Tough Times


My card base is 6 1/2" x 6 1/2". To make card base I cut one piece of the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" and one piece 6 1/2 x 6 1/2. Score the 6 1/2" x 7 1/2" piece on the 7 1/2" side at 6 1/2". Add Scor-Tape and join the two pieces to finish. Cut a piece of Sheet #2B a little smaller than the card base and distress the edges. Ink the edges with Magenta Hue and glue to card front.

Stamp the clock several times using Memento Bamboo Leaves ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Use coordinating dies to cut out to make different layers of the clock. I used cotton balls to add Magenta Hue and Bamboo Leaves to the different elements of the clock. I just like the smooth look the cotton balls and ink gave the piece. Stamp one of the Timepiece Sentiments onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper and color with the cotton balls as well. I used dimensional tape to add the different layers of the clock. It gives it a bit of interest and dimension. Glue to the card front.

Using smooth white cardstock, stamp the rose petals using Memento New Sprout ink. This barely shows on the flower petals. Using coordinating dies cut out the petals. Color the center of the petals with New Sprout and the edges with Magenta Hue ink. Hand shape the petals and use hot glue to put the petals together to form a rose. I used 3 layers of the largest petals and 3 of the next smaller petal to form the bud portion of the rose. Using a Hydra Sponge and Dries Clear Adhesive sponge the edges of the roses and add Crystal Clear Glitter. Set aside to dry.

Stamp the leaves with Fern Green ink and color with Leaf Green and edge with Fern Green ink. Use coordinating dies to cut out. Lay onto the mold, spritz with water and run through die cut machine. Allow to dry.

Once everything is dry, decide on placement and hot glue down. The card is finished.
