I need a few anniversary cards to add to the card stockpile. Actually this one is going to my in-laws right away, so it's not going to help me get ahead.... The harder I try, the further behind I get.
I love embellishing all my cards with beautiful bows using ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon. It's the perfect finishing touch!
I'm still loving the bi-color bows and today I used silver and royal blue Delicate Stitched Satin to create this beauty on my Bow-it-All V2.0. You can view a video tutorial on how to create this bow on my YouTube channel HERE.
For the little bits of silver cording coming out the top of the bow, I cut four short pieces of Silver Metallic String about an inch long and I taped them to the back of the top of the sentiment panel in the arrangement I liked. It add an extra fun little touch. I finished off the center of my bow using a 10mm white Open Rose from WOC.
I mounted my lovely handmade paper roses over a strip of the silver Delicate Stitched Satin.
