Who can resist this Sweet Slimline Baby Card? Today I am sharing a unique decorative edge card with lots of real estate – enough to fit two elephants on a card front. Lots of curvy shapes and elements to pop up on a card but I have a solution! Use 3D Foam Circles White Mix behind all the hearts and the circle sentiment.
Start on this Sweet Slimline Card Front Background
Using a light blue cardstock, die-cut a slimline card panel. To create interest, stencil around the edges with blue ink.
Layer the Card Front
The elephant-patterned paper was cut into a long card panel. Then cut a green cardstock panel slightly taller than the elephant panel but a little shorter than the stenciled panel.
Place the green panel on the slimline panel with the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispense. Then adhere the elephant panel to the right side of the green panel.
Cut the letters from the same paper pad. These will be used as a sentiment. Place a 3D Foam Circles White Mix on the back of each letter to pop them up on the left side of the card. So cute!
Little hearts were die-cut from blue decorative paper from the same paper pad. Let’s pop the hearts up with the 3D Foam Circles White Mix and randomly place them on the card. I usually pick up the foam circles using an Exacto or craft knife, this makes placement easy, and my big fingers don’t get in the way.
Create a slimline card base that is slightly smaller than the layered card panel and adhere together with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser to finish.
