Movin' right along... card #3

Hello there, stamping friends!

Here we are at Wednesday and it's time for another card using the masterboard you created.  Cards 1 and 2 used the top half of your masterboard and now we are going to make 4 cards out of the bottom half of it.
Before we go any farther, let me refresh your memory with a photo showing the cutting lines for the bottom half of your sheet.

So, as you can see, card #3 uses a panel that is 3 inches by 5 inches.  
And now, here's the very easy card that you can create with this panel.

Again, start with a half sheet of white cardstock, folded in the middle to create a card base that is 5 1/2 by 4 1/4.
Cut a strip of Tangerine Tango cardstock that is 5 1/4 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches wide.  Glue it under the right-hand edge of the masterboard panel, so that the whole thing is 4 inches wide.  Wrap this finished panel with some Chevron ribbon in Crushed Curry and adhere it to the card base.  I created the flower using Real Red, Tangerine Tango, and Crushed Curry cardstock and the following punches:
Blossom Punch Pansy Punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  After punching out the flowers, I used the Square Lattice embossing folder to add some texture and interest to the flower.  I used glue dots to assemble the flower.  Those things really hold.  I stamped the sentiment (from Lots of T\hanks on page 29 of the annual catalog) on a strip of white card stock and adhered it to the ribbon with glue dots.  

Again, please don't think your card has to look like mine.  If you leave off the sentiment, you'll be able to 
see that pretty chevron ribbon better and you'll have a card that is ready to send for any occasion or "just because."  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you are still playing along with me.  This masterboard method is so versatile that you can use it for any season.  Wouldn't some fall cards using a masterboard of fall leaves in rich autumn tones be fun to make?  Or how about some wintry cards with snowflakes stamped in several shades of blue with some silver accents?  Think of the pretty Valentines you could make with hearts and flowers in several shades of pink.  Oh, the possibilities are endless!  I hope I've inspired you to create more masterboards.  

Please come back on Friday for card #4.  It's another very easy card, I promise!
Happy masterboarding!
