Merry Christmas

Hi Everyone

 Holy Cow!! It's the 5th Tuesday of the month and this is my last post for this year for Craft-Dee BowZ. Even though Christmas is over I have one last Christmas card to share with you. This card has already been given,so I won't be revealing any surprises.

 Here is the card, closed


And here is the card opened

My bow was made using the Craft-Dee BowZ bow making tool. I had a length shorter than I usually use so I made a triple loop bow. I felt it needed to be a little fuller so since I had some scraps left over in my scrap bag, I made two single loop bows and layered them one on top of the triple loop bow to obtain a really fluffy bow. And I was able to still use up some odd lengths of green ribbon in my stash.

Here is a closer view

Here is another close-up view


All the ribbons I used are the same color however there are two different widths. But since these ribbons are all the same color, the bows all meld together and it is very hard to see that there are actually 3 different bows all tied together.

Time to get out some of those smaller ribbon pieces in your stash,
make a few bows and attach them together to make a nice fluffy bow.

The Craft-Dee BowZ tool makes bow making a breeze.
If Santa forgot to bring you one, you can order yours here

The card design I used is very unique, I have no idea as to the name of this design. But, it is easy to make (IMHO) and will stand on its own even though there is no back to it, like on a conventional card.

I love this card design. 

I plan on making another card with lots of pics and dimensions so you can make one yourself.
I think I will use a winter design since we are officially in the winter season.So stay tuned for another card design like this one showing up sometime in January.

I am submitting my card in the following challenges:

As this year winds down and comes to an end, I would like to take a few minutes to wish you all a Happy New Year. I look forward to seeing you in 2016 with more inspiration and fun projects.
