Another Ribbon Flower Card


I posted a very similar card a few  months ago. I did not have the same supplies today, so I changed the design a little bit. I made a shutter card/step card using purple cardstock, purple pearlized paper and an oldie but goodie Anna Griffin patterned paper. I added a 3 inch corner flourish from Cricut Home Accent cartridge, then used ribbons and pearls to make the embellishments.
(I hope to do a video soon on how to make the ribbon flowers) I did not have any pre-made pearl accents so I made my own by sewing and gluing them to the card. (more on that later this week)

It is hard to tell from the pictures, but that is a glass bead in the center of the large flower.
The large flower was made with a variegated wire edged ribbon. The smaller ribbon started out blue. I misted it with purple Glimmer Mist to dye it the color I wanted it.


Here is a handy tip: Mist ribbons and embellishments in an old magazine. The glossy paper keeps you from wasting as much mist as you would on regular paper or a cardboard box. When you are done, you can just rip out the wet pages and throw them away. Easy Peasy.
