Eclectic Day – jkcards

Eclectic Day

Happy Friday the 13th! I didn’t realize it was Friday the 13th until I looked at my phone this morning. It has been extremely hot and humid here for the past few days. It rained yesterday evening for about 20 minutes and was even more humid after that! It’s supposed to be a little better today but not much. Maybe some more time in the craft closet today to stay out of the heat?!

My card for today features a layering die set from Concord & 9th and is a mini slimline. I started by creating my background ink blending some Distress Oxide Inks in Mermaid Lagoon and Mowed Lawn onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with my Blending Brushes. That is adhered to a card base cut to 6 1/4 by 6 1/2 and folded in half. The finished card base is 6 1/4 by 3 1/4. Next up I used the Concord & 9th Plaid Card Front Thin Die to cut a piece of Black 110lb Card Stock. I trimmed it from it’s A2 size to fit better on my mini slimline card and adhered it with Bearly Arts Glue. My flowers are cut out using the Concord & 9th Eclectic Garden Dies from Rose Chintz and Garden Green. I added the flowers to the stems and leaves and then used my Prismacolor Pencils to add some details. They are also adhered to the card with Bearly Arts Glue. For the sentiment I heat embossed one from the Concord & 9th Eclectic Garden Stamp Set in Hero Arts White Embossing powder onto another piece of Black 110lb and trimmed it with my Paper Trimmer. It’s added to the card with 3M Foam Tape. It needed something more so I dug through my stash and found some Goosebumps that I got years ago and added them to the flower centers.

I love the envelope dies from Pinkfresh so I made a coordinating envelope using the Mini Slimline one. A nice simple card that would perfect for a birthday! I hope that you enjoyed my project for today. Thanks so much for spending a little time here and I hope that you have a fabulous weekend!
