4 x 4 Square Kraft Clean and Simple Card

Images from the CTMH Treasure Life stamp set embossed in white
I love the simple, sweet elegance of white on kraft paper.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets and I find that I use it a lot!  When I saw that CFC #20 was for a mini-card, I knew that I was going to make this card to enter the challenge.  

Rolled Flower using Martha Stewart Heart Chain Edge Punch
Rolled flowers are easy to make with edge punches.  One of the nice things about rolled flowers is that they can be made in a variety of sizes.  This is on the small-ish side, about 1 1/2" across.  The strip of paper was 12" long.

A simple white grosgrain ribbon and fork bow complete the card
This is also a one layer card,  in that there is no matting.  The images were stamped onto the card base.

Please visit the following sites to see the challenges for which I have entered this sweet little card.

  8. Do you have a tutorial on how you created this flower. I cut a 12" x 1.5" strip and punched it, but I had no clue how you wound it up to look this flat without causing wrinkles in the design. I would love a tutorial! Thanks!
