Alex Syberia Design
Hello! Hello! Alex Syberia’s March release is live, and it is AMAZING! Head on over to her Etsy shop to check out all of the awesomeness she has in store for you!
For today’s project, I’m using the Fabulous Floral Slimline Card Panel. This is a beautiful image that’s a regular slimline size, however, I resized mine to be a mini slimline. So let’s get started!
Once my image was printed on Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and trimmed down to size, I broke out the Copic markers and started coloring! This ended up being a small batch of Copics for me! The colors used were: BV0000, BV000, BV00, BV01, BV02, BV04 and Y15.
After all of the purples were colored, I went in with a black Copic Multiliner 0.3 to add the filament (Yes! I had to look that up) back in so that it was visible. I then added the yellow to the anther of the flower. You guys, I’m learning things about flowers!
I love to do shading around the edges of my flowers, and this was done using a graphite pencil, along with a blending stump to soften the edges. I think it just adds a little something. I used Royal Talens Amsterdam Titanium White Acrylic Ink to add some splatter to my panel.
For my sentiment, I used the Hugs from the PinkFresh Studio Sending Phrase Builder set. Because dimension is life, I cut the main sentiment once from Tonic Luna Silver cardstock and twice from Neenah 110lb. I also cut the shadow twice from black cardstock. I adhered all of those pieces together using Craft Tacky Glue, and then adhered the sentiment to my panel.
There always has to be embellishments! I don’t know how to make a card without embellishments! I’m sure it can be done .. but I don’t know how! Anyhoo, I used the PinkFresh Studio Jewels Mix to add some purple bling.
I then adhered my colored panel to a black cardstock panel using 3M Foam Tape, because I like the contrast that it provides and it pulls the black together. Those were then adhered to a Neenah Classic Crest 110lb card base.
That does it for today’s project. I’m so glad that you stopped by! I hope that this card inspires you to get crafty as well. There’s an Instagram hop going on today to celebrate Alex’s new release, so head over there to check it out and comment for your chance to win a giveaway! Giveaways are always cool!

Aileen, you’re the sweetest! Thank you so much! I really liked this color combo so much. I normally lean towards the pinks and yellows, but decided to whip out these purples and I’m so glad that I did! Another beautiful combo that I was using today on a project is BG70, BG72 and BG75. Super gorgeous! Anyhoo, thank you for your sweet comment. I hope you’re having a great week sweet friend!
