Congrats Card by Jessica Witty



1. Make card from cardstock. Cover with patterned paper.
2. Machine stitch a spiral pattern over card front.
3. Punch a circle of cardstock and cover with adhesive. Trim strips of fabric paper - skinny strips for small flowers and wider strips for large flowers. Peel the fabric away from the adhesive and paper backing. Adhere the fabric strip to the center of the cardstock circle. Twist the fabric and begin pressing it as you move along the spiral. When you get to the end of a strip, tuck the end under the flower and add extra adhesive if needed. Add another strip to make a larger flower or trim the excess cardstock behind the flower. Stitch buttons to flower centers.

4. Adhere flowers to card using foam tape.
5. Thread buttons and adhere to card along with sentiment.

Get Happy Ribbon by Cosmo Cricket
(I didn't use this ribbon, but it's close)

Directions for Bow:

Making a layered bow is easier than it seems. First, cut three lengths of ribbon, one slightly longer than the other two.

Take the longest piece and make a circle with it, securing the ends with a glue dot. Add another glue dot to the center and adhere it to one of the other ribbon pieces

Repeat with the third piece of ribbon. Add it to the top.

Cut a notch on the edge of the 'tail' of the ribbon. Add a brad, jewel or flower to the center.

Directions for Card:

To make this card, create the card base and add the green paper to cover it.

Cut the purple paper for the top panel.

Add a piece of the clear sticker to white cardstock and cut to fit the card front.

Add a punched blue border below the sticker.

Add the layered bow. Top it off with a white flower and pearl colored with a Copic marker.
