mft november slimline challenge

Do you make slimline cards? Did you know that MFT has a monthly slimline challenge and you can enter for a chance to win $50 to the MFT shop?

This month's slimline challenge is extra cute because smaller is cuter and the challenge is...MINI slimline cards! Somehow I didn't even know this was a thing but I couldn't wait to try it!

I ended up creating this...
My card ended up being so simple...glitter paper with a slightly wonky paper bow (using the Perfect Present die set). 

I didn't have the pinky-red glitter paper I wanted so I used a blending brush with MFT Wild Cherry & Ripe Raspberry inks to transform some peach glitter paper. 
Here are my tips for ink blending on glitter paper...
  • I recommend using a blending brush because the glitter can tear blending sponges. 
  • Dye inks let the glitter shine through more than pigment or hybrid inks.
  • And always remember to let the glitter paper dry after inking.
I love the 3x6 mini slimline size and I think I might make a bunch of these to use as gift tags for the holidays. But I think I will change the bow placement, LOL! By the way, I made the bow from white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.
