The Spot Challenge #151 - Slim Line Card with Stampin' Up! Birds and Branches Bundle

 Hello and Happy Tuesday!  It finally warmed up here and is beginning to feel like Middle Tennessee again!  We had 55 degrees on Saturday and the sun shone bright.  All of the snow has finally melted and I hope we don't see any more snow any time soon!

Over at the Spot this week, we have a fun slim line card challenge...

I decided to pull out my Birds and Branches Bundle because I had an idea... 

I'm not sure that my slim line is the same measurements as everyone else makes them.  I cut my Coastal Cabana 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock to 8-1/2" x 7" and scored the 7" side at 3-1/2".  It makes a nice size that fits perfectly in a business envelope (I'm not a fan of making envelopes!).  I added a layer of 8" x 3" Bermuda Bay Cardstock as a Matt and my top layer is the beautiful woodgrain DSP from the Tasteful Textures DSP that was cut at 7-3/4" x 2-3/4".  I then used my stitched shapes dies to cut out 3 circles out of the woodgrain panel.  I used mini dimensionals to top of the woodgrain layer and then inserting the circles back into the holes with multipurpose adhesive.  I stamped the birds nests in Soft Suede onto Crumb Cake Cardstock and cut off a little of the sides of them so they would insert into the holes easily.  The birds were stamped onto Basic White Cardstock in Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay Ink.  I added some greenery from the coordinating dies in Just Jade.  The felt flowers from the Flower Cactus Product Medley were added with Multipurpose adhesive onto the greenery.  The sentiment from the Flowering Cactus Stamp Set was stamped onto thin strip of Basic White with Calypso Coral Ink and adhered with mini dimensionals.  

Have a beautiful day and a wonderful week.  Blessings, Tina
