For this tour, we were asked to make a red, white & blue birthday card or a birthday card in general. I wanted to make a ribbon flower and ended up using it as the center for the paper daisy. Details below.Stamps: On Your Birthday
CS: WW, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Real Red (base for ribbon flower)
Ink: Real Red marker
Misc.: Dimensionals, Scallop Edge Border, Texturz Backgrounds #1, 5/8" Real Red grosgrain, Paper Daisies, Sticky Strip, Glue Dots
1. The base of the card is made with Crumb Cake. I cut a piece of crumb cake 3" x 4-1/4" to run through the Big Shot with the texture plate and then sponged.
2. Punch a piece of Night of Navy to adhere to the back of the textured cardstock and mount to card base.
3. Make ribbon flower. Use a 2" x 2" piece of Real Red cardstock and put rows of the sticky strip tape side by side. Twist the ribbon, starting with the center on the sticky strip and wind it around until it is the size you want. Trim the red cardstock and mount to flower using glue dots. Secure flower to the textured cardstock.
4. Stamp "happy birthday" on a 1/2" x 4-1/4" piece of white cardstock. Snip ends. I used the bone folder to curl up the ends and ran it on the bottom to make it more flexible for bending. Mount with Dimensionals.
