SCIC 19


I made this card for Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #19. The challenges can be found here. I used the Daisies #2 Die to cut the flowers out of cherry cobbler and sponged the edges with early espresso ink. I then took a 2x2 piece of early espresso, placed a 2x2 piece from the sticky pages on top and then die cut the early espresso & sticky page into a circle using the Circles #2 die. I removed the red lining from the circle and then "twisted" early espresso 1/4" ribbon around the circle for the center of the flower. I have seen many centers and flowers with this technique and wanted to try it myself! I added the early espresso 5/8" grosgrain bow and then adhered the flower onto Crumb Cake card stock that was embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.
