I then took a 2.25″x2.25″ piece of Brilliant Blue card stock and used that as a mat for the center piece of Bashful Blue card stock. I used my Cutter Kit to rough up the edges of my center piece to add even a bit more of texture to the card.
I made this flower the first time at a Stampin’ Up! Regional event here in San Antonio almost 2 years ago, and we made these flowers with Taffeta Ribbon and I thought it was so simple and beautiful. I used the Crop-A-Dile to create the holes I needed for the ribbon to run through. I will show you in a bit more detail how I made the template for the design in a minute.
Here you can see that I added a dimensional to the 3/4″ circle punch of Kiwi Kiss card stock that is mounted to the back of the Bashful Blue flower button from the Sherbet Designer Button Pack. This gives some height to the center of the flower so that it all POPs a little more than normal.
