Ruffled Ribbon Flower

Hello! If you  saw my previous blog post, I shared how to color ribbon or seam binding then make a ruffle out of it. Today I thought I would show how to make some easy ribbon flowers using the ruffled ribbon.

I also wanted to share my entry in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge.
They are a great site that offers great printable quotes and scriptures. I am actually using last week's verse because I planned this but did not get to make my cards in time. (ha)
Be sure to go by their blog for more information :)

I share two different ribbon flowers in the video. On the card above, I just took the ruffled ribbon and wrapped it onto a card stock circle that I put adhesive on. Then I added a pearl.

For the base of the card, I stamped (yes, I stamped :) and inked plain white card stock with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. The middle layer was inked, embossed, then I rubbed the ink pad direct to paper. (Here is a link to a 4 minute video showing that technique) 

For the other flowers below, I gathered a short piece of seam binding and formed a circle. Then added a pearl. The leaves are the same technique but in a smaller version.

I used the same embossing & inking technique on this card.

You can check out the ruffled ribbon flower tutorial here.


I am entering the first card in the Word Art Wednesday challenge.
