Slimline Cards: Be Happy

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Happy New Year to all and welcome to our first challenge of 2023: Slimline Cards.  No specific dimensions needed here, just be sure that your stamped artwork fits the slimline esthetic.

For this card, I used the Steampunk Heart stamp from Lost Coast Designs and the Be Happy clear stamps from Carmen's Veranda.  My base for this is a portion of a Gel print made with red and pink acrylic paints and a stencil.  I cut my Gel print into the slimline shape and rounded the corners before layering with a white panel.

The steampunk heart was stamped and heat embossed with white embossing powder onto a piece of clear acrylic, then cut out.  The "Be Happy" stamps were done the exact same way.  Both were attached to the card front with white glue that dries clear so does not show through the acrylic.  Final touch was a little pink flower.

Come join us as we begin a fun new year and make some slimline cards - Valentine's Day will be here soon so here's a good opportunity to make some cards full of love for all your valentines!
