Hello Sweet Friend

Hi crafters!  Here is a really quick card using the Slimline All In Ones.  Most of today's card came out of my background stash (it is a real go to for so many cards!)  I selected a piece of greenish Pixie Sparkled card for the background.  I used Green Bay and Beyond Blue for it.  I cut the Hello Sweet Friend die out of white twice.  I added another piece of Pixied card to it as a backing.  For this piece, I just used Beyond Blue.  I cut the three birdhouses out of the second die cut and added them with foam to the base piece.  I added the entire die cut with mounting foam to raise it in the centre of the background.  I cut a larger piece of white card and ran double sided tape around the edge, then sprinkled it with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz, then seated the entire card in the centre of it.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6"  x  10 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

It's beautiful Sue really beautiful, the green/blue mix of pixies with the clingfilm is my most favourite technique, then the blue with the most beautiful friend all in one on top is the show stopper, it's a lovely relaxing way to start the day thank you, hope everyone spends their day the way they hoped to, be safe and stay well, love and hugs ๐Ÿซ‚ xxx

Good Morning Sue. Ohhh yes ! ! ! Another lovely slimline card. I have stopped calling them D.L. Cards. They don't sound like a card. So prefer to call them slimline. And what a great job you have made of this one. I love it. And of course anything with pixie powder gets my vote. Thankyou for brightening my morning up Sue.
Sending hugs ๐Ÿค— and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

Hi Sue
I love your card and the sentiment is brilliant but I wouldn't be inclined to put these colours together personally but that just my personal opinion.

Morning Sue and all! This card is stunning - I love the colour combination. It puts me in mind of my great grandmother who always used to say “blue and green should never be seen, without a colour in between” lol! But I respectfully disagree with her - this is gorgeous! Take care, Colleen x
