Hello and happy Saturday! It's Jennifer here on the blog to share a spring time themed card with you today! And I'm going to show you the techniques I used! Slimline cards are very popular right now and I have to say I enjoy creating them. I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock 3 1/2 x 8 1/2, scoring at a half inch.
I set aside my base to paint the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishment Shapes with white acrylic paint. I did not worry about coverage as the white would be my underlying color. Once my paint was dry, I applied a generous amount of crackle effect to the surface and allowed to dry.
Next, I cut a 3 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece from a 12 x 12 Acrylic Sheet. Using the 4x6 Quarterfoil Stencil and a spatula, I applied modeling paste to the surface of my acrylic. I only removed the protective film to the front while allowing my paste to dry. This ensures keeping the acrylic clean and free of any unwanted smudges.
After my modeling paste was dry, I repositioned my stencil over the acrylic and blended three coordinating distress oxides over the surface.
After ensuring my crackle was dry, I painted a light coat of blue chalk paint over the surface of the Bunnies Chipboard Embellishments. I then added buttons for tails and used a punch for a cute bow tie. I popped the second bunny up using foam dots for extra dimension.
Here is a close up of the modeling paste/distress oxide effect with the stencil. I love how it turned out!
Last, using my Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive I added paper flowers to the top of my card for extra spring time accent!
