You're Awesome!

 Hello!  It's Candice happy to be joining you today on the Create a Smile blog with a sweet mini slimline design!

I wanted to create a smaller scene than what would fit on a regular slimline size, so I shrunk it to a mini slimline size!

I began my mini slimline with a 4 x 6 1/2 card base.

For the background, I first die cut the new slimline postage die shortening it by using the partial die cut method (cut half way through the machine, rotate and line up, and run it half way through again!)

I then taped off the edges and inked with the diamond stencil using crackling campfire, spiced marmalade & scattered straw oxide inks.

Next, I stamped the images from the Fur Real & Fine Ferns stamp sets, colored them with copic markers and fussy cut them out.

I finished by clustering my images on the banner with my heat embossed sentiment and sprinkled some blue gems for sparkle!

I am a huge fan of slimline dies and if you are too remember that you can also shorten them for a smaller scene into a mini slimline size!

Thank you for visiting with me today!
