Card with ribbon and lace flower- with tutorial

Hi peeps, 
Hope you are doing good my friends. I just got home after spending 4 weeks on holiday. I had a great time, not much crafting (just a little, tiny bit of coloring...lol), but i had lots of sun and quality time with family and friends. Now I'm back and hope to spend time with my stamps and crafting goods. I had the chance to stop by the Magnolia store in Borås, Sweden this summer, so I have LOTS of new Maggies to ink up. Can't wait! 

But before I get a chance to have a date with my crafting space,  I wanted to show you a small tutorial I made earlier, using ribbon and lace to make flowers for my card. Yes, lovelies, I actually made a card without a stamped image...lol! 

Here's it is, with the tutorial:

I used craft as the card base and Pion Design DP's. I used a Spellbinder die for the frame and the ribbon is from the Live & Love Craft Store so are the beautiful birdcage charm and metal corners., The lace is from Papirpikene. The text is from an old K& Company cut- out- sheet and the pearl pins are by Maya Road. I used a doily and corrugated cardboard from my stash.  

1. You need some ribbon or lace, the wider the ribbon- the larger your flower will be. You also need a sewing needle, some thread and your scissors.

2 Start by attaching the thread at the end of the the ribbon. Sew up and down at the edge of the lace, or on the stitching (if there is one) as shown here.
3. Tighten the thread as you sew so you get an idea of ​​the size and thickness of the flower.
4. Attach the thread and... your flower is done! Here I have done the same with a piece of lace.

5. Here they are on my finished card. 

(The tutorial can be found in Norwegian in the june edition of Ett Trykk Magazine 2013)

Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I know I have been M.I.A  because of my holidays, but I will be visiting your blogs very soon! I can't wait to see what you have been up to this summer! 
See you soon!

Hello Dear Elizabeth, fabulous card, the layout is fantastic, then your flower is gorgeous, I love it when people make their own flowers, it worth it so original and one of a kind, your tutorial is wonderful, love the stick pins and the birdcage is gorgeous in the middle. I'm going to be making some purses with the paper bags, which you posted in April for our family reunion, on our craft table, so thanks for that too, I'll post them when I finish them. Have a wonderful week..
