This is the completed card. You’ll take 8 sheets of Crumb Cake cardstock and score it at 4-1/4″ the length of the sheet, and then cut in half. It’s easier to score first to save time.

Cut the thick white cardstock down to 7-1/2″ x 10″, then cut in half and in half again to create your panels of 3-3/4″ x 5″. Punch out your flags, die cut the ferns, stamp and punch, trim your ribbons, and you’ll have all your parts.

The tools you will need are Tear and Stick tape (LOVE this!) and your Handheld Stapler. You’ll use three staples each card, so it’s a good idea to have another package of the staples on hand. Your additional choice will be SNAIL or Fast Fuse or double sided tape or any combination.

When you’re ready to start, first thing is to staple the flag in place on all card panels.

Assemble your corsage and staple in place using two staples through all layers and attaching the fern stem in place.

The ribbon is cut at 5″ and then fish tail the ends. This way you get plenty of length to go across the card and wrap securely to the back. Attach the ribbon with a piece of the Tear and Stick tape. When you’re ready to assemble the card panel to the bases, just pull that covering off and apply the rest of your adhesive needed to attach them.

  1. Hi Celia,  I love this card that you sent me!  I'm so impressed with your creative talent and your website.  I just learned a lot from looking at it.  Are your craft items similar to those used in scrapbooking?  

    Thank so much for sending and for volunteering for Rescue.  

    All the best,  Sue Wesson

    1. Yes, Sue!  The materials that I use and sell are the same as those used in scrapbooking. Stampin' Up! was started in 1988 specifically for card making but was started by two sisters out of their living room who both scrapbooked! Would you like me to send you a new catalog when they are starting June first?
