Hey everyone, Anne here from Anne-Made and today I'm sharing another slimline card I created for the Dies R Us Inspiration team.  

Before we get started, I wanted to let you know there is one more day to apply for the DRU Inspiration DT Call. All the details about the call can be found HERE.

And now, for today's project. The following dies were used to create this slimline card:

This slimline card is a bit wider than the dies that I had, so I created my own based on the width of the Ocean Waves die.  I started out by die cutting the Palm Trees from black shimmery cardstock and then paper piecing the moon and the branches.  For the moon, I die cut a piece of double sided adhesive and covered it with glitter.

The Ocean Waves die is a layering die, so I die cut it from two different shades of blue. This is a rectangular shape and I wanted a curve at the top, so eyeballed it and cut it with scissors. I also wanted sparkle underneath, so using the die cut as a template, I cut a piece of double sided adhesive, adhering one side to a piece of cardstock and adding glitter to the other side. I then adhered the die cut waves on top.

I stamped and fussy cut out several fairies from the Lavinia stamp Three Dancing Fairies. I also stamped the dolphin onto grey cardstock and fussy cut him out. (Any of these dolphin dies would also work.)

For the sentiment, I wanted a belly band sort of look. My sentiment is half of a stamped image called Dreams and Delights and by masking the "Dreams" part, I was able to stamp the part I wanted onto the belly band. It looks like I really messed up my stamping, but the stamp actually was designed this way. 😁 I heat embossed it using Hero Arts White embossing powder.

I hope you've enjoyed today's project.  Here is one final look:
