Ribbon Sunflower Card

Ribbon Sunflower 1
A customer asked me the other day what the Jumbo Sticky Rounds in the Holiday Mini catalog were for. So this sample using a Jumbo Sticky Round (127852), Summer Starfish 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (126846) is for you Dina. :o) You take one of the rounds off the paper they come on and lay it sticky side up on your work space. Then you start sticking the ribbon on right from the roll beginning at the outside edge of the round. Pleat it as you stick it down. Spiral around until you get to the middle and cut the ribbon. You can finish off the center in a variety of ways. I chose to add an Antique Brad (117273) which I cut the legs off and adhered with a stack of several Stampin' Dimensionals. The base of the card is Gumball Green card stock. I cut a label from Early Espress Core'dinations card stock (127848) which I cut out with a Labels Collection Framelits (125598) and ran it through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (127821). I cut two leaves from Gumball Green card stock using the Autumn Accents Bigz Die (127812) and curled them along the edges with my fingers. Next I adhered the Early Espresso label to the card base, the two leaves to the label and the sunflower onto the leaves. I have quickly learned that if you use Snail to adhere Core'dinations card stock, you MUST gently  break off the adhesive to the side instead of pulling straight back. Otherwise, you end up ripping the back layer of the card stock. The last step of the card is to stamp the greeting from Petite Pairs stamp set (w-122495, c-122497) with Cajun Craze ink on Very Vanilla card stock and cut it out with the squarish Apothecary Accents Framelits (127003). I traced around that framelit onto Cajun Craze card stock and hand cut it out to layer the Very Vanilla. I mounted both of the Petite Pairs stamps on the same clear block, an advantage of the clear mount over the wood mount stamps.
