Hello Everyone, 
Today is December's first Tuesday 
and time for my Craft-Dee BowZ inspiration post 

I received a Christmas gift Saturday and
wanted to make a card to express my gratitude
to my friend.

I decided that I wanted the card
to have an underlying theme
 of the Christmas season.

When I was coloring the blooms on this image I was not happy with one bloom.
So I decided to color another image but just the blooms.
After  coloring the blooms (again) I fussy cut the 2nd  bloom area
and popped it up over the original

Next, I looked at the vase and it reminded me of an old coffee pot.
So I thought I'd use some silver leaf to give it an old look

I added some satin ribbon along the right side of the card,
 made my bow using my CDB bow maker,
and attached it to the satin ribbon. 
Sometimes it makes for a interesting look 
to mix 2 different types of ribbon.
Here is a closer view of my fluffy bow. 
It's a triple loop made using very sheer ribbon (my fav)

The great thing about the Craft-Dee BowZ tool is,  
it's easy to use, it's small and portable and easy to store. 
Makes great bows, whether they are little or larger, say for a gift.

I used Winter Friends
on my card.

I used some sheer ribbon  and my Craft-Dee BowZ tool 
to make my bow. The CDB tool is so easy to use.
The great thing about the Craft-Dee BowZ tool 
is that it makes great smaller bows for cards or  gift bags
as well as the larger bows to use on regular size gifts

If you are bow challenged - the CDB tool is for you.
The tool is small and makes great bows. 
It's portable and easy to store.
