This card I started with a 5 1/2″x5 1/2″ folded cardbase which I cut a 5″x5″ piece of patterned cardstock, inked the edges and adhered to the cardbase.
Even though the card looks hard to put together it really isn’t. I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstocks 3 1/4″x5″, 2 3/4″x5″ and 2 1/4″x5″ and used a decorative punch (5” side) on each piece and then measured 2 1/2″ of the punched edge (the center) and cut with in a 1/2″ of each piece of cardstock. I then “curled” the cut edges around a pencil and then adhered each piece on top of each other to create a pocket.
I used the Doily diecut to cut a doily from off white piece of cardstock, ink edges and then glued to cardbase and inside the “pocket”.
I cut the big leaves from the Holiday Greenery diecut on off white cardstock. I then inked with a variety of peach, tan, brown, yellow and green chalk ink. I blended the colors together and then wadded and crinkled the leaves up and then shaped the ends with my stylus. I folded down the middle and inked the center with brown ink.
