Yesterday was my good friend Wendy's birthday and I made her this card which is a variation of the one I made here. This time I've used the fancy flower punch to make some lovely flowers. I scrunched and spritzed them with a little water to distress the card and make it malleable and for the centres I used sticky strip on punched circles to fold the ribbon around from the outside inwards. I also used the fork/two finger method for my striped grosgrain ribbon bow. I'll do a tutorial at some point if you aren't sure! To seal the ribbon ends I whizzed them through a candle flame. Be careful if you do this though!
The spiral punch is understated in our catalogue, but once you've seen it used there are no end of ways to showcase it and here it makes a fab frame to my Love Letter DSP.
If you haven't checked lately my new class list is available to view via the 'craft classes' link at the top of my blog. Come and spend a couple of hours forgetting your worries with a bunch of folk doing the same and therefore it's always fun!
This also fits in with the creative craft challenges, challenge of pretty blossoms.
Take care now and make this a great week.
