Clementine Cards 3 and 4

The card base was created out of Saddle card stock and measures at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I used two Clementine patterned paper (X7156B), Colonial White card stock that measures at 3" x 3", Burlap Ribbon (Z1760), and Sparkles. To recreate cut the floral patterned paper at 5 1/4"L x 1 1/8"W and the second patterned paper at 4 3/4" L x 1 1/8" W. Using a black archival safe ink pen to create a stitch effect by making dash lines using a ruler on one side of the patterned paper. Using a sponge or dauber ink the edges of the Colonial White to distress using Sorbet Ink.  Next, stamp background image onto Colonial White using Honey ink pad. Then stamp a floral image on top of the first image using Sorbet. Now cut the floral image. To recreate the sentiment cut the top portion of the patterned paper, cut a "V" notch on the left side of the word Forever, then  ink the edges using Sorbet. Now cut a "V" shape notched on the bottom of the Burlap Ribbon that measures at 2" in length. Adhere all pieces as pictures and embellish with clear sparkles. Burlap can be adhered using Tombo tape runner adhesive.

The card pictured above is one of my personal favorites. The card base also measures at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" folded using Colonial White or Champagne card stock. The Clementine Floral patterned paper measures at 4" x 5" and the Sorbet card stock measures at 3" W x 4" L. The Colonial White card stock with the flowers measures at 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". The blue patterned paper torn measures at  1/2" W x 2 1/2" L. The edges of a burlap ribbon were removed by cutting it at 3" in length then tied knots. Using Clementine Cottage Assortment to embellish the card. The smaller flower was stamped using Dessert Sand and a clear sparkle finishes off the flower. Stamp the sentiment "Good Times" using Dessert Sand or Lagoon ink pad on the bottom left side of the Sorbet card stock. Adhere all pieces as pictured using Tombo tape runner adhesive. Using a Black Archival ink pen and a ruler create a stitch pattern along the border of the floral patterned paper.
