Stampin' Up! Vintage Vogue Flower Card

I love this color combination - Mellow Moss, Pale Plum, and Perfect Plum.  I also used a Very Vanilla card stock, ribbon, and brad.  Stamp set is the new Clear Mount Vintage Vogue in the Occasions Mini Catalog.

The medallion is made by cutting a 2 7/8" square of Perfect Plum.  Then center each side in the Scallop Border punch and punch all four sides. A Very Vanilla piece of 2 13/16" square is adhered to the back of the medallion. I like how it turned out.

I used the Rock and Roll method of inking on the flowers and then cut them out with paper snips.  Moving the paper instead of your scissors helps make nice cuts.  Used a Vanilla brad as the center of the flower and it also holds the two flowers together.  I used a bone folder to curl the petals of the flowers.

To do the Rock and Roll technique, load your stamp with the lightest color ink first then roll the edges of the stamp on the darker stamp pad.  Easy and cute!

Glue dots are perfect for attaching the ribbon and buttons.  The buttons are from the Button Latte collection. I tied ecru crochet thread in the buttons.

Perfect Plum card base - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Pale Plum - 4" x 5 1/4"
Perfect Plum medallion - 2 7/8" square
Very Vanilla - 2 13/16" square
