Clementine Cards

As you know I've spent time over the holiday break by creating these adorable greeting cards using Clementine Paper Packet (X7156B), Cottage Assortment (Z1794), Burlap (Z1760), blue sparkles, and Clementine Workshop on the Go (WOG) stamp (G1046).

To recreate this card you will need to cut the patterned papers at the below measurements.
  • Card base folded measures at  4 1/4" x 5" and is made out of Campagne cardstock.
  • Sorbet card stock on the cover measures at 4" x 5".
  • Circle measures at  2 1/2" out of the lighter patterned paper
  • Colonial White piece that flowers are stamped on measures at 2"x 3".
  • The blue patterned paper measures at 1 1/2" x 2". Tear the bottom off to reduce its size to 2"x 1".
  • The bottom floral patterned paper measures at 3 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • Burlap ribbon measures at 2 1/2" in length.
To construct this card, 
  • first ink all sides of the colonial white paper, circle, Sorbet cardstock, floral patterned paper and cardbase using an Ink Dauber to apply a distressed with using the Sorbet Ink Pad.
  • Next stamp the border using the WOG stamp in Sobert Inkpad onto the Sorbet cardstock. 
  • Adhere the floral patterned paper on the bottom half of the card base.
  • Leaving an 1/8" border on the bottom, adhere the Sorbet cardstock flushed to the left hand side of the card base.
  • Next stamp a small flower found on the WOG stamp using the Sorbet Inkpad on to the Colonial White carstock that measures 2"x 3". 
  • On a separate Colonial White cardstock stamp a larger flower using the Sorbet Inkpad and hand cutting this stamped image out
  • Adhere the blue patterned paper to the bottom of the Colonial White cardstock that measures 2"x 3".
  • Stamp now on the left side of the Colonial White cardstock (2"x 3") a flower in Honey Ink Pad.
  • Create a "V" notch on the Burlap ribbon and adhere about 1/8" from the bottom left side of the Colonial White Cardstock (2"x3")
  • Trim the top border of the patterned paper with the sentiment that reads "Friends Forever" and use the saying "Thanks for Everything". Create a "V" notch on the right hand side of the sentiment that reads "Thanks for Everything".
  • The alternative to using the printed sentiment you may create your own like I did above by cutting a banner that measures 1/2" x 2 3/4" out of Colonial White. Then stamping the background pattern using Honey Inkpad then stamping the sentiment in Dessert Sand or Champagne ink.
  • Ink the edge of the sentiment with Dessert Sand or Champagne Ink.
  • Adhere the circle on the top left of the Colonial White cardstock (2"x3"), then Burlap ribbon, and Sorbet stamped flower, and sentiment.
  • Now embellish with sparkles in the center of the flowers.

This card base was created out of Saddle card stock and measures at 4 1/4" x 5" folded. 
  • Circles measures at 2 1/2", 1 1/2" and 1". 
  • Burlap ribbon measures at 5" with a "V" notch in the center. 
  • The Colonial White on the top left hand side measure at 3"x 3" and was distressed using Sorbet ink. 
  • The stamped flower was created using WOG stamp and Honey ink pad.  
  • The sentiment can be recreated by stamping the sentiment in either Dessert Sand or Saddle Ink and measures at 2 1/2" L x 1/2" W. 
  • You may use the sentiment found on the top of the patterned paper found in the WOG. I recommend using the sentiment " You make Me  Smile". 
  • Stamp the large flower on the large circle using Sorbet Ink pad. 
  • Before adhering all the pieces together sand the Saddle card base giving it a distressed look. 
  • Now adhere the Colonial White card stock to the top left side leaving  1/8" from the top. 
  • Then adhere the Burlap ribbon overlapping on top of Colonial White leaving an 1/8" border from the left side. 
  • Adhere the large circle with the stamp image, followed by the Sorbet circle slightly overlapping. 
  • On the blue circle I used created a stitched pattern using an Acid Free Black ink pen, then adhered overlapping the Sorbet pattern paper and Colonial White card stock. 
  • Next, I adhered the sentiment aligning it to the left edge of the Colonial White card stock. 
  • The last step, I adhered clear and blue sparkles in the center of the flowers and on the Sorbet patterned circle.
