Roses and Ribbons Card Tutorial for HC Alumni Hop
Hello, Friends! It’s time for the September 2016 Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop! I’m first up on the hop this month and I’m so glad you are here. I have a super feminine Roses and Ribbons Card Tutorial to share with you.
This 6×6 top fold card is made with papers from the gorgeous Celebrate the journey paper collection. I’m so sad to see that this is on the retirement list. It’s always been a favorite. If you want to snag one before they are all gone (it’s half price!) you can get yours HERE.
I created my flower cluster using my favorite Botanical Rose stamp and die. (The details are in the tutorial below. ) The gorgeous flower sits on a lovely ribbon throne made from champagne silky crush ribbon, topped with Robin’s Egg center stitch satin and ivory burlap string.
I love the pearly little button accents!
Where I’ve tucked a sparkly notecard into a cute little die cut envelope.
Be sure to hop to all the blogs on the list and leave a nice comment behind, because one lucky person is going to be randomly selected to win a $25 Heartfelt Creations gift card from a mystery blog on the hop! It could be YOU! But you have to hop and comment! I’ll announce the winner here on Saturday, October 1st at noon EDT.
Here’s a list of the rest of the stops on this hop:

Directions for Roses and Ribbon Card Tutorial
Note: I ink all cut edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Create a 6″ x 6″ top fold kraft cardstock base.
Cut a 5 5/8″ square panel from teal pattern in Celebrate the Journey Collection, Mat onto slightly larger square of teal glitter paper.
Cut a 5 1/8″ square from the sentiment collage sheet and mat onto teal glitter paper.
Cut a 3″ x 5.75″ panel of hot air balloon paper and mat onto teal glitter paper.
Glue all three matted layers together as seen in the photo.
Cut a length of Silky Champagne Ribbon that is long enough to wrap around the layered squares.
Smoosh Peacock Feathers ink onto a craft sheet. Spritz with water until small beads form. Tap the ribbon into the ink. Gently heat dry and wrap around the layered squares from top to bottom, as seen in the photo. Top with a layer of Robin’s Egg Center Stitch Satin ribbon.
Cut a small strip of the brown patterned paper (1.5″ x 3.75″) from the collection and mat on a scrap of teal glitter paper. Center behind the layered squares and glue in place.
Glue this entire assembly onto the prepared card base.
Trim the 4″ x 6″ card topper to measure 3.75″ x 4.5″. Double mat on both teal glitter and kraft cardstock.
Spatter with Aged Bronze mica spray.
