Hi There! I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather of the Spring season! Here in New York it's warming into the 60's, which is a heat wave for us! I can't wait to get out there and plant flowers again, garden, and soak up a little bit of sun. For today's tutorial, I was inspired by the colors of Emma's Shoppe to create a Springy card with a little ribbon rose bud as the focal point. One thing I love to do with my scrapbooking supplies is to be creative and use them in different ways. Ribbon is one of my favorite scrapbooking staples, because it's soft, has a warm welcoming feel, and there are so many unique things you can do with it. Let me show you how to create a ribbon rose bud for yourself!
I started with the pink ribbon from the Emma's Shoppe ribbon pack and cut a piece about 8" in length. I began to fold the ribbon back and forth to create varying heights to the rose bud.
Next, I wrapped the end of the ribbon around the bottom of the bud and adhered it with an adhesive square (or you can use hot glue to adhere it as well).
The excess ribbon was trimmed off.
Lastly, I adhered a chipboard flower/leaves to the bottom of the rosebud and then added the finished product to the card. To create the card, I used a journaling card for the background and cut some label and scalloped shaped squares with the Sizzix die cutting machine. These are cut from the 6" x 6" Emma's Shoppe paper pad (great for die-cutting!). I layered the label shapes a bit for more interest, along with an Emma's Shoppe phrase sticker and a layered chipboard sticker.
This card would work as an Easter card, birthday card, or even a baby girl card! Thank-you so much for stopping by today - see you next month! ~Danielle Flanders
