A sort of random attempt at a card for the TLC this week, using ribbon but not in a knot or bow.. A2 base, white card embossed with Stylized Flowers ef, cut green card along base for grass. White card edged with Stickles which doesn't show.
Penny Black butterfly stamped with Brilliance Sky Blue, Stickles on the dots on the wings.
Sizzix flourish for stem.
I made my flower by cutting a Blossoms 1 shape from white card and thin acetate layered together. Punched a 1/16" hole near the edge of each petal round the rim, and 7 circles in a ring in the centre. Using blue organza ribbon I sort of embroidered my flower through these holes (the acetate is just to add strength, so that the paper doesn't tear with the needle pulling the ribbon through). Added a gem brad for the centre, pierced round the edges and then edged with a clear Sakura Stardust pen and that's it.
Hope to be back with a better attempt later - and a better photo if it stops raining!
