Bits and Pieces

SUO101Happy Tuesday everyone!  Boy…it’s been a while since I made a Mary Bow!  (Click here for my tutorial.).  I have been doing these bows for YEARS and even presented this at a Stampin’ Up! regional event.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this or mot but you are seeing fewer bows on cards these days…now LOTS of people are still using them but I think there is a trend away from them.  I know that I have stopped doing many bows and I used to have to have a BOW on EVERYTHING!!!  When it comes to making bows though the 7/8″ Cotton ribbon has to be my all time favorite so as I was planning this card it started with THE BOW!

Here’s the details –

  • Hello Honey – 4 1/4 x 11 folded, corner round bottom right, run through Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder
  • Hello Honey – 4 3/4 x 3 1/2, round bottom right corner, stamp the diagonal stripes from the bits and pieces set using Memento Black, layer onto Basic Black 4 7/8 x 3 5/8.
  • Stamp greeting using Memento Black
  • Make bow (remember check out my tutorial) using 7/8″ cotton ribbon and Candy Dots base, add to panel then add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Basic Rhinestones under the greeting to finish it off.

I do LOVE clean and simple cards and even those can have bows!  Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see which one they picked!
