C86 Mother Earth Collection Card 
by Bev Code

Paper: C86 Mother Nature Collection, 007 Berrylicious, 002 Botanical Bulb
Chipboard: CD86 015
Markers: copic
Sketch: Feeling Sketchy
Other: cardstock, mini 8 punch, twine, flower, alpha label


STEP #1: When creating cards with or without a sketch I like to grab the paper collection and pull at least 3-5 papers that coordinate leaving my options open as I go along. If there are matching accents I pull them too or have paper options that allow punching or making accents too.

STEP #2: For this card I started again with a single sheet background to make mounting to the full card base later easier.  On this one I started with the full striped sheet matted with cardstock. I used the mini 8 punch to create the circular punched background and it was matted so the punched edge would pop with colour.

STEP #3: Next I cut both the tags and sentiment pennant sized to fit the central section of the punch circle. 

STEP #4: Twine was added to the tags and sentiment added to the pennant and matted.

STEP #5: Now using the chipboard accents I coloured them using copic markers. They were clustered together and a flower added to finish the extra accents.

This was very simple and easy but it's the rich elegant papers and colours that make the whole card pop.
