Spring Slimline

Hey everyone - I'm the featured designer at Die Cut Divas today, sharing a slimline with Sunny Studio products! Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper - Paper Studio Brights; Neenah White;
Momenta Watercolor; Tim Holtz Menagerie;
scrap of pink Heidi Swapp glitter paper
Dies - Sunny Studio Slimline Pennant Dies.
Stamps - Sunny Studio A Good Egg (with dies)
Other - Copic Markers, Stickles

If you want fabulous products and great service, check out our March sponsor, Sunny Studio. I've been a satisfied customer since 2016. When I suggested the theme of slimline cards for the Divas to use in March, I already owned 3 Sunny Studio slimline die sets. A fourth one came out January 8th and I promptly ordered it, deciding on the spot to make a pennant-shaped card. I cut two of the large pennants and scored the back one to hinge the opening. I used the next sized pennants to cut two layers. There's also a fourth narrow pennant, great for sentiments or to cut down for little flags. The set also contains two styles of scalloped borders - an excellent value!! 

One of my earliest slimline purchases was the Scalloped Frames set, which includes sentiment dies. I used the "greetings" from that set, combined with the "spring" from the new Layered Basket die set. The little tulip die came free with an order but can be purchased in a mini set to which I linked in the supply list. The grass came from the Slimline Nature Borders set. My chick in the egg is from a favorite stamp set I purchased 5 years ago; finally got the coordinating dies last year - well worth it!!

Had to laugh - I showed my mom this card and she wasn't very enthusiastic about it. "What don't you like?" I asked. She wouldn't be specific - hope you all can find something you like about it! I think it's a a very happy card!! ­čśë

That's it from me. Thanks for stopping and the Divas & I hope to see your slimline card in the Diva gallery this month!! Please use a die cut of some kind and link up by March 31st at 9pm Pacific time.

Special thanks to Mendi at Sunny Studio for her kindness and generosity, including a $15 prize to our random winner (look for the announcement on April 3rd). Happy crafting!!
