Roses and Ribbons Card Tutorial

Roses and Ribbons Card Tutorial for HC Alumni Hop

roses-and-ribbons-celebrate-the-journey-by-kathy-clement-product-by-heartfelt-creations-photo-4Hello, 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.

roses-and-ribbons-celebrate-the-journey-by-kathy-clement-product-by-heartfelt-creations-photo-1This 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.

roses-and-ribbons-celebrate-the-journey-by-kathy-clement-product-by-heartfelt-creations-photo-3I 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.

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.

Creating the Botanical Rose for Roses and Ribbons Card Tutorial

Use Versamark Ink to stamp the Botanical Roses onto designer paper from Celebrate the Journey.

Heat emboss with Clear embossing powder.

Die cut with the Botanical Wings Die.

Shape with Deluxe Flower shaping tool.  Stack together.

Spritz heavily with Aged Bronze Mica Spray.  Glue on top of bow cluster

Layer papers and mini envelope together on the inside of the card.

    I just became your newest follower! I loved the tutorial. It was so helpful for me. I am looking forward to classes in November at the Tacoma CK Convention. Heartfelt is one of my favorites. I feel as if I could reach in and grab this card and frame it on my walls and it would be perfect there. It is lovely. I love the ribbon behind the flower, and the cute bike… is wonderful in every way!

    I must confess I wanted to reach right into my computer screen and snatch this card. (Not that I like stealing but this really needs to be framed and hung on my walls. WOW!

I am so excited about taking Heartfelt classes in November at your convention in Tacoma, Washington. I fly in from Idaho to attend this event. Love heartfelt!
