RCC54: All About Flowers

Hello!  I’m back with another card to share with all of you today (scroll down to the next post for my Sparkle Creations card). 

RCC54

This week our fabulous Crewmate Andrea Ewen is challenging us to make some flowers out of ribbon, fabric, felt, or burlap! (Or you can just add pretty flowers to your project!).  For all the details on the challenge (and to see more pretty flowers) head over to the Ribbon Carousel Blog.

My card is all about the big flower with only a touch of stamping.  I used a Sizzix flower die to cut out some flower parts from a sheet of corrugated cardboard and a couple of different colors of wool-blend felt.  After adhering the layers together I punched a couple of small holes in the center of the flower and attached an orange button using jute.  More jute and some Elegant Peacock vintage seam binding were tied around main panels before adhering the flower in place using some foam dimensionals.  It is very bulky, but oh so nice! :)
