Pastel Flower Dot Cards

A simple design with scalloped circles, ribbon, and embroidery floss, all colored with Copic markers. Light green (above) and pink (below) on ivory. It didn't seem to need a sentiment, so I didn't add one.

The base layer and center 1.25" scallop are Neenah baronial ivory, a yellowish cream color. I colored the ribbon and outer 2" scalloped circle with Copic marker G40 (green) and RV10 (pink).

The embroidery floss center is a mix of cream with pink or green. I made the pink and green floss from white, colored with G40 or RV10. After separating the floss into individual strands, I used a very small crochet hook to pull it (all at the same time) through a 1/8" punched hole. The floss is adhered with Scor Tape on the back and a dot of Ranger Glossy Accents on the front.
