Time for the February challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ. Let me share with you the inspiration card I made for the challenge post over there.
I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make my fluffy multi-loop bow and it turned out really nice.
Let me share a little bit about how I made this card.
I like using 5"X7" card, it gives me more room to work with. (a bigger canvas as I sometimes will call it.)A lot of times I will start out with a card stock panel which is a bit smaller than the front of the card and make the card front and attach it to the actual card.
In making this card, I used designer paper (DP) for the background, and added paper doilies under 3 of the sides to add more visual interest. I then added that layer to the red panel. Next I made a triple loop bow using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool and added that to the side of the red panel. Then I found the cutest digital Valentine's image from Graphics Fairy (sentiment is on that image) and attached that on the DP layer. I then attached the panel to the card front. I decided to add hearts and thought that attaching them to red and white twine would look really nice.I used 2 strands of bakers twine about 7" long. I cut 8 larger and 12 smaller hearts and sandwiched the twine between two hearts. I positioned the twine behind the bow and let the hearts dangle freely. And the card is done. Using the two sizes of hearts on the twine gave this card the finishing touch.
Here is a close-up of those hearts.
My bow is made using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool. Its a tool that is always on my table. It makes bow making a breeze. If you are a challenged bow maker this tool is the answer to your prayers.
