Welcome to my blog and do you believe it's the last Saturday of the month.
A few weeks ago I showed a card showcasing some crocheted heart lace. If you missed that post, you can check it out here. Well, I had some of that pretty pink crocheted lace left over and decided to make another card.
So here is another card for your viewing pleasure. I know I know, Valentines Day is over, but this card would make a great sweet birthday card or an I Love You card.
I was wondering what this card would look like, I first thought of a Tic-Tac-Toe design, however, I settled on a 4 corner design because the center was the perfect spot for my bow.
Let me share this card with you
I love the look of the warm pink and red along with the cool silver. This is a 6X6 card and I really like this size. It gives you a nice sized pallet to work with. As I assembled this card I placed the hearts in the corners and decided the bow would look great in the center of the card. That left a spot at the top center that turned out to be perfect for the sentiment.
The bow - This started out as a triple loop bow and that ribbon is a sheer (my fav) with a satin border. I had a small pink bow with stars, already made and sitting, waiting to be added to a card. This fit perfectly in the center of the main bow. So after stacking the bows together, I attached the bow to the center of the card. I fastened it to a ribbon I had stretched across the front of the card. I used my CDB tool to make both bows.
The Craft-Dee BowZ tool is small, portable, easy to store, easy to transport, easy to use. Are you more of a visual learner?? Me too. There are videos on YouTube that will walk you through the steps to make bows.
You can order one on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog here.
(Look on the left sidebar to place your order)
Believe it or not, I still have 1 more heart from that strip of crocheted hearts. So you may see one more card with that last heart I have.
I am submitting my card to the following challenges:
I hope you’ve enjoyed my project.
Don't forget the CDB challenge is still going on, you still have time to submit.
