp sets!  Back on Your Feet is the perfect set when creating a card for someone going through a rough time or is sick or injured.  The critters are adorable and the sentiments perfect!

Card Base ~ Thick Basic White Cardstock ~ 6-1/4" x 6-1/2", score at 3-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3" x 6"
Layer 2 ~ Vellum Cardstock ~ 3" x 6"
3 scraps of Basic White Cardstock at least 1-3/4" x 1-3/4"
small scrap of Old Olive Cardstock 

  • Stamp the critters on scraps of Basic White CS with Tuxedo Black Memento ink
  • Use Stampin' Blends, 99% alcohol, and an ink blower to create the alcohol ink background on the vellum.  (If this is a new technique for you, watch the video near the bottom of this post)
  • Color the critters with Stampin' Blends
  • Apply Liquid Glue to the back of the Vellum with a Sponge Dauber.  Then, adhere the vellum to Layer 1
  • Attach Layer 1 to the front of your card with Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Trim the critters down to 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" and attach each one to the Vellum with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Stamp 'sigh...' on the scrap of Old Olive CS with Versamark ink.  Use Embossing Powder and the Heat Tool to emboss. 
  • Trim around 'sigh...' with Paper Snips and attach to the front of the card, as shown, using Liquid Glue

For the inside of the card, stamp the sentiment at the top with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  If desired, go ahead and stamp the giraffe, also.  Color the giraffe with Stampin' Blends to match the one on the front of the card.
