Oh my gosh, has it really been that long since my last post?! Spring time is just so busy, I’ve been doing so much yard work, planting, weeding, mowing, etc. it’s taken up alot of my free time. I’ll try to do better :)

I haven’t posted any cards or stamping lately so I wanted to share a fun card I made for a class recently. They loved it, especially the flower and I wanted to share how I made it.

First off you need a large brad and some ribbon that has stitching through it, it comes in lots of colors and can be found at most craft stores. Cut a 5″ piece of ribbon and begin pulling the threads from the *same* long side on both ends. Keep pulling and gathering the ribbon as you go, when it forms a circle tie the ends of the ribbon threads together, then trim off the ends of the threads, careful not to cut through the knot. Then insert a large brad through the ribbon flowers open center and open up the brad, this will hold it in place and you can use a large glue dot to hold the flower to your project. Easy and cute, huh?

The skunk and sentiment stamp comes from a set from The Paper Company and he’s been embossed in black, the bottom of the card has been cut with a scalloped pair of decorative scissors.
