Pals Paper Arts is having a fun challenge this week- create a CAS card with a bow being the focus. Well I knew that I wanted to showcase the great new accessories from the Occasions Mini Catalogue at this months Stamp Club. And what better ways to show off Stampin' Up's fabulous Fabric then making it the focal point of a fresh fun card, (especially for some one like me who doesn't sew-YET :)
Here is the card I came up with:
I started with a River Rock card stock base then attached the striped pattern from the Spring Time Vintage Designer Series paper that I had stamped with the blossom image from the Easter Blossoms set in River Rock Classic Ink. Next I ran it through my Big Shot with the NEW Framed Tulips Impressions Folder. The raised border was then gently sanded to reaveal some of the white core in the DSP. The girl sillouette image is from the same stamp set and was inked up using River Rock and stamped on the largest Oval from the Ovals Die.
I then used a strip of fabric from the Springtime Vintage Designer Fabric (cut about 1inch wide)
and tied it around the card. Before I tied it into a knot I put a piece of LinenThread in the center of where I was going to finish the knot. This way it would be secured into place so that when I added my button to it the button would not slip, and would stay centered. I used a Night of Navy button from the Springtime Vintage Big Designer Buttons. For the sentiment I stamped it in Night of Navy then punched it out using the Decorative Label Punch. To create a smaller label I just reinserted it into the punch. Sherri Barron has a great video showing how to do this.
Wishing everyone a wonderful day,
