Our Love is a Flame

Hi Everyone,

This month, we are pleased to be featuring the Flame Collection - another incredible cardstock collection by The Robin's Nest.  We are also partnering with Lovebug Creations and their beautiful Rumple Ribbon.  The Robin's Nest Blog will be featuring these products in all kinds of projects all month - enjoy!

The card I designed this month went through quite the metamorphosis.  With my hubby being a Harley rider, the first image that came to mind when seeing the Mango Flame Collection was motorcycles.  Then there's adding the Rumple Ribbon. idea - a card with the Biker Babe in mind.  Well - my card did NOT turn out as I envisioned.  But I fell in love with my Rumple Ribbon flower - so my card quickly turned into an anniversary card for that Harley guy of mine.

For this card, I cut a card front using an envelope svg file resized to 5-1/2" x 4-1/4".  I used Spellbinders' Label Four Nestabilities Dies for the black and white nested labels.

I wanted a vintage feel, so I made a flower out of Sunset Rumple Ribbon.

To make the flower, first I made slits in the ribbon about 1/2" apart.  I cut a 1-1/2" circle and ran it through the Xyron.  

Then wrap the ribbon around the circle - begin on the outside edge and continue a circle until you reach the middle.  For a more vintage look, I inked the ribbon with black ink - and finished the flower with some Neon Mini Dew Drops in the center.  

I added Leaf Green Rumple Ribbon for flower leaves.  Here is a close up of the finished flower.

Neon Orange Mini Dew Drops and Black Tear Dew Drops made a fun flourish below the flower.  To make a flourish, use Glossy Accents to make a thin flourish design - adding Dew Drops.  Not good at making flourishes?  Use a stamp first!

The Mango Flame Border added to the inside message to my hubby.
