If Friends Were Flowers Slimline

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.

May is just flying by and we are already at the halfway point of the month. But our weather is still a bit cold especially at night. We are averaging mid 50's during the day and then down in the 30's at night. It's Spring time in Pittsburgh and I know soon it will be back to more normal temps. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog.  I have for your viewing pleasuring a CAS style card that would be very easy to reproduce.

I am using the Spring Flowers in Jar 1, 2, 3 dies and I created a card in the slimline style. So let's get started on some details of how I created my card.

Design Steps:
I started by cutting the images in white cardstock. I thought they would standout nicely against a bold and bright background.
Next I cut the image panel. I used just the double stitched rectangle from the new Lift Flaps Stitched Rectangle Slimline die and cut it from a bright magenta cardstock. 
I wanted an additional layer so I used the largest of the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle Slimline and I cut in black cardstock to continue with the bold look.
I stamped my sentiment in black ink directly on the magenta image panel. With this sentiment I will be able to use this card for a variety of occasions by stamping another sentiment on the inside. 
Now I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the image panel to the black scalloped layering panel with double sided tape. Then I attached the Flower jars using Ranger multi medium matte.
To complete my card I cut a white card base measuring 3 1/8" x 8 1/2". I will add another sentiment on the card inside.
I attached the image panel with double sided tape and scattered a few white faceted enamel dots.
Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
