Purple Clematis

Clematis are such beautiful flowers and are very easy to create with Susan's Garden Notes Clematis die set.
To create this card, begin with a 6-inch square card.  Cover the front of the card with a piece of the ModaScrap Wood Effects card stock.  Add gold  Corner Peel Off Stickers to each corner.

Create a water colored background by blending Distress Oxide Inks on a piece of white card stock.  Use the Dashing Square die set to die cut a narrow square frame.  Use the Dotted Scallop die set and die cut a slightly larger square.  Cut a piece of the colored background to fit behind the inside of the narrow frame.  Attach the frame on top of the Dotted Scallop Square.  Attach to the card as shown. 

Use the Garden Notes Clematis die set to create three flowers. Use 85lb white Soft Finish Cardstock.   For a smooth application, sponge purple ink around the edges of each petal, leaving the center white.  Shape the petals with the Flower Tool Kit.  Die cut three of the round stamens.  Use the Fine Pointed Scissors to cut down each spoke to create a frilly stamen.  Use scissors to cut down each spoke of the long die cut stamen piece.  Glue along the bottom and roll with tweezers. Assemble the three flowers.  Color and shape the leaves of the Clematis.  

Use the Ostrich Fern die and die cut 4 ferns, using green card stock.  Use a light brown marker to color the center stem of the fern.  Shape the leaves using the small Elizabeth Craft Tweezers.  

Arrange the ferns and flowers along the left side of the card, as shown.

This card can be mailed in one of the clear acrylic boxes sold at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Links to products used as shown below.

So pretty and I immediately thought of the ones my grandfather grew in the yard when I was a child. The trellis was loaded with those flowers! Beautiful Selma!
