Hello there blog friends. Today I have a flower tutorial/video showing you how I made this sweet crepe paper flower. First, I want to apologize for the video quality... I recorded in HD, and it looks great on my computer, but when I watched it on YouTube, not so good :( My original video was over 35 minutes long, so I had to take a lot out.
For my card today, I used JustRite's Scrolled Vine background stamp, stamped on white cardstock with VersaMark ink, then heat set white embossing powder. With a small paint brush, water and Tattered Rose Distress Ink, I lightly painted in areas of the background image. Fold white cardstock in half, and place Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangle die template so the corners of the die are placed over the fold on the cardstock, then cut/emboss. Now, cut/emboss pink cardstock using the same die set as before, only the next size down in the set. Layer all cardstock with foam tape, but before attaching the stamped layer (top layer), add your ribbon then attach. With your crepe paper, cut your flower and leaves.
