Petal Parade Card . . . Jazzed Up with an Easy Ruffled Accent!

 

You know me. . . I love it when I find super simple ways to do anything!  I don't know which adds more to the final look of this card. . . the Sweet Sorbet paper or the cute accent made with the Petal Parade stamps and ruffle stretch trim!  (Super easy to do. . . read on!)

 

Petal Parade Card

I was inspired by and idea that I saved, but it had no watermark or name on it, so if it's your card . . . please let me know!  I loved it enough to make my own.

 

  Ruffle Accent

Here are some tips:

  • The designer paper strips on the front of the card (4-1/4 x 11, folded) are 1 x 5-1/4.
  • The center flower is punched out with the 1-3/8 Circle Punch.
  • Stamp the larger flower on a 2 x 2 piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. Cut a 2 x 2 piece of Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheet and adhere to the back.  Punch out with the 1-3/4 Circle Punch.  (HINT:  When making multiples, cut a 2" strip and apply the same length strip Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, then stamp and punch.)

 

Adhesive Sheet

  • Peel the protective back from your circle.
  • Attach ruffle stretch trim to the adhesive on the back of your stamped circle, pressing as you go.  Cut to fit.  (HINT:  Be sure to press well around the edges to secure your ribbon.)
