Here is some detail of the button flower:
I did not have enough cardstock in my limited travel supply to make a sturdy card base, so I found an old manilla folder that worked quite nicely.
To make the scallops you can take off the outside corner cutting guard from the EK Success punch.I also used Sharpie markers to give variety to the stamped tree leaves.
I love saddle-stitched grosgrain ribbon for many reasons, but it is also SO EASY to ruffle! All you have to do is pull gently on the saddle stitches on either one or both sides and... voila! :)
Thank you all for visiting, and have a wonderful weekend!
