The card base is a piece of watercolor paper cut the standard 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" size. I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to color it and then added a little bit of Shabby Shutters in the center. I then stamped the card using Walnut Stain Distress Ink with a Stampabilities wooden stamp called Ornate Textured Background.
For the clover I used some of my handmade stems and the leaves were made using a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch. I just cut the little flowers in half. The clover petals were made using a technique I learned on Splitcoast Stampers (I think?). I took a piece of cardstock and repeatedly rubbed it over the edge of my counter top until the layers of the cardstock began to separate. Once the whole piece is softened you can peel the two layers apart. What you're left with is a texture very much like suede. I then sprayed the petals with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist.
The little blue flowers are ribbon flowers just like the ones I made the hyacinth with on my Birthday Mini video. You can find a fantastic tutorial on how to make these on Gina Ortiz's YT channel--scrappinology.The sentiment was computer generated and painted with pearl Perfect Pearls mixed with water, and the whole card was edged with gold embossing powder.
It was fun to make and I can't wait to get the cards from my swap partners.
Have a great Sunday!
