To no one in particular, just a Happy Birthday card I CASED from Inkspired Treasures the other day. Her card is here, and mine is a very close copy. Different stamps and paper, but the very same layout.
The flower stamp is Hero Arts and I’m not sure about the sentiment. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterfly and the papers are all Memory Box. I cut the scallops with a QuicKutz scallop die. Nothing special, just a fun little card. Hers turned out much better than mine, I think.
I tried my hand at making the twisted ribbon flowers I have been seeing everywhere, too.
The first one is my favorite and I think I used PTI Sweet Blush satin ribbon. The other ones were made with various ribbons from here and there. I did find that softer, more supple ribbon makes a prettier flower, and is easier to work with. I used Scor Tape sheets to stick the ribbon down, and it is holding very well.
This one is made with some May Arts ribbon that I won on their Facebook page – gorgeous coral/peachy colored satin center and sheer edges, very pretty ribbon. A little wide for using on a card, though, it’s 1-1/2” wide.
These were fun to make and I will try to get them on some cards soon. I am also planning either a tutorial, or perhaps even a video, so stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all staying safe in these storms we’ve been having. They are coming our way tonight but not until the wee hours of the morning :-(. I’d love to stay up and enjoy the thunder and lightning but I have to be up early in the morning.
