Dawn Rene here to share the second card I made with The Rubber Cafe's March, Creative Cafe Card kit. My card today is featuring a Tri-Shutter template, I selected this fold so I could highlight all the stamps in the kit and the various patterned papers.
Here is a picture of the card standing up.
For the base of the card, I used a 6" x 12" piece of cream cardstock. These are the instructions for folding the card.
* Measure and mark out the lines on the cardstock
* Cut on the red lines
* Fold on the blue lines to make the "mountains" (these lines bend upward towards you)
The pink flower on the front of the card was made with ribbon from the kit and Scrap Happy Glue. I learned how to make this flower at a Scrapbook Expo a couple years ago in a The Rubber Cafe' class I've included a step-out tutorial below, and you can also see Melissa's video posted here on The Rubber Cafe' website where she creates fabric roses.
To begin, start with a large circle of Scrap Happy Glue on a piece of parchment paper and let it cure over night. It makes a large glue dot to use for the base of the ribbon flower and will remain tacky to the touch. You just press the edge of the ribbon round the glue dot - making small gathers, as you can see in my picture below I worked from the outside on. Simple and easy!
