Being that it's the 4th Tuesday of the month, it's my turn to post on Craft-Dee BowZ! The Design Team is working with butterflies, doilies and flowers this month along with the color "pink". Pink has become synonymous with October and "Breast Cancer Awareness". The challenges Crafty Friends and As You Like It have asked what's my favorite color. That's so hard to say since I love all color. But when doing a card with such a sweet design as the one below, the soft pastels are my favorite to use. I decided to do something a little different than my usual style and I have so many pretty embossing folders and never use them...and it's time to stretch and use some of these craft items I've been collecting.
folder is by Couture Creations and I used pink White Washed paper by
Co'ordinations and then sanded the embossed areas for the pink to show
through. I used my Ranger Distressing Tool on the edges. The butterfly die is
by Memory Box and I coated it with glue and then sprinkled Crystal Snow glitter
by Stampendous all over it. The pearls on my card are from assorted
packages in my stash. The sentiment is by Lili of the Valley and I used my
Stampin' Up punch around it. And, so that you can put this card in perspective,
the size of it is 5.25 X 7.5 inches.
bow is a double loop and I used my Craft-Dee BowZ tool to make it. It was so easy
to get the bow straight and the tails out straight using this tool! I
added this pretty button with the back cut off in the middle of my
bow. Thank you to Donna at Craft-Dee BowZ for this pretty ribbon.
Have you seen the cards posted each Tuesday by a member of the Design
Team? If you haven't, please stop by here and
take a look. And like you, we appreciate a kind word or two if you have time.
Since this is the last Tuesday of the month, you have just a few
more days to get your card done and posted to the Craft-Dee
BowZ challenge blog for this month's challenge of ANYTHING GOES AND INCLUDE A HAND MADE BOW.
And I'd like to remind you that a bow made from a die cut doesn't count as a
hand made bow. And, stamped or digital bows on an image's dress or on your
project don't count as a hand made bow, either.
