I made these cards a few weeks ago for the "Spring" ATC swap. I wish that I had gotten them on my blog sooner but it's spring and there is so much to do. Not to mention that I am hosting a "Fairy and Magical Folk" ATC swap. I needed to get my own cards for that swap done and out of the way, so that I could clear my studio of all that mess before the ATC's for the swap start arriving.
For this card I selected a blue piece of card stock and then used a contrasting piece of yellow for the center of the card. I then cut a strip of the same blue card stock and cut it into an 3/4 inch strip. I fringed the outside edge and then rolled it around a piece of floral wire to create the stem of the flower. Then I cut two leaves from dark green handmade paper. I covered the stem with floral tape catching the leaves against the stem with the tape. I ran a piece of matching sheer ribbon through my Xyron. This is a wonderful way to attach ribbon because it doesn't stain or show through the ribbon like glue would. Then I tied a tiny blue ribbon to the stem.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
