Bow Card.


Hi crafty friends and followers, hope you are having a wonderful Easter Holiday..

I have been having a play with an idea..
I have seen a few of these "Bow cards" around that use a template.
So I got to thinking if "Tattered Lace " Mega Bow Die set I have would make a similar card.
Not bad I think!! not saying will make another though.





If I did another I would use lighter weight cream card for the bows! this is around 250gsm it is to much with my favorite papers "Dovecraft Floral Muse".

Pretty cream lace from my sewing days.
Roses I think from Ribbon Box, had for a long time, great to be able to use at last.

I have inked paper & card edges with Distress Ink "Tattered Rose"
Pink string beads from E-Bay.

Base card Tattered Lace "Hexagon Shape".






I have done some distressing with white Gesso on these pretty roses and a touch of splattering.

This is the Tattered lace die I have used.



All together I cut... First (largest size) twice in cream card and twice in the next size down for patterned paper mat,
Smaller bow Smallest size twice in cream.. I then drew around the inside edge of this die onto pattered paper, to get a smaller mat.
All edges have been inked with Tattered Rose ink.. adhered these cream and patterned bows together with pva glue.
Next I curved  around my rolling pin.. to add shape.  glue each end to the center to form a bow!
To get a slanted bow shape as shown, you need to cut these bows in half and adhere onto a any card shape..I used TL Hexagon..
Lace and flowers where added next..

Items used.
Tattered Lace Essentials 'Mega Bow' Die Set- ETL329
Tattered Lace Essentials "Hexagon die set ETL 70.
Dovecraft "Floral Muse" paper collection.
Rose`s/lace/ pearls
Distress ink "Tattered Rose".


Thank you for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your Easter..Pam x

  12. This is the first of this type of card I've enjoyed, and oh my, is it ever gorgeous. I don't think I'd have the courage to even attempt it! It's just a stunning creation, and how clever of you to use that fab TL bow die. Anyone will be overjoyed to receive this one, and liked your idea of touching the flowers with gesso to add a bit of 'vintage'. TFS & Happy Easter
