If you know me, then you know I love to create flowers from many different mediums. Today, the medium of choice is May Arts 1.5 inch Faux Linen Ribbon in white. It pairs so well with LuminArte Silks Acrylic Glaze.
I chose to create a card. I used a 110 pound white card stock. I cut it down to the size of my embossing folder. The cover of the card was then embossed using a decorative embossing folder that paired with a coordinating strip. I painted the 2 peices using LuminArte Silks Acrylic Glaze in Coral Berry giving it a light coat. Once it was dry, I used Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Gold and rubbed it onto the embossed surface of the card and the strip. Once it was dry, I buffed it with a soft cloth. I then adhered the strip to the middle of the card using pop dots.
The flower I created from the May Arts Faux Linen Ribbon was super easy to create. I cut a 12 inch length of the ribbon, painted it with LuminArte Silks Acrylic Glaze in Coral Berry and used a heat gun to dry it. Using needle and thread, sew a running stitch on one side of the ribbon and gather it tightly. Join the ends together and sew up the seam to close your circle. Evenly distribute the gathers in the flower and add a trinket to the middle of the flower. I rubbed some of the Inka Gold on the trinket. Paint some Viva Colour Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Gold around the edges of the flower and adhere to your card. The die cut vine leaf was rubbed in the Inka Gold as well and tucked under the flower.
Now you could add a sentiment to the cover of your card, or leave it blank and write your sentiment on the inside. The ribbon flowers are fun and easy to create and think of the endless possible colors you could color them.
