Heart of Gold Slimline Card - Festive Friday FF0132

 Festive Friday is a new card making and paper crafting challenge site for me and I thought I would give it a try and make a card for the challenge.

For #FF0132 the festivity is Global Pay It Forward Day which is on April 28th, 2023. The Inspo List has 10 items on it, and the challenge is to select 3 from this list and incorporate them into my card.

Here are the 10 items:

        Kindness Sentiment                                                                                                    Gift Tag                                                                                                                        Ripples                                                                                                                        Hearts                                                                                                                          Hands                                                                                                                          Sim line card                                                                                                                Alcohol markers                                                                                                          Blue                                                                                                                              Envelope                                                                                                                     Mini treat package

I chose to use the following:  Blue, Slim line card, and a Kindness Sentiment.


On a 8 1/2 by 3 1/4" Boho Blue card base, is added a Basic white layer embossed with a 3D "Sunshine" embossing folder (non SU).
On this embossed surface is added a bunch of Marigolds created using 2 step stamping using Boho Blue ink. The non detailed flower base was inked with boho blue ink, stamped off and then stamped onto a piece of Basic White card stock.  The detailed stamp was also inked with full strength Boho Blue ink and stamped over top of the base image. This was die cut with the corresponding die.  The stem and leaf were stamped with Garden Green ink and also die cut.

Both these die cut images were added to the card front with dimensionals.
The image was stamped with Boho blue ink and die cut using  a Tasteful Labels Die" and added below the image.

To make the 1" white/pool party ribbon coordinate with the colours of the card, I coloured 1/2" (the pool party side) of it using a Boho Blue Stampin' blend.
The card was finished using 2023-2025 In Color dots.
Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Marigold Moments
Inks: Boho blue, Garden Green, Boho blue stampin blend
Papers:  Boho Blue, Basic White
Accessories:  Marigold Moments die, Tastetful Labels die, 1" white/pool party ribbon (colored ), Dimensionals, 3D Sunshine Embossing Folder.

I love all of that gorgeous texture on your slimline card. I also love that you doubled up the sentiment layer to add another element to bring these two colors together. Fabulous card. So glad you shared it with us at Festive Friday this week
