Wednesday’s Card: Build a Blossom with Seam Binding

Seam Binding Card


Hope you’re having a great week! I used the new Build-a-Blossom punch for this flower. I also got the stamp set that goes with it, but I haven’t done anything with it yet. I definitely love all the possibilities of this set!

And this is the first time I have used seam binding. It’s very cool! In the video, I slow down during that part so you can see how to do it. Simple enough – you just have to know what to do.

I don’t know why, but I just like the colors of this card. I usually like a lot of contrast, but I’m really liking the smoothness (is that a word?) of this combination.

Warning – this song starts off a little funky, but then it gets normal. 🙂 Enjoy!

SONG: “If God Was One of Us” by Joan Osbourne.

      @Amanda: There is a link below the video that goes to an audio-swapped file on my other youtube channel. You should be able to see it there. Thanks for watching!

    Lots of fun techniques in this one! Loved your video, Darlene.
    I really liked how you put together the flower and how you decorated the center with pearls. The ruffled ribbon technique was so cool too. Fabulous inspiration, as always! 🙂
