Valentines Ribbon Rose Card Set and Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC68



Hi Friends! Sorry I haven't posted anything the past few days. I haven't had time to craft anything until today because I'm in the middle of a garage reorganization. I decided to take a break today because all the dust churned up has been causing havoc on my allergies! I've been feeling stuffy and my lungs feel so constricted because of all the dust.

Anyway. . .I decided to work on a few Valentines cards. Lately I've been enjoying creating sets because I can whip up a bunch of cards really quickly if I use the same design on all of my cards.
I wanted to create a rose using fabric but I found a good video on how to create a rose using ribbons. I could probably use the same technique to create a fabric rose.

Because the Play Date Cafe's challenge this week is shabby chic/vintage, I thought it would be fun to enter in the challenge! I don't normally play in challenges much but this was a fun one because I do love anything shabby chic or vintage. Stop by the Play Date Cafe and play along in the challenge!!




The lady in the video created her roses using "satin" ribbons but I used a wired organdy ribbon for mine. The results are a bit different because the organdy ribbon is a bit more sheer so you have to do a bit more layering but I like how it turned out anyway. If you want to try out the tutorial, CLICK HERE. It takes a few tries but once you've done it a few times, it gets easier.

I added a beaded pin to the bow. I made a bunch of them a few weeks ago and decided to use them. I also did a bit of sewing on my card.

I stamped the sentiment from the SU "Always" stamps set on fabric. I used a Versacraft (formerly known as Fabrico) ink pad which is a wonderful ink for stamping on fabric. After stamping the image, heat set it and you're good to go!!


I think I'll sew something later today. I'm having a lot of fun with sewing!! Unfortunately, I can't finish a project as quick as I can a card.

That's it for today! Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!!
