It's a Par-Tea Mini Slimline Card: It's a Par-Tea Time Stamp Set & Dies | Pixi Dust Designs

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a fun Mini Slimline Card to share with you. I shared this card a few weeks back on my Instagram account for a Instagram Hop. I like to make Mini Slimline cards since they are easy to mail and you have a little more card real-estate to create a little scene on.

It's a Par-Tea Mini Slimline Card:

My card today features the Its Par-Tea Time Stamp Set, Its Par-Tea Time Pixi Cuts, and the You're A Cute Tea 6 x 6 Paper Pad. All of which can be purchased as a bundle in the It's Par-Tea Time Stamps, Pixi Cut, Paper Combo. I created a cute little picnic scene with the images from the stamp set perfect for any spring party. Which I think this would make a perfect invitation for a spring picnic or birthday party outside.

To cut my panels for the mini slimline card I used the Mini Slimline Additional Layers Dies (from Waffle Flower Crafts). I attached the polka dot and periwinkle colored pattern paper from the You're A Cute Tea Paper Paper Pad first to the mini slimline card base. I set my card base aside while I worked on my coloring. I stamped out all the images from the Its Par-Tea Time Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with my Ohuhu Honolulu Brush Markers. Once I had all the images colored I cut them out with the matching Its Par-Tea Time Pixi Cuts.

At this point it was time to work on my background panel. I used the Cloudy Stencil (from Lawn Fawn) and my Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress Oxide Inks to blend the clouds in the sky. I then used the Grassy Stencil (from Lawn Fawn) for the grass ink blending with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink on the back layer. Once the first layer of the grass was in place I used Lucky Clover and Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Inks to add two more layers to the grass area.

Once I had the background panel inked up I placed the panel into my MISTI and arranged my scene to figure out where I could put my sentiment. Once I knew the placement I stamped the sentiment "it's Par-Tea time" in Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink. I then removed the panel and attached the scene panel to the card base leaving a little boarder of the pattern paper showing. At this point I could start attaching the super cute little tea themed images and the treats.

I attached some of the elements straight to the card using a little Bearly Arts Precision Glue. I used the liquid glue for the images I wanted to appear further back in the scene. For some of the other images I used three different thicknesses of Double Sided Adhesive Foam Tape (from Scrapbook dot com). I cut smaller pieces from the 1mm Roll, the 2mm Roll and the 3mm Roll. I used the 3mm thickness for the couple of images I wanted to standout and to appear to be the closest to the viewer. So, if you want to add more depth to your scene cards use different thicknesses of adhesives.

To finish off the card I add a few Solid Quartz Clear Sequins (from Gina K Designs). This added just a little sparkle to the card. I also added a few highlights with my Sakura White Bold Gelly Roll Pen. After the white ink dried I added a little glitter to most of the images with my Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen. For the icing on the treats I used a little Stardust Stickles to add the perfect amount of sparkle and shine. There you have it my friends, that's how I created this super cute little spring picnic scene card.
