Very Easy Card



Morning all

So, I have to hold my hands up to being completely pants with my New Years resolution of posting a new card every other day...in my defense, I've had a cold/tummy bug you name it, I've had it and haven't crafted for chuffin' ages!!

I will do better, I promise!

Anyway, today I want to show you a really really simple card I have made with a handmade flower on it that I have made into a brooch so that my friend can wear it!






Recipe: ribbon from gift, 12x12 paper from stash, Making Memories chipboard pieces, button from stash.

I have had these chipboard pieces for years, and they are never the right colour so I turned them over and coloured them myself and added the stitching detail.  The ribbon flower is my favourite thing to make...so easy but looks so amazing.  I shall be doing a tutorial on this in the future on my challenge blog Top Tip Tuesday.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:

CRAFT Challenge #85 - Moving Components - the brooch moves and comes off the card!!
4 Crafty Chicks - Show us some metal - the metal pin on the back of the brooch
Dutch Date #95 - All Stitched Up - real stitching on the ribbon, and faux stitching on chipboard and button

Thanks for stopping by!

Pin It Now!
