Blast From The Past- Ribbon Rose Card

I first posted this card in June.  Click here for my original post.  I am re-posting it to enter it in My Craft Spot's blast from the past challenge.
I used patterned paper from Echo Park's Beautiful Life 6x6 pad.  The doily die and the stamp I used are from My Craft Spot.  I inked around the patterned paper and the doily with brown chalk ink.  Now on to the ribbon creations!  I started out making this rose out of the  red ribbon.  To make it, I cut a 2" circle out of chipboard and covered it in 1/2" red line tape so it would be super sticky.  I just started at the center and bent the ribbon in 1/2 with the bent edge down and made a tight roll of ribbon.  Then I pressed that down in the center of the circle base and made looser circles of the ribbon around it.  I would turn the ribbon every so often to make it appear that there were petals on the rose, but I kept the ribbon folded in 1/2 the whole time.
 I used the green ribbon for the leaves and adhered them under the rose.  Of course, I couldn't just leave well enough alone, so I twisted some brown ribbon into two twigs and used off-white ribbon to make small buds on those twigs.  It gave those twigs a pussy willow-ish appearance.  I used lots of glue dots on this card for all of the ribbon.
This picture is to show you how flat the card still is!  It is still easily mailable even though there is a big flower on it :)

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
