Bubble Wrap, but not the Plastic Type

I love the idea of adding a wrap around cards, a great way to keep things together when making invitations.
I have used Jane's Lilly Clear Magic Bubble Bloom one of her new releases.
first I stamped and embossed in white on the black Textura 12 x 12 Card
Then I stamped Lilly in black on sheets from the Lavender Mist 6 x 6 Perfect Prints Pad, I used black licorice dye ink from the Stephanie Barnard collection from ColorBox for this.
I then cut out the petals, trimming inside of the black lines.
The stem is rather tricky!
To decorate the bubbles I have used a mixture of Time Flies Card Candi, Stickles in Grape Crush and Silver and White Pearl Pen. These Pearl Pens are really easy to use and hold the shape really well.
the greeting is from the die cut messages and they are great for adding a quick greeting, especially if you like to make cards in advance and then add a greeting to make it perfect for a special person. I have layered it on a punched circle with the big yellow size circle.
Now for the wrap...
The card is a square cut from a folded piece of A4. I cut a strip 2.5 inches wide and then scored it on my Groovy board to make an A4 gate fold card, then I embossed some lines.

I used the Tag Top Punch with the Square Shoulders. I used Lettuce Embossing powder to edge the wrap.
I cut a 2 inch strip of patterned paper and punched it with the same Tag Top punch. then I threaded the dotty ribbon through both ends of the wrap.
The wrap makes for a very special card.
