Preheat oven to 275 °F. Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. Condition all clay by kneading until it’s soft and smooth or running it through the Clay Conditioning Machine for several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
Creating the Clay Embellishment: Step 1
Combine the Peacock Pearl clay and the Pearl clay using the Clay Conditioning Machine. Create a sheet on the number 3 setting. Place a 4” x 5” (approximately) piece of the clay on an index card. Lightly mist one of the larger size fleur de lys stamps and stamp into the sheet of clay. Do the same thing with the coordinating medium size fleur de lys stamp. Lightly highlight the stamped area with the PearlEx powder. Using the craft knife trim around each shape. Place index card on a baking sheet.
Creating the Clay Embellishment: Step 2
Place a 3” x 2” sheet on clay on another index card. Using the Alphabet Stamper stamp the word Bonjour on the sheet of clay. Center the words Mon Amie right under Bonjour. Highlight the stamped words with the PearlEx powder and trim the piece to 2 ½” x 15/16” using the Super Slicer. Place on baking sheet.

Bake clay embellishments according to package directions. When done remove from oven and remove embellishments from index cards when they are still warm, this allows them to cool flat.

Cut a piece of Turquoise paper to 2 5/16” x 1 15/16”, ink edges with Brown stamp pad. Using finished card photo as your guide adhere these 3 pieces to the front of the card.
