Craft-Dee BowZ Blog Hop!!!



Welcome to the firstCraft-Dee Bowz Blog Hop. This months blog hop is featuring a Valentine theme. If you hopped here by way of Brenda's blog then you are in the right place!! Otherwise you might wish to start at the Craft-Dee BowZ blog to become eligible for a Craft-Dee BowZ tool and a spool of beautiful ribbon.

I did a card for this project since it was Valentine themed! The main focus is the pretty bow, which of course was done with the Craft-Dee BowZ tool, it's so easy to use. I've tried other bow gadgets and had a hard time and couldn't even understand the directions to one, but this is super easy to use. I found some old scraps of paper that matched the colors in my ribbons and used some WorldWin Papers cardstock for the base and the die-cut images. The dies are Spellbinders


Here you see a close up of the bow and edge of the die-cuts. I added a little bloom to the center of the bow, not because it was messy, just for the look.

Here's another closeup. You can see I used pop dots and also added two colors of liquid pearls for accents. I liked the way it looked together.


Thank you so much for stopping by and please don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible for one of the cool tools and some ribbon! Your next stop will be Amber's blog.
