On the 1st Tuesday of each month I post a card for Craft-Dee BowZ. This card must contain a bow that I have made but other than that I can make anything, card or whatever and I can choose the theme.
Well I belong to a Birthday Card Club over on Facebook and I have to send out birthday cards each month to different recipients. So I make a few birthday cards each month and I thought I'd share this one with you. It will go to a person who has a June birthday.
As I was making this card I used some things that were on my desk, begging to be included in a card and I also tried out the new Distress Oxides and used a piece as a background. But it's kind of hard to see because I have so many things that really cover that up.
Now.... I usually don't use orange on cards, it's just not one of my favorite colors
but this orange ribbon worked great with this card.
Hope you can see some of the oxide background I made,
its by the daisies and above the happy birthday die cut.
I also used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punches to get the unusual panel.
I punched the 4 corners then I punched one straight punch, not connecting all the way around.
(Hope that made sense.) I then added a pink piece on the unpunched edge just to make this layered card panel really different. Oh and the daisy centers, I colored them using fossilized amber oxide, I used a paint brush and tapped it on, I also added a halo of cracked pistachio to accent that amber color.
Let me show a closer view of my double loop bow I made for this card.
Using my Craft-Dee BowZ tool, this type of bow is so easy to make.
