Tres Jolie July Card Kit- Slimline Cards.

 Surprise..Liv here to join in sharing a set of cards I made using this month's card Kit.  

I know you are used to me using the Mixed Media kit but I tried my hand at these mixed media "vintage" style cards...which is bit off of my grungy style but I really enjoyed how they came out. See the video below for how I pulled it together. 

 First up I had to distress the cards a bit. I don't have one of those fancy distressing tools so the edge of a scissor works just fine. 

 Once I did that to all of the cards, I pulled out my distress inks to ink up the sides. 

Then I wanted to add some texture so I pulled out my texture paste and used a stencil from my stash to apply it with. 

Finally, I began to add all of the embellishments. For this card, I did use the chipboard scroll available over the Tres Jolie site. Whenever I used a larger chipboard piece like this, I do trim it up. 

For the final card, I took the beautiful chipboard piece and covered it with gold wax. 

Added the flowers and voila....three slimline cards. 

I hope you guys enjoy these set of cards. If you are interested in the Card kit, be sure to stop by the store to grab yourself the July kit.
