Christmas Ribbon Flower

Such a clever little idea this one but I can't claim the Glory as it was designed by a very talented lady Claire and she explains beautifully how it is done here




The only problem I had with it was how to cover the ribbon at the back of the card so here is what I did.

I took an extra piece of the gold card and cut a hole where the ribbon was with a Nestabilies die and kept the scalloped circle to one side, I covered the inside of the front with the gold sheet then added the scalloped circle with foam pads to allow for the bulked up ribbon at the back of the card, see images below.

Love the card Jak, bit of a bummer when I haven't got any scallopped circle nestabilities. Oh well might put them on my christmas wish list.
