3d Flower Card, Mounting it onto your card

Good Morning,
I hope you enjoyed yesterdays tutorial (you can see it HERE) and if you stuck with it right 'till the end then well done! If you have no idea what I am talking about, then please look in my side bar for a link.
If you do make one of these flowers then please send me the link, I would love to see :-D
And if I met you in Lyndhurst at the craft fair yesterday, then Welcome :-)
So, I promised you a way of mounting the flower onto your card, it is quite deep so I think it will be a jiffy bag job to send or better still, wrap your card in cellophane, tie it with a pretty ribbon and hand deliver to your friend.
I recommend mounting your flower through a mat on the front of your card, that way it isn't a little point trying to stick to the front of a card and possibly ripping off! eek!
So first you punch a 3/4" hole into your mat,

Next add your ribbon "leaves" I stuck mine with DST, attach the mat to your card with dimensionals then add a line of glue (tombow) around the circle and in the middle as shown,

Stick your flower holding the lower layer of petals to the mat to stick, (this is where tombow is great as it sticks quickly and firmly)

TOP TIP: Now I am sure most of you know/already do this but I will mention it anyway, just in case.
I decided that I wanted to spritz just my flower with shimmer spray, but I didn't want it all over the rest of the card. So I put post it notes all around tucked under the edges, spritzed and then removed them... quickly ;-)

And this is the finished card :-D
Sentiment is Curly Cute with Seam Binding ribbon leaves and Elegant Soiree DSP.

And a close up picture of the flower,
Well, I hope this has been of some help to somebody and I look forward to seeing your creations,
Stampin' Hugs,
