How can melted ribbon be elegant, you ask?
Oh, let me SHOW you! :)
I saw this technique somewhere, fell in love with it...and gave it a whirl! :)
I made this card as a thank-you to someone sweet...someone who had a giveaway on her blog, and I WON! :) It turned out to be a bit belated because of stuff going on here, but I always say A thank you is better than no thank you! :)
FYI: I actually made two. Hers is the first one I tried, and the petals are a titch smaller. That one took longer, but I thought it went better with the paper, so that's the one I sent to her. I really hope she got it ok...I have visions of it being mangled in the mail, even though I had paid extra for that to NOT happen. ;-b
The leaves - cut freehand leaves, folded in half lengthwise, then ran through the crimper. :)
I will tell you this is not a quickie-technique, to be sure! It took awhile, but I sure love the end result! I also love that it could be used for MANY occasions! :)
