Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This week's Friday Die Day is Bow Couture, one of the Victorian collection dies.
There is a total of 6 die templates, each bow has an outer die and an inset.

The measurements are:
Bow 1: 1 7/8 x 1 3/8” (Inset: 1¾ x 1 ¼”) 
Bow 2: 2 ¾ x 2” (Inset: 2 5/8 x 1 7/8”) 
Bow 3: 2½ x 2¾” (Inset: 2 3/8 x 2½”)

This is how they look cut/embossed using both the outer die and inset.
And just using the outer dies.
It's no secret that I'm not a big lover of bows, you rarely see them on my cards,
occasionally a small one and maybe a twine bow but I find this die set rather charming.
I especially like the smallest bow so I decided to design my card using that one.
I die cut three from white card and one from bright pink.
The banner is Grommet Tags and I printed the wording on my computer.
And here is the card. A white card base, 6 x 6 Matting Basics A and B
for the pink and white matting.
I positioned the bows with 3D Foam Squares and added the tag along the bottom with
matching pink pearls.

Perhaps in black and white without the pretty inset piece for a gentleman's card?
Bow Couture is available on the website here.

Have a lovely weekend, take care friends.

Hi Christine,
Well I wasn't expecting that one, butterflies yes, bows no!
But as usual you have made it work, I love the layout and the sentiment, very clever!
Do you have a quiet weekend this weekend?
I hope so as it can get too tiring if you are travelling every weekend. The boys might get used to it too and turn the house into party Central! Lol!
The spring flowers are popping up in abundance now, so a good Bella walk would be fun!
Have a good weekend whatever you are doing!

Hi Christine
What a pretty card. It was a shock to see bows on one of your cards. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

CraftyJo said...

Very cute, I don't like bows either (or glitter!) - wonder if it's 'cos we've got sons????
