1. Make card from cardstock.
2. Cut a panel and adhere to card.
3. Cut another strip, tear the edge, and adhere to cad.
4. Cut a triangle and cover with ribbons. Once you have all the ribbon layered, trim the ribbon.
5. Cut a small brown cardstock for tree stump, adhere to card, and adhere ribbon tree to card as well.
6. To prevent the ribbon tree from fraying, glued metallic string around it.
7. Stamp sentiment.
I just love using the Core’dinations cardstock. It’s perfect for tearing or sanding. Simply fabulous!
Now, my second project is a fall card.
Do you notice the flower center? It’s made out of ribbon.
- Petaloo flowers
- Hero Arts Truly Appreciated set
- Stampabilities Faded Text background
- Twill stripes 382-34-27
- Soft silky DC30
1. Cut a panel, wrap soft silky ribbon around it, and adhere to card.
2. Stamp the petaloo flowers with faded text background. Layer the flowers.
3. For the center of the flower cut about 8” of the twill stripes ribbon. Fold the ribbon along the length using fabric glue. Important: only put glue on the bottom part, not the whole ribbon). Then fringe the ribbon by snipping from the folded edge toward the opposite glued edges. Cut slowly and evenly to avoid snipping all the way across.Once that done, add the fabric glue to the bottom uncut part and start rolling the ribbon in all the way to the ed. Don’t worry if you see some fraying. When you’re done rolling, take a lighter and carefully burn the fray.
4. Adhere the ribbon flower to the center of the petaloo flowers and adhere the flower to card.
5. Stamp sentiment.
I hope my projects today inspire you to get crafty. Thank you all so much for stopping by here. Have a fabulous day everyone!
