Edit: Let's talk about that flower shall we? It was very easy to create. First thing is to cut or punch a circle to the size you want your flower in the closest color to the ribbon of choice. Using CTMH is the best choice for this technique since we have coordinating products. I used Sunflower CS & Sunflower organza ribbon. Next, tie a knot in the end of your ribbon. Glue dot that knot to the center of your circle. Roll, fold, flip & glue that ribbon down around and around till you get to the very outside. I use Glue Dots and trim the extra cardstock off the edges (If it shows) Add Brads or buttons to the center. That is it! Now go make one. You will love them!
Ps. Let's talk about those scallop borders at the bottom shall we? Guess what I used? A Circle Punch! Punch & Punch Circles then layer them! Instant Border. I think I have a thing for circles today.

Mary said...

Love your card Tracey - it's so elegant :) I am not able to see your links in your text though on the page - what color are they set as?

Tracey Mason's Studio said...

Thanks Ladies! Leslie, I used Sunflower ribbon rolled onto a circle of sunflower cardstock cut the same size as the flower itself. I rolled the ribbon & glued as I went. Brads in the center.

Mary- thanks for the heads up! I fixed those links.

Hi Tracey,

This is not my fave combo of CTMH colors, so I just had to stop by and tell you - you really made these colors look BEAUTIFUL together! I love your fresh design against the white and the clever technique (that you shared!) with your ribbon flower and your circle punch border!

I also love your kitchen too!
