Tuesday Trigger: Crepe Bouquet

I am getting this one done under the wire...I love the bouquet featured in this week's Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World...any hand-tied bouquet is gorgeous in my books.

Crepe Paper Bouquet from Martha Stewart
I decided to make my own hand-tied bouquet on a card....

Because of the softness of the photo, I chose vellum as my card base.  I used a piece of tissue paper I had saved and die cut multiple layers of flowers, crumpling them up and attaching them together with a brad.  I ran a ribbon through a few holes on the bottom of a scrap of ivory paper and tucked some green tissue paper underneath for the ties.  Edging and rounded corners as well as a flourishy sentiment complete the look.


Stamps:  Spiral Bouquet (PTI)
Paper:  chiffon yellow (A muse studio), pure ivory (GinaK), vellum, tissue paper
Ink:  peeled paint (Ranger distress)
Accessories:  scallop trim border punch (SU), corner chomper (WeRMemory Keepers), Bigz Island Floral die (Sizzix), olive twill ribbon (SU), yellow brad (BasicGrey)

Your flower is so soft & delicate, just like the Trigger ones! And I love the idea of vellum for the card base.
