I created a slim line card, because I have been seeing them everywhere!! I never thought I would create anything but a standard sized card, but the Slim Line is so popular now, that it has become one of the new standards! I used heavy cardstock for my card base. I cut a piece of the decorative paper from the clematis 12x12 paper collection, 1/16th shorter all around from the 8.5 x 4 inch card. Just slightly larger than the standard Slim Line card, and adhered it to the cover of my card.  I love the lattice designs on the papers. This one had some of the gorgeous purple Clematis that I love so much! I matched some of my color sprays to the flowers that are printed on the paper. 

Here is a closeup of the flowers and leaves. I adore the Leafy Accent vines. They are fantastic for fillers and tucking under flowers. I used the Sentiment stamp for my title on the card. Underneath I die cut one of the designs from the Elaborate Ovals Frame die, and mounted my sentiment on top of it. I raised it up from the card with some thick pop dots. There was a decorative peice on the end of the ornate frame, so I just cut it off. The frame still looks beautiful! You would never know the peice was even more elaborate!

I love purple Clematis. Instead of ink pads, this time I used spray colors. I sprayed the colors on my glass matt, then added a spritz of water for a watercolor effect. once they were almost dried, I placed them in the 3D mold and ran it through my Bigshot. After they dried, I painted on some thinned decoupage glue and sprinkled on Rajni Chawlas Crystal Clear for sparkle. For the middle of the flowers, I used some yellow construction paper which I cut into very thin strips . I rolled up the strips very tightly using a quill tool, and glued them to the flowers. I poked holes in the centers of the flowers, and pulled it though just a tad. Then I turned the flower upside down and hot glued the middles to the flowers. This secured it so it didn't fall through. I scrunched them a bit once they were secured. 

Thank you for joining us this month for the hop. Dont forget to leave some love on each of the designers blogs!! Next stop is Monica's Blog! See you next month!!
