Love Card by Sioux Jenneys

Happy New Year everyone! It's a card from me today :)

1. First off I'll give you the measurements I used to make the card and the score lines.
Basically cut an A4 piece of card in two lengthways so that the larger piece is A5 size in height then cut this to 19 cm wide.
Using the long thin strip of card cut two pieces measuring 9.8cm and 10cm...
...mark 2.5 cm up on one edge, draw a diagonal line to the opposite top edge and cut.
Score the fold lines on both the card and diagonal pieces at 5.4cm and 3.2cm.

2. You can see the diagonal cuts below... is the time to do any stamping on the base card.

I chose to add a pattern using the Baroque Background to both long edges of the card and the two outer edges of the diagonal pieces in Distress Ink bundled sage. The sentiment was stamped in Archival black.

Don't worry about the pattern not covering the main card right to the bottom as the diagonal part gets attached there and will cover it. :)

3. Die cut a couple of borders and stamp with the Mini Polka Dot background in Distress Ink spiced marmalade.

4. Attach to the top edge of the diagonal pieces....trim the ends...
...and edge with a gold marker pen before attaching to the base card.

5. I'm so glad the Perfect Pearls Mist show up on the flower from Botanical Plate 1 stamped in a mixture of Distress Ink aged mahoganey, spiced marmalade and bundled sage onto some watercolour paper then liberally sprayed with the pearl version of the mists.
Don't forget they are on special offer this month :)

6. Stamp the word love from Journaling Words 1 in Archival black onto some watercolour card that has already been sprayed with the pearl mist and left to dry, then cut out and attach along with the flower.

:) See you again soon!

xoxo Sioux
