Slimline cards are all the rage right now! And I've fallen head over heels in love with the Rina K Designs Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets! I paired them with one of my first ThermOWeb loves - Deco Foil Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheets!
The Deco Foil Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheets are my FAVORITE because they give dimension ( which I love ) and die cut so easily! Even through multiple layers. I used the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Waves Die for my slimline card. I love the little wavy windows! I wanted to give them some extra oomph! I removed one layer of the backing from the Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheet and adhered it to a piece of heavy white cardstock. I trimmed the Foam Adhesive Sheet with the white cardstock into smaller strips so that I wouldn't have a lot of waste. Then I adhered Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets to the other side of the Foam Adhesive Sheet.
This is so easy to do! I removed the other backing piece from the Deco Foil Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheet, trimmed a piece of a Neon Enamel Transfer Sheet to be slightly larger than my foam sheet, and pressed the Neon Enamel into the foam. There's no need to peel back the Neon Enamel Sheet as you would with Flock or Foil - just leave it there! And you'll have an Enamel covered Foam Adhesive Sheet ready to die cut! And let me tell you - this die cuts like butter! Even with the heavy cardstock, the Foam Adhesive Sheet, and the Neon Enamel on top! I repeated this process with each of the 4 colors of Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets and then used the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Waves Die to cut the windows from each of the colors of Neon Enamel. Check out the video above for some tips!
I used the Whimsy Stamps Slimline Waves Die to cut out a piece of regular white cardstock and used iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive to adhere the frame onto a slimline card measuring 8.25" x 3.25". Then - just like a puzzle - I pieced the Neon Enamel Sheets covered Foam Adhesive Sheet "windows" into the frame with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive. The frame is glued straight down, but because I used the Deco Foil Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheets for the Neon Enamel the "windows" are slightly raised.
Now it's time for what goes on top! I stamped out some cutie monsters from the Whimsy Stamps Kooky Monsters Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I built my sentiment from the Whimsy Stamps You're Too Kind Stamp Set by stamping the smaller words with black ink and the large "friend" with Rina K Designs Neon Electro-Pop Orange Glow Ink. I giggled when I stamped out the sentiment. I hope we all have that special friend who is silly and maybe a little bit inappropriate at times. I sure do! I trimmed out the sentiment and the little monsters and added them to the front of my slimline card with Gina K Designs White Foam Squares.
