Hi blog friends! Red, cream and blue today for a simple card with another one of my ginormous bows! I used the edgeability dies to give a decorative edge to the background and used a little Antique Linen to bring out the detail. I cut a frame using Labels 20 and embossed it with the polka dot mask, to match my blue polka dot paper. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with one of the fancy tags. The bow was made more focal by the use of the red frilly edged ribbon and the steam blue vintage ribbon. I topped the bow with a flower that was made with the crocheted ribbon. It's a very simple method, you just need to cut the ribbon in half down the centre, apply redline tape to the cut edge and roll the flower. As you roll, just slightly gather it to create the fullness in the flower. I will try to take some photos the next time I make one of these flowers and do a little tutorial for you if you like.
Here is a close up of the flower for your inspection. It is really pretty I think and the crocheted ribbon looks great done this way. What is really nice is that you get two flowers from this technique since you cut the ribbon down the centre. It's a frilly card, but a really nice way to tell someone that they are special. Don't you think? All for now, Sue x
