Instructions. The ready side fold card measures 6" by 7 1/2". Cut a dark color strip measuring 2" by 7 1/2" from the designer paper collection and distress the edges. Layer the strip on left side of the card base. For the front panel cut smooth white cardstock measuring 5 1/2" by 6 3/4". Create a background by smooshing Faded Jeans Distress ink on the craft mat and spritzing water. Once happy with the background, score the panel at 1/4" each time. Layer it on another piece of white card stock which is 1/8" bigger on all the four sides of the scored panel. Tear 2 pieces of pattern papers as shown in the card, distress the edges with scissors and tone it with Faded Jeans to match the background of the card. Layer all the pieces together giving dimensions with foam tape. Adhere few stripes of white laces cut using Delicate Border Basic Die. Tie around a blue color twine and adhere the whole panel on the right side of the card base. For the window, choose an oval panel from the designer paper collection, die cut using spellbinder's oval die. Distress the edges and layer it on white oval using foam dots. Trim a white die cut from Raindrops on Roses die cut and adhere from the back of oval panel as shown. I have used ColorBox Fluid Chalk Ink Pad - Berrylicious and Guacamole. For pollens, I have used Memento Dye Ink Pad Cantaloupe. Leaves are painted using Archival Leaf green and Olive Green. Tie a small bouquet of dogwoods on the dry twigs to form a spray and adhere it using hot glue. To complete the card, I added a sentiment from Dogwood Chapel Cling Stamp Set and stamped with black archival.
