  2. Stamp polka dot patter on bottom half of cardstock base.
  3. Stamp sentiment.
  4. Ruffle ribbon treatment, then stitch the edges.
  5. Stamp tulips and dragon flies, cut out, then pop off card front.

Tips & Tricks
  • To create a ruffled ribbon trim, I like to use scor-tape, then pleat the ribbon bit-by-bit. This time, I secured the edges with stitching, but it will stay on its own with a clean cut on the edge.

They're all gorgeous, Ashley! I especially love the first two. I love the deer and the color scheme of the first one and the rolled fabric flower with the tiny pins on the second one.

Jessica said...

These are all lovely, Ashley!!! I must say if I was forced to choose one I'd go with that green "Luck" one love the sentiment (couldn't agree more with it), design and textures. TFS
