Clean and Simple have a new sketch this week. With my card, I started with a base card made from Chocolate Chip cardstock. I then trimmed a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock which was slightly smaller than the base card and put it to one side. I trimmed a piece of Whisper White cardstock to be slightly smaller than the Pumpkin Pie cardstock. I followed this by embossing 2/3 of the Whisper White cardstock with the Victoria embossing folder. Using some scrap Whisper White cardstock I stamped 2 large flowers, 6 small flowers and 4 leaves from the Vintage Vogue stamp set. I trimmed the flowers and leaves and adhered the small flowers and leaves to the white embossed card stock and then adhered the embossed cardstock to the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock. Using a thin brown double stitched ribbon, I adhered the ribbon to the top of the Pumpkin Pie and embossed Whisper White cardstock. Using the Birthday sentiment from the Sincere Salutation stamp set, I stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the card. Once where I inked up the word Birthday with Chocolate Chip ink and the second time where I inked up the word Wishes with Pumpkin Pie. With the large flowers I used the cropadile to punch a hole in the centre so that I could insert the pearl brads into the middle of the flowers. I then adhered the large flowers to the embossed white cardstock with foam pads. I finished off the card by then adhering the Pumpkin Pie cardstock to the Chocolate Chip base card.
