WOW another month has flown by. And since its the 1st of the month that means it's time for a new challenge over at Craft-Dee BowZ.
Let me share with you my inspiration card
and if you go to the Craft-Dee BowZ blog
you will see the other designers inspiration cards as well.
Since we are experiencing some great spring weather here in my area, I got out a flower stamp from Rubbernecker. The dilemma I had when making my card was what color to use on the flowers. Well I will be the first to tell you I am not a huge lover of orange, but that's the color I went with.
Go figure. LOL
Go figure. LOL
This card is an A-7 card (5"X7"). I didn't want to make a square card and the stamped image is kind of large, so I went with that size.
The stamp set I chose is a 2 step set and only has 3 blooms on it. I wanted the look of a bouquet, so I stamped the image again on the left side and then on the right side of the first stamp.
See those six sided yellow/orange pieces I added to the card, I used a punch on some orange and yellow paint sample chips.I punched them out layered them offset and I popped those up.
I outlined the blossoms with orange glitter and added gold glitter to the centers.
Next I wanted the illusion of the ribbon tied around the bouquet, so I cut a slit on the right and left sides of the stems and drew my ribbon thru the slits and added a double loop bow.
Let me show you a closer view of the bow.
I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make that bow.
I chose to make a double loop bow. I think it's the perfect size for this image.
The Craft-Dee BowZ tool is so versatile, I can make a bow from 1" to 4 1/2" Perfect sizes for cards gifts and whatever else you want to add a bow to.
The tool takes up so little room, stores easy and the bows are spectacular!!
