French Charming

Here is a quick tutorial for this card:

1.  Cut a mat out of Sahara Sand Cardstock 4” x 5 ¼”.
2.  Stamped the En Francais background stamp with Sahara Sand ink.
3.  I used my Martha Stewart Ribbon Slot Punch at the bottom of the mat and added my ribbon.
4.  I cut the bottom off of a manila tag so it would fit on my mat and randomly stamped the medallion image in Sahara Sand (first stamping off once on scrap paper except for two locations)
5.  I added a piece of Sage Shadow Cardstock at the bottom of the tag and used my tearing tool to rip it.
6.  I stamped the small damask image in Sage Shadow (first stamping off once on scrap paper).
7.  I then positioned the flower image & butterfly and stamped them using Sage Shadow.
8.  The border & sentiment were stamped on Sage Shadow Cardstock using Sage Shadow ink with VersaMark and clear embossing powder. This was then cut out by hand.
9.  Next I sponged the edges of the Sahara Sand mat, manila tag and Sage Shadow Cardstock with ColorBox Chalk Creamy Brown.
10. I added a piece of ribbon through the tag.
11. Lastly, I sponged Candle Light Shimmerz Paint on the Sahara Sand mat for a vintage look. Unfortunately, it does not show up in my scan, but it gives it a pretty shimmer.
12. Everything was mounted to a cream linen card base 4 ¼” x 5 ½”.
