In the Occasions Mini stamp set, Easter Blossoms, there is an egg image. Remember this Easter Egg tree I made? Well I was looking at this stamp the other day and thought it would make a great flower. So that is what I used to make the flower on today's card. I love it! Note: a Stamp-a-ma-jig helps alot getting correct placement!
First I cut 2 circles with the Big Shot and 2 of the new dies- one 3" and the other 3 1/2". After I stamped my "petals" on the smaller circle, I added Basic Pearls to each petal. Then I added a Vintage Flower Adornment to the center. Dimensionals popped up the smaller circle just a tad.
The ruffled ribbon is so easy and so much fun to make. Just fray the end of the Seam Binding Ribbon enough to be able to grab a few of the center threads. Pull gently on the threads moving the ruffles along until it is the way you want it to look. I tacked it down with about 5 mini glue dots in a row. The Basic Pearls are purely decorative.
I really like this card. It is so elegant! I deliberately didn't add a sentiment thinking it is more versatile that way. It could be used for just about any occasion and if I decide to add a sentiment? Well that won't be hard to add one.
