Flowers Of Happiness

Hello everyone, I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend so far! I wanted to stop in real quick to share this card that I made awhile ago that was inspired by this card from the fabulous Heather.

*The Early Espresso card base was stamped tone on tone with the leaf image from the Flowers Of Happiness stamp set.
*To create the pleated ribbon I cut a strip of scrap cardstock that measured the width of the card and about .5 in. high. I added a strip of adhesive along the scrap cardstock and then folded the ribbon in a pleated style tacking it to the adhesive with each fold. I then used my sewing machine to sew it down the middle to keep it in place.
*Stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock with Early Espresso ink.
*Flower was stamped in Momento ink 5 times, colored with Copic markers, cut out and layered with dimensionals before being adhered to the card


Supplies
Ink: Early Espresso, Momento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Early Espresso, White
Accessories: Ribbon, Sewing Machine, Copic Markers
