Let’s add a Bow Tie

March 13, 2015

Don’t you love that cute Bow Builder Punch  in the new Occasions Catalogue.  The bows are so easy to make and add that something extra special to your projects.  I have seen this punch used to create bow ties for “shirt” cards and thought that I would give it a try.   I created this card for a recent class at Beachmere Retirement Resort.

I embossed the top two thirds of Whisper White card using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I stamped the bottom portion of the card using the “happy birthday” stamp from the Sassy Salutations stamp set and Soft Suede ink.  I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I cut a square of polka dot designer series paper from the Neutrals Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack, cut a slit in the centre of one edge and folded the corners back to create  a “shirt collar”.  0535I attached a narrow strip of Soft Suede card to the bottom edge of the designer series paper before attaching it to the card front.  I punched the pieces for the bow from the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (free during Sale-a-bration) and attached it to the card front using Glue Dots.  I added two buttons made using the Simply Pressed Clay and the Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Mold  using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.  I punched two circles from Soft Suede card using the Owl Builder Punch and added them to the centre of each button.

Inside the card I added a strip of Soft Suede card to one long edge of Whisper White card embossed using the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel is attached to the lower edge of Whisper White card.

Simple, but so cute.  Can you image the possibilities?

Bye for now,
