I seen a video of this about 3 months ago and have been playing around with both paper and ribbon to see the different looks you can get from them. Here I am using Pretty in Pink & Whisper White CS. White and Regal Rose Grossgrain ribbon. Flower is an off brand Flower Fusion from Hobby Lobby and last finishing touch is the button I attached to the center of the flower. I was blessed to be able to acquire alot of my Mom's old buttons from over the years. So this card is unique, because I don't think I could find another button like this ever again. I used glue dots to adhere the ribbon in different spots to keep from moving and also used snail adhesive to adhere to the back. If you want the dimensions of the card, just email me and I can forward over to you. I think it was cute and reminds me of a quilted blanket, so fitting for a brand new baby. Enjoy!!

Here is a little Flip box that I created the other day. I have to admit that I seen it on another blog, but guessed on dimensions. I used Garden Green CS, Brilliant Blue, Very Vanilla with Jumbo stamp around wheel w/brilliant blue ink. Added very vanilla Grossgrain ribbon as the handel. I attached a Scallop circle on the front with dimensionals to keep the flap closed. I also made 5 - 3 x 3 note cards to put in the inside, 2-birthday, 2-thank you & 1-hello. I will have dimensions up soon. I just wanted to get up to inspire anyone to make one of these and give it away to someone. I have learned as someone that crafts now, it brings a smile to someones face to get something like this. SHARE!! I hope you like it!
Here is a birthday card that I made last night for my cousin. I used Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Very Vanilla & Raspberry Tart DSP. Accented with Twill tape, Flower Fusion & a clear rhinstone brad. I used the stamp set Upsey Daisey "Birthday Celebrations" with the Medium Oval punch and offset it on top of another rose red punch with a dimensional. I attached my Rose Red Flower Fusion with a clear Rhinestone Brad. Simple easy and ready to mail.
