I got my inspiration from Traditional Card Techniques by Marie Browning. I used an "iris folding" pattern that incorporated five different sections. For each of those sections I used a different turquoise, brown or combo of turquoise and brown ribbon. Let me tell you...it wasn't easy finding five ribbons that went with each other!!!
Here is a close up of the iris. I made it on a piece of brown cardstock. On the turquoise card base I cut a larger circle and placed the brown underneath. After adhering I attached another brown piece to the back of the iris on the inside of the card.
I finished the front by gluing down four brown strips to form a square shape. On the inside I added a brown piece for the greeting. I corner punched the piece and glued it down.
This is the book I mentioned...
