Happy Saturday to you! Today's Stamp Simply Style Inspiration is coming to us from Melissa Frances Products! I've made a much needed Congrats card using paper from Melissa Frances Kitchsy Kitchen 6" x 6" paper pad and crepe paper from Melissa Frances Vintage Crepe Paper Assortment! I LOVE this crepe paper, takes me back to the quality crepe paper of my youth! The card base size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
I want to share how I created my crepe paper flower! It's so simple and easy! Above you see three layers of blue crepe paper. I have placed all Spellbinders Blossoms Three dies in order of size before running it through my Grand Calibur. This created rings of die cut blossom edging in various sizes!
After separating the die cut blossom rings, I cut the ring to allow a starting end point! The adhesive foundation to the flower is a Cosmo Cricket Gluber. It is a very sticky circle that has adhesive on both sides.
In this photo, I started with the end point, pressing the inner blossom die cut on the outer edge of the gluber circle, continuing around in a circle, stretching the paper while pressing. Stretching the edge creates ripples in the crepe paper thus creating the look of a flower!
Here is a closer look at the flower! Once all the gluber was covered with crepe paper, I went in and stretched the crepe paper edging even more. Melissa Frances adhesive pearls are found HERE. The card sentiment is from JustRite's You are the Best Cling Set and cut out using Spellbinder's Lacey Pennant Set dies.
