WOW! The response to the video tutorial on Paper Punch Faux Bowshas been tremendous. Your sweet and encouraging comments have definitely been uplifting. I am so pleased when I am able to contribute the the enjoyment of paper crafters everywhere. Here is another card that uses the faux bow technique. It was also a convention sample, but, just like the last card, I really wanted to wait until I had done the video before sharing it. On this particular bow, I punched the top of the ribbon tails at an angle.
I know this isn't the best card I have ever made. I wish there had been more contrast between the bow and the wreath. But at the time I was trying to crank out 24 samples and I decided to move on and let it go the way it was. I used the Daydream Medallion stamp set for the wreath and the Curly Cute set for the sentiment. I mixed DSP from Twitterpated and the Regals Collection stack.
It was also my first time using the Dazzling Details. I didn't realize that it would dry flat. In retrospect, I think I would have just punched out small circles from glitter paper to use as the ornaments. It would have saved a tremendous amount of drying time. Don't get me wrong...I love the Dazzling Details, but just not for this particular project. I also used two different framelit collections...the Labels Collection and the Floral Frames. Of course, if you have watched the video, you know that I also used the Large Oval Punch to create the bow. The card base is Cherry Cobbler and it is layered with Always Artichoke.
The weather is absolutely beautiful this week, so I am trying to finish up some much needed work outside. But never fear, I still have some projects that I have been waiting to share, so be sure to check back later this week.
