Bloomin' Lovely


Just couldn't let another week go by without joining in at the City Crafter Challenge, especially as the lovely ladies over there awarded me with a Spotlight Artist award a few weeks back - thanks ladies.
This week's theme is 'I've Been Framed' to use a frame somewhere in your project.  I've framed my card by stitching a border of patterned paper around my card. Thanks to Cards magazine for the inspiration.


This is how I made the flower.  I stuck a square of double-sided sticky sheet onto a piece of quite sturdy card and punched out a 2 inch circle.  Removed the backing and starting in the centre stuck the ruffled ribbon to the card in a spiral until the circle of card was completed covered with ribbon.



Cardstock: Stampin Up Crumb Cake
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey June bug
Ribbon: Maya Road Ruffled Ribbon
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat

  4. Ruffled flower is fab. Despite being a bit of a sewer myself, I've never stitched on a card, time to dust off the old sewing machine and give it a go. Great inspiration. xx
